It was a stressful and tense night, but vaginas everywhere rejoiced as President Barack Obama was re-elected for a second term. The news came around 11:10 p.m. est that he won the state of OHIO and the major news networks announced that he had won the Presidential race. He celebrated on Twitter with his official account retweeting this picture of the Prez and Michelle Obama embracing. It just so happens to be the most retweeted tweet from him, and probably of the night.
As cheers erupted from the crowd at Obama's HQ in Chicago, the speakers blasted "How You Like Me Now" by The Heavy. A perfect f*** you to Mitt Romney's campaign, if you ask me.
Speaking of Mittens, he doesn't want to concede Ohio just yet. Let it go, Mittens. LET IT GO!
Thank you, President Obama!
Air Force One and POTUS
Today is Election Day and we here at DiC hope you exercise your right to vote and "Voice Yr Choice!" The songs isn't about voting, or anything really, but we're going to pretend the line "I'm shaking up the underground/Cause I'm willing and able to break it down" is about President Barack Obama.
This track, and many others from The Go! Team's album "Rolling Blackouts" are great for an Election Day playlist.
Anything to help you survive those long voting lines.
Have I mentioned how much I love the Twitter ( I will always say it like Betty White does)? I like seeing what some of my favorite (and not so favorite) politicians, celebrities, reality TV stars, athletes, and musicians have to say.
These are my top 20 tweets from this week:
Reality TV-Love Guru Steve Ward tweeted this and, as I am prepping for a Half Marathon for this January, I will beat someone with my running shoes if they tweet or facebook something like that while I'm half-dying. Stick to tweeting about relationship train-wrecks, please.
Sophia Grace and Rosie are my queens. If you don't know who they are I need you to understand now that Sophia Grace is a vocal powerhouse, and these two little girls rock a tutu and tiara like NO OTHER. Youtube search their Tea Time with... videos and fall in love with them like all of America (and the world) has. I refuse to believe anyone other than Sophia Grace is running that twitter, I like thinking that each tweet is specially for me.
Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara was not impressed with The Parlor sports bar, I love when stars complain or endorse restaurants, it makes me feel connected to them in some weird way. If I ever find myself in need of a great sports bar in LA I'm sure I'll remember this tweet and not go there . . . because Gloria told me it's the worst.
I never thought I'd agree with anything actor Seth Rogen did or said, but his tweet about Game of Thrones expressed my sentiments about my entire viewing experience perfectly.
Comedian Rob Delaney isn't for everyone's taste...I've unfollowed him so many times on Twitter because the line don't even exist for him, but so many people retweet him that I find myself lured back into checking what he's commenting on and this time I was glad I did because Justin Bieber annoys me, and I approve this tweet.
I've yet to see the new NBC drama Revolution mostly because I feel anything post-apocalyptic will give me anxiety and start me off on hoarding spam and artillery, but this show's premise just freaked me out because without electricity I KNOW I won't be looking cute at all! Actor Rainn Wilson expressed my concerns with the pilot episode brilliantly, because...NBC, you're either giving me false hope or just being extremely cruel.
How do I describe Paris Hilton? Actress? Style Icon? Useless? Whichever, I really don't care, I just find this tweet really sweet considering that her avatar and Twitter background are of herself in lingerie- I wonder exactly what she thinks she's telling the world.
I love actor Nathan Fillion, a lot. Every little thing he does brings a smile to my face, and this simple tweet made me squee as well!
When actress Lindsay Lohan tweeted this on Monday I was grabbing my popcorn and gearing up for the retweets and gold I knew it would bring from all her crazy stans and haters alike. I had to wait until two days later for the real pay out when she was arrested for clipping a pedestrian's knee, which led to Amanda Bynes (who Lohan was referring to in said tweet) to have the final laugh, karma really is a bitch.
Ugh. I have zero patience for reality 'star' Kim Kardashian, and everything she does annoys the crap out of me- this tweet made me roll my eyes so hard because, really? You knew you were getting yourself the new iPhone so this tweet, like everything else she does, was unnecessary.
I love Director/Writer/Actor Kevin Smith; he's such a perfect fanboy; he always comes through with giving his audience what they need. This was a wonderful public service announcement, also, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches might be my kryptonite, ohmybob.
