RED, BLUE, AND GRAY....Historian Ralph Luker notes that the electoral college map of the 2004 election rather eerily matches the electoral college map of the 1896 election.

Maybe. But non-historian Ken Layne points out that it rather eerily matches the map below from 1860. That is eerie!

(Am I violating my own advice to dial down the mockery? Yeah, maybe. You could probably sue me if it weren't a weekend. Anyway, I'm doing a helluva lot better than Ken!)
