Lavender left? *g*







The boingboingers will have seen this already....

I wondered why the foolish networks even stuck with red and blue - green and purple would have been nice. They just had to continue the freaking divisiveness... :^P
Winner-take-all electoral system.

Of course, lest we think a parliamentary system in *necessarily* better, there's always Italy....
I know, but considering "red" and "blue" have become political epithets, they could have gone with two different colors.
Divisiveness is news</a>. This just reminds us there are people who agree, and people who disagree, with us everywhere. What's the fun in that? We might remember we are all one country, and try and get along. There's no exciting news story to pontificate over in that: "Americans agree they agree about some things and disagree about others, promise to try and work things out without screaming and throwing things". If that was J-Lo and whichever husband it is she's on now it would sell no copies. Excuse me, I'm annoyed with the media for some reason. Can't imagine why.
You've (well, not you) created a lavender map by weighting the votes for two candidates who opposed gay marriage.

I find this more than a little amusing.
Thus, the title. *g*

Irony is not dead. It's just exhausted from all the hard work.

Oh, great line.

Also from BoingBoing, the vote by counties. Which is useful, if not as interesting.

Fun to id the location of major cities by looking for blue counties in a sea of red.

Why is the state of MA not bluer on the country map?
It's the bluest one there, on my monitor.

One would presume that SOMEBODY in the state voted Republican.

There is one good thing to come out of this. I don't have to re-register. (I usually register for the party that's not in power, or the party whose primaries I most want to vote in.)

*sigh* My brother. He's a single issue voter, pro-gun.

I just tell myself that he can't do that much damage in our home state and console myself for being one of the people that helped tint Michigan to the blue.
On the California map there are several rural counties which are also blue -- the logging-and-pot-growing coastal North, and Monterey county among them.

I think that in my state the counties voted for Bush where the people had fantasies of themselves one day being an independent landowner like Bush.

I'm breaking my promise to myself not to do this until I'm over it.
Ohio has some blue rural counties also. And Cincinnati went for Bush.

The single blues just look kinda lonely.

MA looks barely bluer than 50/50 on my screen.
Ohio has some blue rural counties also. And Cincinnati went for Bush.

Only four that I can count, and two of those have big college towns (Athens and Steubenville). And Cincinnati always goes Republican. It's the conservative stronghold of Ohio.
Interesting to me! In Texas, you've got Austin as a little blue island, and then all the areas in which the black/Latino population outnumbers the whites. Not sure what that bit is right next to the Louisiana border, though.
The only states with no blue counties are Oklahoma and Nebraska. Even in Wyoming, Jackson Hole voted Kerry, and in Idaho, that looks like Pocatello.

Oo! Here we go: shades of purple by county! (via MeFi)

ooooo shiny.
Very. I like.
I'm likin' this meme. We should do it more often.
The WiP lines?

It just reminds me how many irons I have in the fire... *g*
