Abstract

From “Big Bird” to “binders full of women” political memes have injected themselves into the spectacle of political discourse and political campaigns. This is particularly the case in the 2016 Presidential campaign and the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. Memes were once the stuff of /b/ boards and insider Internet culture and humor. However, memes currently occupy an emergent space within political communication, participation, and ultimately political deliberation.
