One State, Two State, Red State, Blue State

In regards to Py's earlier post on the "beginning" of the election campaign, it's nice to see how things have changed.

Remember this picture?


Well, it seems that some things are, ahem, a little different now:


And while I agree with Py that the 2008 election is far from decided right now, that blue picture shore duz warm my heart.

Yeah, it's a nice map. But we aren't running against shrub, so the numbers will change. Good post.

I'm ashamed that as many as 25% of my fellow Californians actually approve of the guy.

And Pygalgia, you're right--and we've got to do everything possible to hang him around the Republican nominee's neck.

Just a note. Kevin Philips, in "American Theocracy", does a fine job correlating the "red state" phenom with the spread of the Southern Baptist Convention, a primary target for GOP PR folks. Bush policy is so bad it looks like the red infection has been stalled. I guess we can say horrible policies serve as an anti-biotic against bad politics.

Just imagine the state of affairs if Bush was competent and these immoral wars were working. We would have a bright red nation planning attacks on all kinds of innocent people.

I'm ashamed that in my state, Wisconsin, he's still in the 31-35% range.