Sometimes I find myself scrolling through all of rapper Kanye West's Twitter because I try to understand his insanity, and I always fail. This tweet is only on this list because it gives me another shot at restating that I can't stand Kim Kardashian, and I don't understand this tweet either. First off, if I'm sexting my boyfriend I know good and well he doesn't give a crap about pictures of me in a dress smiling at how pretty I think my reflection is. Secondly, no one likes a braggart but if you're trying to show off your woman at least make sure the pics are somewhat interesting. You're both shallow and annoying, but I like your albums, Kanye, so you can stay.
I actually don't like when celebs have upcoming projects because their Twitters become all about promoting, which I understand, but I'd much rather have 'normal' tweets instead of promotional hashtags. However, I'm always pleased by anything that's an innuendo, and to use it to promote your upcoming movie? Well done, Justin. (His movie is out this weekend, someone tell me how much I'll ugly cry so I can be prepared, thanks!)
I like when the jokes write themselves, but I love when comedienne Joan Rivers tweets anything.
I sincerely hope actor Jonah Hill was quoting The Strokes' lyric, because if he wasn't, I'd like to cordially invite him to bite me.
I love tv host/actor Joel McHale for this tweet because everyone over here on the East Coast was tweeting similarly all this week, I felt we were all connected, and I'd like to connect with him...horizontally.
TV Host Ellen Degeneres' tweet was spot on, because I'm one of those idiot Americans currently obsessed with Gangnam Style, never mind that I have zero musical or dance-like talent, I'm all about it.
Me too, Bill Maher, me too. I was genuinely so confused about what was happening those first 3 minutes of The Office's season premiere.
Reality TV star and author Bethenny Frankel's tweet is proof positive that Twitter is a reliable news source, I didn't know this happened until I saw her tweet pop up on my newsfeed!
Last, but certainly not least, there were many important politically related tweets this week, but this was the tweet that made me cry. I love our POTUS!
Those were the tweets that entertained me this week, which were your faves not mentioned on here ( I didn't like any of Britney's tweets this week, okay, and of course I follow her!).

Listen, I fully realize that I should be a bit more refined and have some couth when it comes to discussing President Barack Obama, I really do. Sadly though, I'm still a Tiger Beat-reading 7th grade girl at heart and get all giggly over the POTUS. I can't help myself. I want to know what his favorite food is (Michelle's Shrimp Linguini!) and all of the other ridiculous bits of trivia about Mr.
Handsome President. And so do you, so don't even.
• He is left-handed – the sixth post-war president to be left-handed
• He has read every Harry Potter book
• He owns a set of red boxing gloves autographed by Muhammad Ali
• He worked in a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop as a teenager and now can't stand ice cream
• His favorite snacks are chocolate-peanut protein bars
• He ate dog meat, snake meat, and roasted grasshopper while living in Indonesia
• He can speak Spanish
• While on the campaign trail he refused to watch CNN and had sports channels on instead
• His favorite drink is black forest berry iced tea
• He promised Michelle he would quit smoking before running for president – he didn't!
• He looks pretty gosh-darned fantastic in a tuxedo!
If you're on Twitter like we are (follow us at @dippedincream), there is a hilarious trending topic right now called
#ObamaBirthdayPartyGames. I'm embarrassed to say a lot of them have made me snort out loud. Here are a few examples: #ObamaBirthdayPartyGames Pin The Fail On The Donkey
Dodge The Question Ball
#ObamaBirthdayPartyGames #ObamaBirthdayPartyGames Red Rover, Red Rover, hand your constitutional rights right over. #ObamaBirthdayPartyGames Spin the unemployment numbers #ObamaBirthdayPartyGames Duck-Duck-Cooked Goose
Strip America Bare Poker
#ObamaBirthdayPartyGames #ObamaBirthdayPartyGames Spin the Bottle With the Fawning Lame Stream Media
See? I'm actually realistic sometimes. Now I have to post my favorite video again...I just close my eyes and pretend he's cooing those soothing words to me, while I cry over the economy sitch.
Awwww c'mon, Baby...

President Obama took a little time off from the campaign trail to catch a pre-Olympic basketball exhibition game between the U.S. men's team and Brazil. He sat front row with wife Michelle and their oldest daughter Malia, and was caught off guard when he appeared on the jumbotron's kiss-cam. Instead of actually kissing, they just hugged and were met with boos from the crowd.
The second time around, they were encouraged by Malia to kiss and the Prez went for it. This time they got cheers and there were a couple of chants of "four more years!" I love the faces on the Secret Service Agents behind them. I'm sure they've seen that all before. Like any other kid, Malia looked a little embarrassed when her parents started dancing in their seats. They humiliate their kids in public, just like other parents too.
I think it's safe to say we're a little jealous of Michelle here.
