Ross Douthot touches on a peeve of mine. Every four years the networks would have red and blue maps and alternate between the parties every year. Then in 2000 the famous map became a cause celebre, the year Republicans were Red.
Conservatives are not Red. They are Blue, or in Russia, White.
Compare. True Blue. Red October. Blue Hawaii Red Dawn. Get it?
Extra points for anyone who knows why Blue Hawaii is conservative.
