          Evidently not where hurricanes and earthquakes happen.

            I have always thought showing this map is so funny?
            What does it mean?
            Yeah there is a lot more fucking red?
            But it has nothing to do with the numbers of people who voted, just where they live.

            Hell there is a lot of red there, but the president is under 50% in just about every poll on every issue.

                A couple in Nevada look bigger than Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

                    A much better map I've seen blends colors smoothly based on the fraction of voters that voted Blue (0,0,255) and Red (255,0,0). So if a county went 51-49 Red, the color would be nearly pure purple, very slightly reddish; if it went 51-49 Blue, the color would likewise be almost pure purple, very slightly bluish.

                    The map was amusing because even the very bluest and reddest areas were still overall, pretty damn purple. When you look at a map like that, you realize that the country as a whole isn't very divided at all.

                      Yeah I was thinking along those lines too.
                      I mean Bush won, and he won "big" but come on, what 51, 52%. And people said mandate?
                      Hell one state goes the other way and he loses and it's a Mandate?


                      (all except for Kansas, I bet that state is red, and is pissed about that blue dot) [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

                        Hey, I'm more pissed about the blue dots that are Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties in California.

                        A mandate is what you make of it. And if Bush thought he could use his mandate to reform social security, well, more power to him. That was a noble goal, even if it wasn't going to happen simply because verything that he does for the rest of his presidency is going to be bitterly opposed even if it's to declare he approves of motherhood, apple pie, and baseball.

                          A minor point, but one thing I have always heard Democrats say is Bush won but it wasn't a mandate. People continue to misuse the term mandate. A mandate is instruction or authority given or conferred. If any president wins by one vote, he/she has a mandate. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

                              Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.
