The best congressional tweets of the week By Sophie Gilbert
Comments () | Published May 14, 2010
It appears there’s not one piece of news these days that our leaders can agree on. Job numbers are up … but so is unemployment. Elena Kagan is a fountain of wisdom … and an empty, inexperienced judicial vessel. Any minute now Rush Limbaugh will be lambasting about how the disastrous Gulf Coast oil spill is as natural as ocean water … Oh, yeah.

In other news, bless Mary Fallin and her Oklahoma jokes. And double bless Leonard Boswell for wearing wooden shoes at a tulip festival, which is really something people should do more often. Does Lisa Murkowski really need to win a gun? Don’t they give them away free in Alaska along with the annual $1,000 tax credits you get just for living in a giant national park? Kirsten Gillibrand is hanging out with Rachael Ray, Bob Inglis wants the US to be more like Southwest Airlines (does that include charging overweight people double?), Jason Chaffetz is Team Coco, and Mike Pence now officially speaks for the American people. All of them.
