This blue state ribbon icon used to sit on the front page of Hollywood Elsewhere. It was hatched in the wake of the 2004 election (i.e., when HE was only three months old), and then it went away Brian Walker‘s latest re-design. I’m not trying to put it back or anything. It’s emblematic of the pre-teabagger, pre-Palin Bush administration aughts, and you can’t go home again. I accept that.
