The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the sheer chaos of everything in between — election night in the U.S. is a mixture of emotions for all those politically engaged, and celebrities are just like us, except (sometimes) wittier, and often with a few zillion more Twitter followers. Here are some of our favorite posts of the night, from celebs including Zooey Deschanel (a substitute for no New Girl tonight) to CNN anchor Anderson Cooper to Patricia Heaton and Bill Maher. Some are cracking jokes, others are dead serious. We’ll be updating as the night goes on, so check ’em out below and post any fun tweets you want to share in the comments!
