Update… In my sincerest Gilda Radner voice, “Never mind”…. Turns out someone is pulling a fast one and just posted two election maps. The bastards.
A good time for a refresher course on the laws of internet rumors
1) If it makes the world look just like you expect it, it’s a rumor.
2) If it sounds so right it must be true, it’s a rumor.
3) If you follow the source back 3 or more links without finding the original, it’s a rumor.
and 4) If you repost it as soon as you read it without checking it, it’s a rumor.
