Obama campaign runs with Biden's 'literally' overused word on Twitter9/8/2012
While Joe Biden’s speech during the Democratic National Convention may have had some serious rhetorical mistakes, the Obama campaign is “literally” trying to make the best of the situation. After the veep went off script and used the word “literally” more than nine times in his 40-minute speech, Twitter immediately hopped on the misstep. Within minutes, #literally was trending, with assorted tweeps mocking Biden’s elementary public-speaking mistake. Rather than just moving on from Biden’s error, the Obama campaign decided to embrace it and is now sponsoring advertisements for users looking for the word “literally” on Twitter. I guess when your vice president says as many dumb things as Biden does, you just have to run with it. [Source]
Is this literally the weirdest placement for a presidential political ad ever?
