I will take credit for the “Everybody Be Like BuzzFeed” mania sweeping politics, with my post Do not underestimate BuzzFeed Politics, which ran on February 6, 2013.
I pushed the mania into overdrive when I mentioned the word … (shhhh)
Has BuzzFeed peaked already?
Sign No. 1
House Republicans …
may be copying BuzzFeed.
Even if not, people are speculating about it.
Remember when little old ladies went heavy into telecom stocks in 1999, and people quit their jobs to become house flippers in Vegas and Phoenix in 2004?
Signs Nos. 2-5
No need to pile on. See Sign No. 1.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I wanna play, too! More signs BuzzFeed may have peaked:
Something in the air….

I am not sure why (or if) NRCC believes in Buzzfeed strategies. I cannot speak for other conservative political junkies who visit sites like LI, but I have never knowingly visited Buzzfeed since the day that I found out that ex-Politico writer Ben Smith was “in charge.”

That sounds like the Facebook (and maybe Twitter) crowd – but that ain’t me. Does the NRCC want votes or website hits?
Was Ben Smith one of those
[…] As usual, William Jacobson was way ahead of the curve. […]
Word up! (Cameo gets credit for that one, a long time ago):
What we need now is to raise the word “DOWNWORTHY” to the level of Obama’s policies.
Political morons — literally.
We have got to get rid of these hacks. Anyone not passionately on board about doing so cannot complain about what comes.
So Prof, tell us how you really feel….
