9. Exactly!! I've told my kids to picture republicans as crouching in the
corner of a closet pissing themsevles, and while they're at it they're pissing on the Constitution and The Bill of Rights.

5. As a resident of blue county in a "red state,"
I plead with you to reconsider.

Besides, my state is becoming more "red with anger at the Republicans" of late. I think.

7. "I vote blue, not yellow"
My first thought for a cryptic bumpersticker. I like your idea.

10. Actually I think it's fitting that the Consoviet states are red

11. My thoughts precisely
In fact, I made this very suggestion on my blog a short while ago. Forgive a bit of self-quotation...

"I propose a hue re-assignment. From now on, color that party yellow -- in honor of the military records established by their leaders. Not to mention their preferred brand of journalism."
