Last Word on 2008 Electoral Maps

The presidential electoral season brought so many interesting variations of the electoral map, I have resisted the urge to post them all here. So, as a goodbye to the 2008 election, I'll just post these two.

Interesting that the only countries that went for McCain are ones who have first hand experience with despotic, tyrannical rulers. My impression would be that they felt more secure with McCain in the White House. Iraq and Cube for McCain. Better not let that get out!

Just like here Repub's win huge, empty geographic areas making their support look like more than it is. Well I guess Congo at least has a lot of people. I do wonder about Iraq though - do they want us to stay there for another 50-100 years?
