Nate Silver Creates Map of Racist Backwaters

Nate Silver (of 538 fame) made this map highlighting congressional districts in which the 2008 presidential party vote was greater than 9% different than in 2004. But what shows up is a bright red map of those places Americans overseas like to talk about least... and Arizona.

Oh yeah, and their were Riots in Tibet the other day. The only reason I noticed was because the was blocked for five minutes and I checked BBC to figure out what was going on.
