Heh. As Twitchy has reported, actor Rob Lowe holds lapdog feet to the fire. He often does so with good-natured ribbing. Last night was no exception. He joined other Twitter users in relieving some election night stress by mocking Wolf Blitzer and his trademark Captain Obvious commentary.

Oh, dear! She must have gotten totally trashed.
Rob Lowe helped get the ball rolling with his own Wolf Blitzer “Recap of the obvious” tweet, and then retweeted these.
Twitter users kept it going.

If Obama wins, the Empire State Building will be blue. If Romney wins, red. And whenever Wolf Blitzer states the obvious, a hologram weeps.—

Wolf Blitzer gets me all excited that he is going to make a big projection and then he tells me the obvious.—

Wolf Blitzer's excitement when he states the obvious is so unnecessary. Yeah, like we really expected the POTUS to win Georgia :-/—

Come, now: What fun would that have been?
Rob Lowe wrapped up his election night tweeting with a gracious thought.
Now we come together. It is time for our leaders to lead. We will do our part, if they will do theirs.—

One thing is for sure: We can all come together to mock Captain Obvious! So, there’s that.
