If you hand people the technology to morph maps to try to better represent the results of elections, you can wind up with maps like these.
I have a cold and I haven't had my morning cup of tea yet. Tell me, should I be laughing, crying, or studying these things for my edification? I'm not quite sure...
One thing they don't do, of course, is take into account that a whole lot of people don't vote for a party, but for one actual, real person candidate versus another. (Imagine that. People might vote mixed ticket if given a reason? What a shock! They care who runs? Stop the presses!)
Anyway, I thought some of you might find the maps interesting. I did, for all my joking.
