No Red States, No Blue States, Only Obama States [Updated]

    The Obama campaign at @BarackObama just tweeted the following:

    A lovely, bipartisan, can't-we-all-get-along, feel-good tweet, no?  However, clicking on the link takes you directly to the Barack Obama campaign web store and the following items:

That's right, no red states, no blue states.  In fact, no states at all!  Just the traditional blue field and white stars (what was Betsy Ross thinking, anyway?) replaced with the ubiquitous Obama O!  At least the red and white stripes are retained, although two of each are missing.  I wonder which of the four original colonies went for McCain in 2008?  Just when you think the Obama campaign has reached the peak of self-aggrandizement, it goes and demonstrates there are higher heights to climb.

UPDATE: By the way, the last time the campaign used this "No red states, no blue states, only the United States" slogan, they tweeted an image of the President superimposed over a map of the country. Apparently they thought better of it, because the photo disappeared from the tweet.  However, the image lives on, where else?  In the campaign store on a shirt!
