I saw so many misspellings of rogue vs rouge all over the internet, that I 
have trouble figuring out whether any english-speaker is making a joke or 
not. However, I'm quite certain very many people would miss the joke 
entirely, if there is one...

In much of Canadian politics, it's the other way around : red corresponds 
to what would be called "democrats" in the USA. (There even used to be a 
"Parti Rouge" like that, spelled like that), and there are multiple 
"blue"-coloured parties with completely different opinions. Also, "red" 
has been the colour of the USSR flag and of the PRC, so, it has communist 
overtones... but the flag of Canada is quite red too. So, there are plenty 
of ambiguous jokes one can make with the colours. I think that party 
colour jokes are not very "in" at the moment.
