The Great Animated GIF War Of 2013
It all started when BuzzFeed published a piece full of funny animated GIFS about the things Obama is doing that would make liberals go crazy if George W. Bush had done them.
I’m not a huge fan of BuzzFeed but I have to admit…
Anyway, that post angered Josh Marshall of the left wing site Talking Points Memo. Josh was so ticked off he got into a Twitter flame war with BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith (who’s also a leftist) and even accused Smith of racism.
Once the war was over, JohnE. of AOSHQ, posted a new animated GIF piece summing it all up.
Be sure to read all the posts linked above entirely or you won’t get the full effect.
Someday, when someone brings up the Great Animated GIF War of 2013, you’ll be able to say…
I was there.
