Could we stop with the satire for a while?

In the last five minutes I have seen several "Joe the Plumber is Dead" posts and a "Romney wins Ohio Post". Tomorrow is going to be a long day followed by a long night. People are always on edge at these times. Let's respect our fellow DU'er's and resist the temptation of posting misleading and satirical stuff until we can all celebrate on Wednesday. People will be coming to DU get the news tomorrow night especially and the last thing they need is to see a bunch of "gotcha" posts.

4. I think it's some sort of post-modern satire.

Which I don't get at all.

6. Joe the plumber posts need to go away. Those are just evil.

Marcy Kaptur would not appreciate them, to say the very least.

22. I love satire too

My point was that tomorrow would be a great time for lots of satire and snarkiness, especially directed at RMoney and the Freetards.
