While you were getting over your Election Day hangover, the 2014 CMA Awards happened Wednesday night, and hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the show, in part, by making a bunch of political jokes.

They covered everything from the Ebola nurse speaking out about quarantine in Maine, President Obama, the White House fence jumpers and, of course, the Democrats losing the Senate, which resulted in a huge applause fromt he CMA crowd.

But it wasn't all politics, the two also poked fun at Taylor Swift's departure from country music, Renee Zellweger's face, and the nude photo scandal.

Radio Svoboda reports that Vader already holds a position as chairman of the Internet Party of Ukraine, first established in 2007, and has filed the necessary paperwork with the country's Central Election Commission to appear on the ballot in a special election to be held on May 25. He's also made the required and hefty financial deposit of 2.5 million Ukrainian hryvnia ($225,225), which suggests this is more than an irreverent prank.

What do you think about all of this? A full on prank?

Following the announcement of Obama's victory last night, one of his most outspoken critics Donald Trump had an epic public breakdown on Twitter, laying down all the cliches in the amateur's guide to internet punditry (paraphrased):

  • Ugh, Electoral College sucks.
  • Democracy is dead to me.
  • Guys, let's start a revolution.
  • This country sucks now.

In a conspicuous attempt to divert the attention, Trump subsequently removed some of his tweets and even made room for a self-promo hashtag (#TrumpCares) to boast about sending relief supplies to Hurricane-damaged areas in New York, but Salon has published screen captures of the highlights for your enragement (shown left).
