Republicans have been getting their news from clowns for years
As @LOLGOP, I try to use GOP tactics to mock the GOP and GOP tactics. Basically I’m an enraged, ranting megalomaniac—at least on Twitter.
Over 60,000 fine Twitter users follow LOLGOP. That’s more than follow the corporate sponsors of the tea party movement @FreedomWorks and four-times more than a likely VP nominee, former Bush Administration spokesmodel @RobPortman.
I have thank the GOP—Mitt, Santorum, Newt, Trump, Rick Perry, Bachmann and Palin, especially. Their seriously scary policies and personalities are so easy to LOL at.
But we cannot stop now. 2012 is too important. It’s make-or-break/ shit-or-get-off-the-bedpan/ Hammertime. The fate of our recovery, women’s rights, the receding tide of war and health care for 30,000,000 Americans are on the ballot in November.
The GOP is spending millions on online microtargeting in places like Wisconsin because no one has any idea how much social media will impact this election.
The GOP has made voting more difficult. They have a 24-hour-a-day propaganda channel attacking the President and BILLIONS to spend. Online registering and organizing may be our only way to fight back against these Rove-advised, Koch-funded Goliaths. Now is the time to send a message to the Kochs-that-be.
Here’s where you come in.
@LOLGOP is less than 30,000 followers behind the actual @GOP. The Republican Party itself only has 1/3 more Twitter followers than @LOLGOP. And I’ll be honest: they aren’t even being funny on purpose.
We must do this for one reason. Simply: It would be hilarious.
If you help me pass the @GOP, I promise I will abuse my power. I’ll tweet bad Koch and Boehner jokes, overly earnest policy statements and links to essential news and voting resources.
All you have to do is to tweet, Facebook, Pinterest or Yahoo “Follow @LOLGOP” at least once. It’s the least you can do for all the LOLs the GOP has given you. You may get some grief from your followers who still don’t know Alex P. Keaton wasn’t a real person. I say it’s worth it! (But, of course, that’s easy for me to say.)
If you do tweet, link it below and I’ll try to RT if that isn’t too obnoxious.
