Birth of a Meme: McKayla Maroney And President Obama Aren't Impressed By
Today I came across the image above. Given that McKayla Maroney's being caught on camera making this face after she narrowly lost gold at the Olympics, I'm amazed that there has been very little backlash for her. She has become more famous for it than vilified for unsporting behavior. I mean shouldn't she be grateful? But maybe given her age and the circumstances people are willing to let her slide. I know I'm not really upset by that, and the memes it has generated have been priceless. It was a good idea for the Obama administration to capitalize on her fame.
