This Is Why I Use Red=Dem, Blue=GOP

From Kudlow's blog (not to show any disrespect) -

    Isn't it interesting that German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and his SDP/Green Coalition got clobbered in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany's most populous state. Even by using the most virulent anti-American, anti-capitalist rhetoric, Schroeder lost big in a very blue state.
Of course, in Germany the SDP is Red, the Greens are Green, the FDP is Yellow and the CDU/CSU is Black. If anything, most European countries would make conservatives blue, not social democrats like the US Democratic Party. Nordrhein-Westfalen is, if anything, a red state because it votes for the Social Democrats.
