Tweet Beat: The Best Congressional Tweets of the Week
Comments () | Published January 8, 2010
It’s the start of a new year in Congress, which means two things: (1) our representatives are rehashing all the mistakes of the previous year, and (2) they’re worrying about upstart pipsqueaks stealing their seats in 2010. So expect to see a lot of local pride from them in coming weeks, combined with plenty of snipes about federal spending and the occasional comment about the weather. So not much different from any other week then. Oh well.

Mad props to Leonard Boswell and Joe Wilson for starting 2010 with an air of optimism, even if Joe Wilson’s is appreciation for the fact that a televised outburst of rudeness to hundreds of millions of people worldwide provided a welcome boost in profile and campaign donations. We’ll take what we can get. And boos to John Boehner, Mike Coffman and Eric Cantor for reminding us that it’s business as usual. Randy Neugebauer has the dorkiest New Year’s Resolution we’ve ever heard, Ben Nelson is mad at Taiwan, Kirsten Gillibrand is concerned with Asian Carp and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is worried about both her kids and an unseasonal cold snap in Florida. Rob Wittman has gone back to school. And John McCain is the most popular man in the world, again.
