Colbert launches ‘vicious personal attack’ Twitter meme to ‘help’ GOP
In his victory speech in Florida Tuesday night, Mitt Romney said that while some may say that a long, bloody primary battle weakens the Republican Party, he believes that it prepares them for the general election battle to come. On Wednesday’s The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert agreed, and presented a way that we can all pitch in and help the GOP prepare its candidate.
He announced that he’s creating the hash-tag #preparethem as a venue for “vicious personal attacks” on the Republican candidates. For instance, he said, you could say something like the only person who could vote for Newt Gingrich would have to be someone who has been in a coma for twenty years. Of course, if that were the case, then Newt would probably have divorced you. Or “Mitt Romney is not a vulture capitalist. Vultures only eat things that are dead.”
