The best 2012 election night tweets
By: Brandon Griggs and Heather Kelly CNN
Election day was filled with genuine emotions on Twitter, following months of sharp exchanges, too many jokes to count and memes. So many memes. Tuesday had its tense moments and also bursts of joy and disappointment.
[HF: I have selected my favorites]
Donald J. Trump -- He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!
Brent Black -- So a bunch of states have voted for gay marriage and legal marijuana. America is slowly learning how to party.
nascarcasm -- Colorado voted to legalize marijuana, because apparently being a mile high already just isn't quite high enough. # election2012
Kevin Roose -- Nate Silver, drunk in the newsroom later tonight: "More like FiveThirtyGREAT, AM I RIGHT?!"
Jeffrey Goldberg -- If Nate Silver is right, does this also mean that the climate is, in fact, changing, and that the earth is more than 6,000 years old?
Nate Silver -- This is probably a good time to link to my book: t.co/ 48GNWEC9
Andy Borowitz ?-- It's still early on cable news, but words have opened up a big lead over information. # Election2012 # vote2012 #election
Ryan Teague Beckwith ?-- It's so cute how they let these nonswing states vote. And CNN and everyone calls them and everything!
Justin Stangel ?-- Fox News reports: Mitt Romney 100% Obama 0% # election2012
Eric Stangel ?-- NBC just declared The Cayman Islands for Mitt Romney... # Election2012
daniel tosh -- good luck today Florida! try not to pull a "Florida"
Faux John Madden -- BREAKING: Apple Maps projecting Barack Obama to win Brazil.
