  •  Love how the guy has the colors (none)
    backwards. Surely something to do with liberals=communists=reds. lol

    One of the posters had somethin interesting though. Did ACT pull out of MI???

    •  Yes, they did (none)
      ACT was so confident that Michigan was in the bag that they moved their forces to other states like Wisconsin and Iowa and Ohio.
    •  That's how we do it over here (none)
      I even saw a discussion once where someone said American news orgs used to do it red=left, blue=right, but it got switched round somehow.  

      In Britain the Tories describe themselves as "true blue conservative" and Labour party members wear a red rose and sing "The Red Flag" at the annual conference:

      Then raise the scarlet standard high
      Beneath its folds we'll live and die
      Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer
      We'll keep the red flag flying here!

      •  red/blue (none)
        I've always assumed that the red/blue switch occured because it was thought impolitic to label Dem's as "red."

        But I find myself figuring I live in a town that's so blue it's almost pink...

    •  Up until VERY recently... (none)
      that was how the states were colored.  Back in '80, I think it was Time Magazine had a story  on 'Lake Reagan,' the Blue landmass that coated the electoral map.

      Who says young people are apathetic?
