Red State/Blue State Redux

Here is a religious twist on the red state - blue state meme, shown in the low-resolution image to the left. I grew up in a mostly tan state (Idaho), but in one of the blue counties. Now I live in a blue county in Florida, immediately south of a sea of red counties and states (the whole of the South, essentially).

Federal law prohibits religious tests in our electoral system, but that hasn't stopped a bunch of people from publicly stating quite recently that they would never elect a "tan candidate" like Mitt Romney for president of the US. Pretty much the same things were said about those blue Kennedies, once upon a time. Some things don't change.
