In today’s EOD roundup, it is clear that the GOP’s message of respect for women and family values were absorbed by Mitt Romney’s former intern: Adam Savader, 21, is accused of stalking fifteen women in the last year and extorting them for nude pictures.

“I [remember] walking into work very proud, and my “I voted”sticker on, went on [the set of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch] for rehearsals, and everyone was like ‘Oh! You voted! Who’d you vote for?’ and I said, ‘Dole!’ and oh my gosh, I learned a lesson that day.”

It was a girl power-heavy episode of Saturday Night Live this weekend, with Anne Hathaway hosting to promote Les Misérables and Rihanna performing in her finest repurposed camouflage fatigues. And it was pretty good — one of the strongest episodes all season, thanks to Hathaway’s commitment, the bizarre green screen effects of Rihanna’s set, and newcomers Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Kate McKinnon dominating the night. It was awesome to see all of those new ladies in the cast killing it in sketch after sketch. There was a special place in my heart, however, for this week’s cold open, which featured Romney on the balcony drowning his election sorrows in milk.

We won’t miss much about the 2012 election cycle, but we’ll definitely be sad to see fewer political memes on the Internets. Here are a few of our favorites from this long-winded, oft-uninspiring election.

With close poll numbers mere days before the election, GOP contender Mitt Romney and rival Barack Obama need all the support they can get, so our president may appreciate singer Barbra Streisand’s new video endorsement for him.

For anyone that remotely pays attention to tabloid journalism, Gloria Allred is an iconoclast, and she’s making the rounds again as Maureen Sullivan’s lawyer, whose claim to fame is being the ex-wife of Staples honcho Tom Stemberg. Sullivan is still locked in a legal battle with Stemberg after 25 years and a nasty divorce, and now she’s looking to lift a gag order that’s in connection with testimony from Mitt Romney during their divorce proceedings. Juicy!

Well, it’s over. Not the election, certainly, but the next two weeks will be like a piece of cake now that we’re finished with the lengthy, exhausting and frequently frustrating presidential and vice-presidential debates. Now that those are done, the process of reflection (and detoxing from all of those debate drinking games) can begin. Here are ten women-centric moments from the three presidential debates and the vice-presidential debate that made us laugh, cringe, cheer and scratch our heads.

Binders, Big Bird, and now teachers. These are the things that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney hearts. At the final debate, the former Massachusetts governor confessed he has a soft spot for educators, to which moderator Bob Schieffer aptly responded, “I think we all love teachers.” Oh no he didn’t! But because Schieffer was dead on and Halloween is around the corner, here are a few teacher costumes Romney would totally love.

You guys, we’re almost done. After this evening, we will be free from any obligation to sit in front of our televisions, yelling impotently at the screen every time each candidate gets a question and uses it as an opportunity to talk about something that is only tangentially related to the original question at hand — for the next few years, anyway. We’re about to get our lives back! But before we do, there’s one more debate to get through. Thank goodness our friends at Nerdwallet have our backs.
