From Matt Damon dressing up dogs in matching Obama T-shirts to Sarah Silverman’s unforgettable “Great Schlep” video, it seems like just about every celebrity has been extraordinarily outspoken on the U.S. election (even if it’s to say absolutely nothing at all!)

And it’s a safe bet that just about every celebrity going to have something to say about the election results. To tide you over, we’ve cobbled together a few early celebrity reactions, either spoken or blogged, to last night’s historic victory for Barack Obama.
