story from the Maine Sunday Telegram. (It was also the lead story in the Telegram's Augusta sister paper, the Kennebec Journal.)
The nut: "While [red state/blue state] maps suggest our political differences may have a

shaped and defined American politics since long before the United States
came into existence."
(Needless to say it draws from the American Nations paradigm.)
The piece is also available via the McClatchy news wire, for any subscribing publications out there.
