When the history books are written, it will be known that Barack Obama was the “first meme president.” What other campaign would send out mailers saying “Stop looking at cats online and go vote?” What other president would embrace one of the best running jokes of the 2012 Olympics, that gold medal gymnast McKayla Maroney is not impressed? This is amazing.
