RUSH: I’m thinking of some of the great hashtag campaigns of the past. Imagine if Twitter had been around during the Civil War. Can you imagine Abe Lincoln from the White House, #FreeTheSlaves. How about McKinley? #SpainOutOfCuba. How about Reagan? #TearDownThisWall. How about George H. W. Bush? #GetOutOfKuwait. I don’t even know what Clinton’s hashtag would be.
Clinton didn’t even take on anything big. (interruption) Yeah, Clinton #HaveACigar, #BeCarefulTheDress, #WhatBlueDress. That would be it: #WhatBlueDress. Even the AP asks, “Can a Hashtag Offer Any Help to Abducted Girls,” and here’s how it starts. I can’t believe this is the AP. “Parents of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls are hoping for a miracle. So far, all they have is a hashtag.” (Gasp!) Even AP.
