Fox News—according to Twitter

How would you describe Fox News's reaction to the election results? 

Call it a funeral. Call it a wake. Just don't call it anything that looks remotely fun.

Tuesday was, of course, the United States' Election Day, and across the country, the American people elected one clear winner—Barack Obama—and two decided losers in the eyes of Twitter: former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Fox News, the media network that had most firmly shown the Republican candidate its support.

The major cable news organization, long considered to have an unfettered bias towards the conservative thinkers of America, went into full-on bereavement mode Tuesday night just minutes after announcing that Barack Obama had won the 2012 presidential election, quickly scuffling for silver linings and tending to political pundit Karl Rove's outright refusal to believe that the numbers already added up.

On Twitter, liberal leaners took notice, posting their thoughts on what the Fox News consolation party looked like from the couch.

Scumbag President vs. Completely Wrong: The election in memes
The first Meme Election is coming to an end. The 2012 election will not be remembered for one “Oops” moment, but rather a series of them—gaffes and keyphrases amplified by the hivemind of the Internet. Memes aren’t a new concept, but they’re hitting the Web faster than ever as people rush to be the first to post the concept on Reddit, Tumblr, or Twitter.
