Last night President Obama won a second term by holding off the challenge of Governor Mitt Romney. This is great news because this process is finally over and we can go back to our normal lives. Gone are the endless supply of awful ads. Gone are the insufferable tweets encouraging you to vote. Gone are the annoying Facebook statuses from that "friend" you met that one time in college whose life mission is to convince you to agree with their political candidate of choice via Facebook. Gone is all the haughtiness from all corners of the interwebs. Ok, that last one is still going to be there.
And while the only candidate we endorse this year is Skip Bayless, who will soon appear on AA's Mount Rushmore after winning our own Election Day poll yesterday, a media event this big deserves some semblance of coverage from us. So, we scowered the web to come up with the best blooper reel moments from 2012 Election coverage from across the country...
Diane Sawyer is acting really weird, you guys
The biggest question of the night wasn't about the election at all. The major talking point on Twitter and elsewhere quickly became "Is Diane Sawyer drunk?" Just watch this Anchorman-esque mashup of Sawyer's weird behavior, talking slowly, leaning on her desk, and saying random things throughout the evening. Just look at poor George Stephanopoulos trying to endure this madness. WE NEED OUR MUSIC!!! (h/t @JimmyTraina)
The first stage of grief is always denial
Over at Fox News, Karl Rove was in denial that Barack Obama won Ohio and questioned his own network's call of the state, and the election, for the President. This led to chaotic scenes and the network basically eating its own live on air... (h/t Talking Points Memo)
Chris Matthews: "I'm so glad we had that storm last week..."
Wow, Wyclef Jean! No, wait... who is this guy?
Blake Burman from WSVN in Miami has no clue who this world renowned musician is standing next to him. Third time's the charm, Blake! We're not laughing at you, we're laughing with you. A+, Blake Burman.
"Barack Obama is not white"
ABC's Matthew Dowd called this 2012 election, "the last presidential race two white men run against each other." Seriously. This happened. ABC White House correspondent Jake Tapper came on the air to break... err... confirm the breaking news that Barack Obama is an African-American.

This isn’t the first time that Paulina Gretzky was spotted partying with a Barack Obama puppet. However, this time around it is far more entertaining. All you conservative nuts can calm down and relish in the fact that Paulina is on your side after the liberal false alarm back in September. Kudos to the Toronto Sun for pulling this picture from Paulina’s Instagram profile before...
Barack Obama has won re-election. So I get to say for another four years that the President of the United States of America follows me on Twitter. Here’s another Obama related factoid:

Last night, a small group of Ole Miss students decided to protest the re-election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, presumably because they are college students and have nothing but free time. Eventually, the crowd got bigger and bigger, as more bored students wanted to see what was going on, and people started yelling at one another in the way only politics makes...
The 2012 Election is upon us, and it’s time to make your vote count America. While most people will be voting for the next President of the United States between Mitt Romney and current President Barack Obama, I would like to open up some new polls for people to vote on. Imagine if your voice, the NFL fans voice mattered to coaches, Owners and General Managers of all 32 teams....
Barack Obama and Michael Jordan may have more in common than just Chicago, according to Scottie Pippen.
On Tuesday we reported that Obama spent part of his day eschewing the stress of election day by playing some basketball with Pippen in a pick-up game. By the end of the night, of course, stress wasn't part of the equation, as Obama won re-election handily (in the electoral...

Every week the tortured fans here at Cleveland Sports Torture make ill advised picks of the Browns, Buckeyes, Cavaliers, or Indians. But today I thought I'd do something different. Like make ill-informed predictions for the election. What's that, you say? I guess you probably have missed the election advertising for the past million few...
It is election day in the United States, and athletes as well as everyone else are chatting up a storm about politics. President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney spoke with Chris Berman before the Presidential election and now we have video. As if it wasn’t a surprise, President Obama feels like the Chicago Bears will be winning the Super Bowl this year.

Jeff Kent is just a normal guy — like the typical Major League Baseball ticket buyer, really. At least that’s what he’s insisted.
Millions of dollars, All-Star profile and fights with Barry Bonds aside, Kent recently participated on the newest edition of Survivor, which was always an interesting choice considering his known ornery personality from his playing days. Apparently...
Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo have got the President’s back … way back.
The two soccer stars publicly backed Barack Obama in the 2012 U.S. presidential election, according to CNN.
The incumbent Obama faces a stiff challenge from Mitt Romney as he seeks to retain the highest office in the land for four more years.
Rooney, a citizen of the U.K., was the first to pledge...
I don’t mean to imply that we couldn’t watch any sports last night. For instance, I watched the Orlando Magic at the Chicago Bulls last night. But since Barack Obama had to be such a winner and whatever last night, the Bulls had to ruin that game for me, too. I mean, Joakim Noah was knocking down jumpers and Carlos Boozer looked like he had an actual pulse.My point is that everyone...
Jon: WELCOME TO GRUDEN TALK THE TALK SHOW THAT DISCUSSES THE ISSUES OF THE DAY. AS YOU KNOW, WE GOT AN ELECTION TODAY, ISN’T THAT RIGHT BANDLEADER HERM EDWARDS?
Herm: ELECTION DAY. YOU VOTE, AND THEY COUNT THE VOTES. WHOEVER HAD THE MOST VOTES WINS.
Jon: RIGHT YOU ARE, FRIEND. NOW AS YOU KNOW THERE ARE A LOT OF POLLS OUT THERE. GALLUP. PPP. THE COACHES POLL. I’M PRETTY...

Today calls for a celebration, boys (and one occasional girl). No...not because I'm completely awesome or because Lori died giving birth to a living, breathing sin. Well, those things SHOULD be celebrated, but not today, **** faces. Today we celebrate because after today...
