News headlines are a descriptive bunch these days, and some of the rhetoric used (from both sides of the political spectrum) can be pretty extreme. I thought it would be fun to collect some of the more evocative words from headlines about the election results, and compare them to descriptions of an event that truly was extreme: Hurricane Sandy.
Google News Search was my source.
The following list of words are all from election headlines. The red italicized words also appeared in headlines about Hurricane Sandy. EERILY SIMILAR.
