Fun with US Maps

The other day I posted about Rick Brady's concern over the USA Today Map.

He has quite a discussion going on in his comments for his post about the map. Last I checked the number was 31 :)

Now Drew at Darn Floor has linked to something that will add to the mix. University of Michigan has created all sorts of election results maps, with different colors and different size skews to represent the population density of the country.

The one relevent to the previous discussion though is the one that shades the counties based on result. You'll have to scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you see some purple.
Here was Drew's take on it:
Depending on which maps are your favorites, we're either a chaotic mess of red and blue, or one big purple blob.
