Sanity Injection

Injecting a dose of sanity into your day’s news and current events.

Fun for political junkies

The Los Angeles Times has got an interactive electoral map on their website that allows you to view how each state has voted in the past and then click on it to turn it red for McCain or blue for Obama, and see the effect on each candidate’s total number of electoral votes. Although some states with strong leanings are already done for you, you can change those too, if you want.

In addition to being a good tool to learn where the real battlegrounds of the campaign are likely to be and which states each candidate really needs to win, it’s just good geek fun:
