GOPers Ruin Beloved Internet Meme
This time around, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) took a shot at Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), his 2014 Senate opponent, with this take on the "doge" meme.

Good job, Congress. You created only 65 laws this year and cost the country $24 billion due to the shutdown, but at least you succeeded in killing one of the internet's favorite memes!
This is hardly the first time an elected official has used a meme to make a political message. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) posted a cat-themed listicle in October while taking a swing at Obamacare's error-plagued website.
