Yesterday’s “Hashtags ain’t winnin’ no elections on MY watch” article stirred up the expected reaction on Twitter, with Alan Rosenblatt among others making cogent points to counter my bold declaration. But, Asher Huey wins the prize: he coined a new hashtag, #ColinDelanyIsWrong, which I shall now wear as a badge of honor (another casualty was regular contributor Beth Becker, who earned the tag #BethBeckerIsACrazyLOLcatsLady because, well, she’s a crazy LOLcats lady). Good times all around! Can’t wait until #ColinDelanyIsWrong is scrawled illegibly on fine bathroom walls across The Nation’s Capital — only then, finally, will I have Arrived.
