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.
Wolf Blitzer is king of the obvious

Wolf Blitzer is the master of hyping up the obvious.

"OBAMA TAKES MASSACHUSETTS!" -Wolf Blitzer, AKA Captain Obvious. #stfu
— Frankie Fredericks (@frankiefreds) November 7, 2012
Every time Wolf Blitzer says something painfully obvious… Drink! #Election2012
— Jocelyn Neptune (@JocelynNeptune) November 7, 2012
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.
@RobLowe all time fave, on the capture of Saddam "He looked like a homeless person. I guess it's fair to say he was a homeless person."

CNN's Wolf Blitzer fraying. “Florida, Florida, Florida! Can you believe what’s going on in Florida?” he asks John King. Too many Red Bulls?

@RobLowe "People are watching the results come in" #WolfRecapsTheObvious #CNN #Election

Wolf just told a reporter to "put that microphone right up to your mouth"#CNN
— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) November 7, 2012
Twitter users kept it going.
Wolf Blitzer on after-parties at respective HQs: "They're either gonna be really happy or really, really sad."

Wolf Blitzer nails audition for Captain Obvious: "A tie! It doesn't get closer than this!" #sigh

The Redaloud Decision Desk declares Wolf Blitzer “Obvious.”
— Joanne Deer (@RedAloud) November 7, 2012
If Obama wins, the Empire State Building will be blue. If Romney wins, red. And whenever Wolf Blitzer states the obvious, a hologram weeps.
— Upworthy (@Upworthy) November 6, 2012
Wolf Blitzer: "The contests we expect to be close ARE GOING TO BE CLOSE." Really, Capt. Obvious?
— Marisa Lagos (@mlagos) November 7, 2012
Wolf Blitzer again sensationalizing some obvious Blue results. One day he will try to make senior citizen bingo games exciting #election2012
— Andrew Sweet (@AndrewSweet) November 7, 2012
Wolf Blitzer: Hey commentators, I really love y'all and I'ma let you finish, but WE HAVE A MAJOR PROJECTION *proceeds to state the obvious*
— Dan Kaplan (@dkaps89) November 7, 2012
Love listening Wolf Blitzer stating the obvious. California is the largest state in the US. Thanks, Wolf.
— Julie McGregor (@pretty_bird) November 7, 2012
Wolf Blitzer:"President will have very different speech because be was re-elected" – thank you Capt. Obvious.
— Manny Rubio (@mmrubio) November 7, 2012
Blitzer states Florida is 'pretty close'. Yeah, Wolf, it's 50/50. Way to break new ground in reporting. #Obvious #Duhhh
— Darwish Chahbar (@DarwishChahbar) November 7, 2012
"Wolf states the obvious." Wolf Blitzer
— Chris Wilkey (@cawilkey1) November 7, 2012
Wolf Blitzer gets me all excited that he is going to make a big projection and then he tells me the obvious.
— Alisha Leu (@alishaleu) November 7, 2012
Gotta love how suspenseful Wolf Blitzer sounds as he calls the results of obvious non-swing states. #CNNElection #USelection
— David Ros (@david_ros) November 7, 2012
Wolf Blitzer's excitement when he states the obvious is so unnecessary. Yeah, like we really expected the POTUS to win Georgia :-/
— Jacari Davis (@PreachJD) November 7, 2012
From now on, I am going to start saying "I am going to make a major prediction" & then say something obvious. I call it the Wolf Blitzer. TM
— JSzubartowski (@jszubs) November 7, 2012
And a buzzkill.
Someone tell Wolf Blitzer to stop saying obvious shit.
— angus (@gus_master_flex) November 7, 2012
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.
— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) November 7, 2012
One thing is for sure: We can all come together to mock Captain Obvious! So, there’s that.
