  1. On Inauguration Day, all presidents will be required to publicly apologize to the French people for being cisgendered (if they are cisgendered). They will have to apologize in French.

  2. Jimmy John's V for Vendetta mask

    I think Jimmy John’s regrets their election-themed Facebook post

    Jimmy John’s sandwich shops posted this cute joke photo on their Facebook this morning:

    The commenters quickly started arguing whether it’s illegal to post these pictures (it’s a misdemeanor in some states, a felony in others, completely legal in a few). It got real stupid, real fast.

  3. Nate Silver sniffs a flower

    How Nate Silver spent the day after Election Day

    Political oracle Nate Silver shuffles into the kitchen. He pours himself an orange juice. He spits it out, there’s vodka in it, when last night did he decide to dump vodka in the orange juice carton?

    Nate squeezes an iPhone on his shoulder, that exaggerated sideways scrunch we all make now that our phones shrank but we still have things to do with our hands, and we refuse to wear a Bluetooth. Karl Rove is yelling at Nate from inside the iPhone. He’s asking Nate to run the numbers in Ohio one more time. Just to be safe. He’s reminding Nate that he (Karl) has been here before, and they made a TV movie about it, with this really embarrassing scene at the end where Al Gore calls up the guy whose memoir the movie is based on and basically gives his asshole a good tongue-licking. Nate says “It’s too early in the morning to hear you talk like this” and puts down the iPhone.

    Zazzle decides what to promote on Election Day

    “Steve, what day did you send out the election-related merchandise email newsletter?”

    “Oh, months ago! Back when it made any sense for someone to buy a design that would be rendered obsolete tomorrow! Sorry just a sec I need to go write a… thing.”

  7. Texts from Mitt Romney - Game of Thrones

    Texts From Mitt Romney 2: Election day edition

    Everyone loved my texts from Mitt Romney in September, but no one told me how to make him stop. Even when I had no cell signal after the hurricane, Mitt somehow kept reaching me. Here they are. I really hope he doesn’t get elected, or he’ll keep talking to me.

  8. Candy Crowley

    Obama and Romney sing “I Want Candy”

    This is either a commentary on the entitled nature of the President and his challenger, or a silly pun on the name of debate moderator Candy Crowley.

    Watch our stupid little song. »

  9. On foreign policy, I was impressed that both candidates knew about the attack on our embassy. This is an important issue for me, as I consider myself a bit of an expert on Liberia.
