James Bond, Margaret Cho, and white people mourning Mitt Romney.
What a week it's been. An emotional rollercoaster not just for the entire country, but for the entire world. (Note: we have no way of actually backing that up; that's just our 'Mericacentric worldview kicking in.) And to that end, some of our favorite content from this, the week that was.

Obviously gloating is poor form after an election. But man does it feel good.
