Yeah, looks like Twitter’s gonna be real nasty tonight.

Not the vote results themselves, but the reactions to them. You know something? I’ve decided that I don’t particularly need to read ’em. Masochism ain’t my thing.


Puerto Rican voters call for statehood! …Mostly. Sort of. Not really at all, actually.

Amidst the ballyhoo of the Presidential election came this bit of contradiction:

Puerto Rico wants to become the 51st state of the US

Voters in Puerto Rico have supported a non-binding referendum to become a full US state.

…and this:

…Tuesday’s vote comes with an asterisk and an imposing political reality: The island remains bitterly divided over its relationship to the United States and many question the validity of this week’s referendum.

Nearly a half million voters chose to leave a portion of the ballot blank. And voters also ousted the pro-statehood governor, eliminating one of the main advocates for a cause that would need the approval of the U.S. Congress.
