• Conservative Hashtag Games Are Ruining Twitter

    Today Former White House Press Secretary Bill Burton attempted to start a hashtag game called #RomneyYachtNames. It's so unfunny and forced, it's exactly the kind of thing that would trend on Twitter. And it did, but not the way Bill Burton intended.

    Conservatives hijacked the hashtag and soon started their own called #ObamaYachtNames. Never mind the fact that that barely makes sense. The stereotypes about Obama aren't that he's rich and owns yachts. That's Romney's thing. Obama is the elitist black liberation theology professor who eats kale with a side of dog, remember?!

    But that's not the only conservative hashtag game that's caught in this week. Just in the past few days, the ones I've seen: #MorePopularThanObamaBudget#ObamaInHistory#ObamaFirsts#LowerUnderObama,
    #ObamaBedtimeStories#HomophonesforObama. If you feel like punishing yourself, just scroll down @MichelleMalkin Twitter feed. Re-tweeting the unfunniest garbage tweets she can find is apparently a hobby of hers.

    Everyone in power deserves to be ridiculed. If that wasn't true, we'd be wasting our time with this blog (instead of just wasting your time with this blog). I don't have a problem with these hashtag games politically. I have a problem with these hashtag games comedically.

    Saying that Obama inspired you to become a poll inspector is admitting the only reason you care about voter fraud because you hate who's in office.


    No one would name their yacht "The Florida Keys" in the first place. That's just a place you visit in a yacht. The logic of this pun is seriously flawed!


    Solyndrarella is the closest thing I could find to an actually funny entry for any of these hashtags. And it's still only kind of funny.


    What does that story have to do with the other story. If you want to make fun of Elizabeth Warren, just make fun of Elizabeth Warren. You're diluting the joke by roping Obama into it.

    He's right. Liberals, hashtags rarely work in your favor and they're often hijacked by obsessive conservatives. Conservatives, please be funnier.
