U.S. polical graph

Ok, so everyone knows that even the most left leaning U.S. politician would be considered a raving right winger here in Europe but it still interesting to see it graphed. I have to admit I was surprised by just how far to the right many of them are.

I got the link from seeingtheforest who also have this interesting piece about the long hours Americans work - according to some Republican nut, they like it..

At a press conference today unveiling the stimulus proposal, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) justified the conservative plan to give tax breaks to corporations — instead of working Americans — by arguing that people actually like working long hours:
I am so proud to be from the state of Minnesota. We’re the workingest state in the country, and the reason why we are, we have more people that are working longer hours, we have people that are working two jobs.
