The Conservative Lineup for the 2012 Presidential Election
I love this. It is a graph by Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com, showing all of the (known) potential candidates for President on the Republican side of the aisle for 2012. The graph is divided in quadrants, with varying degrees of "insider" or "outsider" on one axis, and "conservative" or "moderate" on the other. Note where Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann fall on the scale. And also note the heavy quotient of whack-a-doodles and no-way-in-hell-they'd-ever-wins.
