Last night, after defeating presidential hopeful Mitt Romney for the presidency, Barack Obama tweeted "Four more years," and those thirteen letters racked up more than 303-thousand retweets in under forty-five minutes. At press time, it's passed 669-thousand retweets, making it the most popular tweet in the history of humanity.
A lot of people (Donald Trump, for example) felt smart enough to comment upon this election in some form. But not all of them were so annoying. Here's what some rappers had to say:
