Whoever chose the colors to represent the Republicans and Democrats is nuts. The colors are totally inappropriate!
First, we have the Republicans, vehemently opposed to the 'red ideal'. With overtones of class struggle, revolution, communism, blood and war, a republican waving a red flag is a joke. What a strange irony that the Republicans would celebrate a wave of red sweeping across the nation.
Then there are the Democrats. The color blue, as far as I know, doesn't have any political meaning. It doesn't stand for anything.
Well, at least one of the colors doesn't fit.
