The Best (and Worst) of the Election Day Internet
Here's everything you need to know and nothing you don't about what happened on the internet on Election Day.
As a person who grew up listening to Adult Contemporary music radio stations, the Goo Goo Dolls are very important to me. I need Phoebe Bridgers, the SSRI songstress, to follow through on this promise to serenade us with her rendition of “Iris.”
My song is on!
Unfortunately, we know who he is.

Kanye being a bigger megalomaniac than career politician Biden and Hot Cheetos residue-infused shit stain Trump is too much for my fragile brain to handle.
it’s the way he didn’t vote for shit else on the ballot hshdjkgkfkfn https://t.co/umnwY8qBvk— bri (@bigshitxtalker) November 3, 2020
I’m screaming!!!! 😭

I’m stressed out by the fact that he has a new girlfriend since the last time I checked in on him at the end of 2019.
Nashwa Lina of the Muslim Rumspringa podcast is mentally at Tom Steyer dancing to Juvenile’s “Back Dat Azz Up.”
This article on election anxiety is a must read.
Some police department in Texas thought this was a good idea.
I’m super late to this, but here’s Lil Pump being introduced at a Trump rally by Trump, who mistakenly calls him Lil Pimp. This is so cursed.
Here’s a nice pick-me-up for anyone who needs it! Katy’s the author of Paris Review’s Color Story column, and has a knack for curating art that makes me feel at peace while the world burns.
A thread of calming beauty (I plan to update all day if I can). First up: a classic OKeefe that feels infinite & dreamy pic.twitter.com/PvfGMyol8H— Katy Kelleher (@KatyKelleher) November 3, 2020
Unrelated to election coverage and possibly too niche but someone wrote erotic Reply All fan fiction. 😭
I did not think I would find anything on the internet that would distract me today and then I found a 4,000 word piece of erotica about me and Alex going camping. https://t.co/M2IOurmSEY— PJ Vogt (@PJVogt) November 3, 2020
Would today be Election Day without some nightmare fuel in the form of voter suppression? No. I’m trying not to get Sad, so this video posted by Red Chapman doesn’t seem to be helping.
This woman in NYC is denied her right to vote despite arriving on time & waiting on line.— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) November 2, 2020
It happened while the NYPD let MAGA shut down bridges & cause traffic jams.
The kids are alright! Honestly, Gen Z are the only reason today is bearable. 10/10 content.
I wish we could actually elect Fuckboy Biden. I want him to be president. That would be fun!
Not sure if this is in response to the Kunta Kinte tweet from earlier by Olbermann (see below), but if it is, Levar Burton’s choosing chaos today!
This is old, but I just saw this. Here’s a video of Patti Smith busking for NYC voters! It totally makes me feel better about the election, however temporary that “better” feeling is!!! UGH!!
Continuing with the theme of celebrity cringe, Madonna and Common are doing a lot today! Common’s trying to get the vote out, as is Madonna, but it’s become fodder for Twitter of course. I think it’s because we’re not all taking such immense pride in the act of voting today, or in Biden. Maybe some of you are, though? @ me and tell me if you don’t find this funny. LOL.
To be honest, @JoeBiden made mistakes like any other human being. But I still believe he cares and we've all made bad decisions. He has the leadership qualities to get the country going in a better direction. https://t.co/a87Bj24hY0— COMMON (@common) November 2, 2020
Hillary gonna Snatch that Presidency so Watch out!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸She's A GIRL GONE WILD!💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🎉🎉🎉 pic.twitter.com/vIPjIwDm8E— Madonna (@Madonna) October 12, 2016
This (since-deleted) tweet was outlandish, and took up too much time and energy in my life this morning! I’m not sure what Keith Olbermann means, but it’s provocative!
