I guess, although Republican electoral shenanigans (Canuck letter, anyone?) played a big part in that election's outcome, too.

At this point, the ship is sinking.

Not much more he can do, other than scuttle it.

Don't worry, Paraguay still has no extradition treaty, Red Bushies!

Ben, SD's population was about the same then, but as a proportion of the US whole it was much larger, since the country was about 100 million people lighter. Notice that NY and even PA have more votes than TX at that time.

McCain's map won't look like this, since even in a landslide he'll win the Deep South and Texas. Hilariously, he could conceivably lose AZ, which would make me very happy.

Game over.

In fairness, McGovern was unpopular and in trouble regardless of his choice of VP. He would have lost anyway, even if he'd have picked an ideal VP as his first choice. Perhaps not that badly, and the scandal certainly didn't help, but he didn't loose solely based on botching his VP choice.

Meg Whitman is a total bullshit artist and liar. she raped her stockholders with her "500,000 people making a living off Ebay" baloney. Typical Republican lying scum.

Actually, Fnarf, I was one of those shareholders - but I sold the stock before that, once I saw the internal numbers.

Republicans - they just like to rape investors and force them to bear their unwanted spawn of satan.
