Hell hath no fury like a lover scorned...

Hell hath no fury like a lover scorned...

Chicago Tribune: Has a handy-dandy slideshow of newspaper front pages from across the country on this historic day.  Very cool.

Newspapers: Speaking of the dailies, you better a copy of yours while they’re are still some left.  Newspapers are selling ridiculously fast as everyone wants a momento from this historic occasion.

U.S. News & World Report: It’s officially a trend.  The iconic mag is going monthly.  This comes just months after switching from weekly to bi-weekly.  Sigh.

The White House: If the lives of past First Families are any indication, Obama’s kids can look forward to some awesome perks for living in the White House.  Not to mention a new puppy!

Election Laws: Did you know Obama’s grandmother’s vote will still count even though she passed away the other day?  Not to sound cold-hearted, but we don’t know how we feel about that.

Gay Marriage: While a court battle could be in the future, it looks like Californians have successfully passed Proposition 8, banning gay marriage.  The discrimination is ironic considering Obama’s accomplishment yesterday.  Here’s hoping one day we conquer this, too, and have a gay man or woman as president.

Madonna: It’s okay if you chose to go Madge’s concert last night rather than watch election results at home.  She kept the audience informed with choice lines like “this is a motherfucking important evening!.”

Taylor Swift: Used MySpace to call out ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas on his immature break-up tactic: doing it over the phone!  Ah, the trials and tribulations of young love in the age of the internet!

Michael Crichton: The Jurassic Park author died yesterday at age 66.  The death comes as a surprise, despite the Emmy winner’s battle with cancer.  He’s also responsible for the creation of ER.

The View: This was THEE post-election show to tune into.  Our award for best reaction goes to Sherri Shepherd.  Very emotional. Funniest reaction?  Whoopi predicting there will be lots of, um, whoopee in the White House!
