Scary but Addictive!

Want to spend tons of free time drilling down into interesting data, searching on your favorite causes, and worrying about the current color of your state according to FEC data? Thanks to Dave at Political Base, ConservaChick herself may not sleep tonight... Kentucky is BLUE right now! ACK!

The non-partisan folks at Political Base have plotted FEC contributions on Google maps. They do roll-ups at the metro, city and zip code level and you can also run custom searches like "ACLU" to see individual contributions across the map.

WARNING: The use of the Political Base website is not only addictive but it's a little scary! Symptoms may include sweating, anxiety, delirium, and nausea. Please consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms after spending too much time with the FEC data in the fun format provided.

Nice work, Political Base! Thanks for the heads up on this fun tool, Dave!
