The Twitterverse has seemingly enjoyed every minute of the non-filibuster Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and pals have engaged in over the past 20-some hours on the Senate floor.
Which is not to say everyone has continued hanging on Cruz’s every word.
As part of their ongoing anti-Obamacare campaign, Cruz and conservative commentators decided to punctuate their anger by appending online missives with the #MakeDCListen tag.
And while they’ve gotten plenty of traction from the rhetorical challenge, some social-media users have elected to take the taunt in much different directions, including:
