SLAPPING THE RED STATES IN THE FACE | 2004-11-06
Looking back, we all see that the Republicans had a fit of insanity when they nominated Bob Dole for president in 1996.
In 2000 everyone looked at the political map in which there were "red states" and "blue states." The northeast and the far west were hard-left "blue states."
No one has mentioned why they didn't make the leftist states the "red states." But I think we all know.
Heartland America, what the liberals condescendingly call "flyover country," was a solid mass in favor of Bush, and they were colored red. That map was everywhere right after the 2000 election. Political pundits have talked about "red states" and "blue states" for the last four years.
Obviously if the Democrats were going to win in 2004, they had to get some "red states," heartland America.
So in 2004 they nominated a liberal from Massachusetts.
Now take a look at The REAL Reds.
