An Eye For The Frivolous

Our “Friday Frivolity” feature of two weeks ago, Derrick Ashong, landed in the NYT today.

At a time when politics and popular culture are still in an awkward mating ritual, Mr. Ashong inadvertently tapped into the youthquake that is shaking up the campaign. While the clip could have been lost among some of the popular rubble at YouTube (“Let me see, do I watch a tutorial on health care or Tori Spelling on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’?”), Andrew Sullivan at The Atlantic blogged about it, as did Think on These Things, a political blog. Then The Economist chimed in, which led to an editor at The New York Times hearing about it and — well, you get the idea.

But look: they forgot to add CC (and my mama) to the list of amplifiers.

I’m hurt, NYT. Deeply hurt.

Thanks to Jacob Rus for sending the link over Dems-Talk!
