Jokesters Use Ted Cruz to Air Personal Grievances
Posted at 11:51 a.m. on Sept. 25, 2013
The Twitterverse has seemingly enjoyed every minute of the non-filibuster Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and pals have engaged in over the past 20-some hours on the Senate floor.
Which is not to say everyone has continued hanging on Cruz’s every word.
As part of their ongoing anti-Obamacare campaign, Cruz and conservative commentators decided to punctuate their anger by appending online missives with the #MakeDCListen tag.
And while they’ve gotten plenty of traction from the rhetorical challenge, some social-media users have elected to take the taunt in much different directions, including:
Drawing local battle lines,
chastising camera hogs,
petitioning for more dining options,
urging Metro to shape up,
lobbying against lingering food trends,
sticking it to the man,
promoting the arts,
denying Ben Affleck the opportunity to do any caped crusading
and, of course,
angrily pleading to make it all stop.
