Are You in Red or Blue Territory?

Have we become so politically polarized that we need a GPS program to tell is whether we're in "friendly" or "hostile" territory? I guess so, sensing from a downloadble Java applet called RED|BLUE. Designed for Blackberries and Nextel Java/GPS-enabled phones, the applet can tell you where you are in the U.S., and if that area leans Republican (red) or Democrat (blue).

The applet uses data from FundRace, a website that lets you track your neighbors' political donations.
