In case you missed this election season, here is a brief viral recap:
1. The first big meme (that’s fancy for something taking a life of its own online) was called Eastwooding.
To which President Obama tweeted in response, “This seat’s taken.”
2. Binders of Women. During the debates Mitt Romney mentioned he enthusiastically sought to hire women for his cabinet and in doing so received binders full of women to fill those positions. The web exploded and there were quite a few Halloween inspired costumes and postcards created as a result. (I think my favorite is the Bill Clinton one.)
4. Bayonets and Horses. In the third debate about foreign policy Romney lamented about there being fewer Navy ships now versus 1917 to which Obama responded that we have fewer bayonets and horses too. Oh snap!
5. Now make your own moment!
