Sal started off the show congratulating Robin on Obama's win: "You've been pushing this guy the whole time." Artie jokingly complained that the election's results could be the start of a horrible trend: "I got news for you. My driver's a black guy and today he was late for the first time. I was like, 'God, things change quick.'" Howard was surprised to learn that Alaska voted Ted Stevens back into office: "The guy is a felon." Gary came in with results in Al Franken's Senate race, saying Al was down by 500 votes, so there'll probably be a recount. Riley Martin then called in to report that the aliens were pleased by Obama's victory, "They told me 25 years ago that one will come. I never imagined that it would be a black man."
