    No, I'm making fun of the people who are posting the map that ignores population centers.

    To a degree yes. It's more of a mockery on the land > people argument that is coming out. Basically people posting the map that ignores population are saying that people don't actually matter. It's stupid and it deserves to be mocked.

    Well, I haven't seen any Obama backers post those maps. And not everyone who backed Romney is posting those maps. So logically, it would conclude that I was talking purely about Romney backers who were posting those maps. Fisher is trying (and failing) to move the discussion away from the idiots arguing Land > People to some pathetic illusion that I'm attacking all Republicans.

    Dirtbag politicians come in all stripes, but always flaunting red, white, and blue and whatever political faction they have snookered. Does that make them Republicans? Not necessarily, could be any party. It's more like a gender, you know, dirt bags.

    Seems the GOP will DO ANYTHING to do an end run around losing the popular and electoral vote...this is really funny and pathetic at the same time....

    Electoral map


    Electoral map normalized by population:

    As long as we are going full blown hackery...I REALLY like this map...

    Talk about a landslide...
