I’m not going to get into politics in this post (nor will I generally ever); I just wanted to point out a few things that I saw on the Internet on election night that made me smile :-) .

Wikipedia actually errored out when I tried to get to Barack Obama soon after it was announced he won.

I was also really surprised that Fox News had up the following picture/announcement mere minutes after all the other stations reported Obama had won (when it was still only projections). I would have thought Fox News would hold out on announcing it to their viewers until it was more sure...
