Social Buzz: Blame it on the Koch brothers
I had no idea who the Koch brothers were until today – because I abhor politics – and I still don’t know much. We had this Bill Minor column about them in today’s Journal, and here’s a Washington Post piece on them.
It’s apparently a very serious issue, but of course Twitter has done what it does best and found a way to humorize it. (I think I just made up that word, which journalists are allowed to do.)
The hashtag #KochBrothersAreAlsotoBlameFor has started trending, and while it’s way too long of a hashtag, it’s produced some funny comments. A sampling below.

Here’s a question for you: Does Bill Minor know about this hashtag? Does he even know what a hashtag is? Does he even know about Twitter? I shouldn’t make fun of old people, but I just did. Sorry, not sorry.
