And the New York Times tweeted out an image of defeated Florida gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist’s beloved fan following his concession speech.

The fan, of course, started a media firestorm during the buildup to the election when Gov. Rick Scott refused to come out and debate Crist because he had a small fan under his podium. Scott eventually caved and emerged.

As expected, the morning news shows didn’t hold back on their reactions either.

“They [the GOP] had a very good night; they did indeed catch a wave,” said “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy to open Fox’s morning show.

“Good morning  everyone, the horror show’s over,” began “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski over on MSNBC.  “How are you doing?” Joe Scarborough asked her. “I cried all night,” she joked in front of a live audience Wednesday morning.

“Here’s your headline: the USA votes GOP,” said Chris Cuomo to open CNN’s “New Day.”

Cable news is wall-to-wall Wednesday with reaction to the elections.
