watercoolerWelcome back to another installment of the Watercooler, RedState's daily Open Thread! Today, we've got...

A Little Hashtag Fun

For your Trumpkin Twitter-trolling pleasure... #StubfingersGotStomped  #TedThumpedTrump   #SayNoToBiff  #Sux2BStubfingers   #TrumpTrounced   #ThumpedTheChump   #CruzMissileStrike  #HastaLaByeByeBUTTHEAD!

Yeah, I been saving that last one for a while... ever since the Donald Trump-Biff Tannen link was pointed out, actually. I just hope I'm not premature springing it... Oh heck, let's just work #Stubfingers into it any time any of us mention the #FifthAveFascist on social media and see if we can drive him into Dean Scream territory. Oh, and don't forget #WINNING, because... well, just to tweak him and his less-sober spiritual twin Charlie Sheen.
