By now, most people that read the new media have been informed that the infamous “hockey stick” graph supposedly proving man-made global warming is a scientific hoax of historical proportions. The data was cherry-picked and manipulated to show something that simply isn’t there. But there is a hockey stick-type graph that is very real, and it doesn’t bide well for the D. Last week, the liberal Utopia we know as Detroit, run by a Democrat hegemonic domination for 50 years now that was supposed to usher in an ago of rainbows and unicorns, was ranked dead last as the most difficult city to find a job (Liberal Utopia Detroit ranks dead last of 50 major cities as the most difficult place to find work). But that was only part of the story, as it turns out. Perhaps the bigger story is how bad things really were relative to the other 49. This graph tells that story:

2008 General Election results-DEM: 96.93% GOP: 2.65%
2006 General Election results-DEM: 95.05% GOP: 4.33%
2004 General Election results-DEM: 93.61% GOP: 5.93%
Thus, why are Detroiters not living with unicorns under rainbows running on pixie dust?
