So I’m in full political junkie mode, watching the live stream from CNN while surfing the web looking for more SupTu (that’s how the cool kids say it) info.
The colors on CNN’s Republican Super Tuesday map floored me:
- McCain: Republican Red, the color of a patriot’s blood
- Huckabee: Pinkish (or coral as CNN called it), the kind of color you deck the guest bathroom out in, not what comes to mind when one names “Presidential colors”
- Romney: Sh*t brown. Sure, CNN called it bronze, but we can all see who they’re taking a dump on
Glad I got a screen shot of this one, as I couldn’t find the same map on their site.
[Update: So the ladytheorist tells me that I’m color blind and that Romney’s color is in fact “Rusty Red.” Still not a presidential color. What does everyone else think?]
[Update numero dos: The Daily Show ran a bit mocking all of the map colors the TV news channels used to identify SupTu candidates. I feel vindicated now. They don’t have an embed code for the color map bit, but you can check out the intro after the jump or head over to thedailyshow.com.]
