Cool election maps

This site, from a Wolverine no less, has some great cartograms of the electoral map.  The interesting ones are the map with state sizes weighted by population (so you don't get that odd feeling that the red-blue divide is pretty even because McCain won more square miles than Obama did).  That and the county results are fascinating.  The country is basically little pockets of blue cities surrounded by big swathes of red small towns and rural areas. (You know, the "real America" part of America, as opposed to all of you urban communists and your lattes).
