Read Red, Read Blue

Some time soon (probably over at the BellerophonChimera blog) we’ll get around to doing a brief writeup on a few of the more interesting analyses to appear in the aftermath of the recent election. In the interim, if you haven’t already checked it out, Amazon.com has an interesting little Political Book Map feature running which tracks comparative sales of “red” and “blue” books by state, and notes the top seller in each respective category. In Kansas, for example, the ratio is 59% “red books” to 41% “blue books”. In the purportedly red category, Bill O’Reilly’s A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity is the leader over the past sixty days, while the blue category is topped by Thomas Franks’ What’s the Matter With Kansas? As you might expect, Kansas is the only state in which the latter leads this category.
