The hashtag "Hail Obama" began trending on Twitter yesterday after a local Florida Fox reporter claimed that crowds were chanting the phrase at an appearance by the First Lady. Others in attendance say that the crowd was actually chanting "Michelle Obama." And some point out that the sports chant for Brevard Community College, the school where the First Lady appeared, is "Hail Wildcats." But whatever the truth is, that Fox reporter is now web-famous and his initial tweets have appeared across the wingnut-o-sphere. That Drudge-baiting worked.
