What does DC stand for? it's one of those tiny states I can't remember the name of.

Also....Why do Americans always do things the opposite to everywhere else?
---from the Wiki page:
"The choice of colors in this divide is counter-intuitive to many international observers, as throughout the world, red is commonly the designated color for parties representing labor, socialist, communist, and/or liberal interests,[12] [13] which in the United States would be more closely correlated with the Democratic Party. Similarly, blue is used in these countries to depict conservative parties which in the case of the United States would be a color more suitable for the Republicans."

District of Columbia. It's not a state at all. It's where all our national clownshoes collect to talk about how much they're going to screw us.

Hmm... according to that box in your map of 1984 there are 51 regions... so without DC that's 50 states.... Is that correct?

Also how isn't that state West of Kansas called Columbia?... if so why is DC so far away from it?

 

Edit.. Nevermind, there isn't even a state called Columbia? so how come there is a Columbian flag? was it a state in the past?

And the Union Flag (UK) is still in the corner of Hawaii's flag.

Exactly. DC is not a state so there are 51 voting parties on that map.

Not sure what you mean about west of Kansas... That's Colorado. If you're talking about that other red state, it's Minnesota. That was the home of Mondale, the Democratic nominee in 1984.

TWR, are you being serious? DC is Washington DC, the nation's capital!

and rocketpig, Nebraska is NORTH of Kansas, not west. That would be Colorado. edit: you edited your post! :-p

Nebraska is North of Kansas.... I was asking about the "CO" because I thought it stood for Columbia, but it's Colorado.

Yeah, I typed Nebraska and meant Colorado. For some reason, I was thinking Iowa was in Kansas' place and vice versa.

Pretty sad because I just drove through that area two months ago. I guess that tells you what I think of that region of the United States.

Well I am sorry for assuming Washinton was in the state of Washinton, but instead you eejits put the State hundreds of miles away on the West coast. (I knew where Washinton DC was, but I assumed the state was also in the East.)

Welcome to America. We like to name everything we can after Washington.

The EC map from 2000 will be the most similar to the EC map of 2008. The only difference I am prepared to make as of now is Ohio. I foresee Obama winning the popular vote, but the EC is a toss-up. I predict Obama will win, but the possibility of Obama winning the popular vote and losing the EC is real. I think people are overestimating the Barr factor. He will not cost McCain any states. I believe Virginia, Colorado and Ohio will be the states to watch this election.



2000 is probably the closest, I agree.

Ones that could go to Obama:

Ohio (too close to call)
Virginia (too close to call)
Florida
Colorado (I predict yes)
Nevada (I predict yes)
Montana
Both Dakotas
New Hampshire (I predict yes)
maybe Missouri



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson
