You know, all this stuff about red states and blue states: none of them are all red or all blue. They're all about half red and half blue (with some variation, of course). (But it *is* interesting to note how, if you look at a county-by-county map, the blue is more prevalent in the high population density -- urban -- areas...) So color America in shades and hues of purple.
ADDENDUM: Oops! Unconscious plagiarism. Must give credit where credit is due: this idea comes via boingboing's post called "Purple Haze," leading to a blogger named Jeff Culver who made a lovely purple electoral map. Huzzah and kudos to Mr. Culver.
