We Got The Blues

Chris Bowers, on the Direct Democracy site, has posted an interesting graphic analysis of Bush's approval/disapproval ratings. Remember all those red and blue maps around the time of Presidential elections? Here's a state-by-state map:

The county-by-county map is a little less cruel, and likely more accurate. Note that this says very little about the 2006 midterm elections, or even the 2008 campaign. Disapproval of Bush does not imply some kind of progressive sweep; after all, as some commenters on Bower's posting noted, part of Bush's trouble is that he's lost support among the seriously whacked-out portion of his base. He's not fascist enough for them.
