Don't look blue staters! This one looks even scarier than the state by state map.

Check out NY, PA and the states on the west coast esspecially. There also seem to be some blue streaks in the otherwise red southeast.

But I think the map shown here (http://www.princeton.edu/~rvdb/JAVA/election2004/purple_america_2004.gif) is even more accurate. This country is a lot more purple than we'd like to imagine.

The author of that piece of bull obviously knows nothing about mathematical distributions and statistics. The very vast majority of people are between 95 and 105 in IQ. A full 70% of the population is between 85-115. 16% of the population or one in six has an IQ of 115 or higher, If you killed everyone with an IQ under 90, it would not move the median IQ to 110, much less 113.

Depends on whether I'm cold or not.

I knew my state wasn't completely blue. Ha, I know where the culprits live.

I'm a red county in a blue state. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

at least you live among your people

My neighbors still have their Bush signs on their lawns. I have to drive to the city to get myself back into my glass bubble.
