Tweet Beat
Pigs, oil spills, and Lady Gaga are on lawmakers’ minds this week By Sophie Gilbert
Comments () | Published June 11, 2010
Two big issues still cropping up on Twitter this week: the Gulf oil spill and immigration in Arizona. David Vitter wants President Obama to “wage it like a war.” We’re not quite sure what that means, although we always like the idea of predator drones. Nukes off the coast of Louisiana, not so much.

In other news, Kendrick Meek is making a comeback, and he has Magic Johnson and Time magazine on his side. Dana Rohrabacher is on FourSquare, Bob Inglis has a lot of pig metaphors under his belt, Peter Roskam is enjoying the White House fried chicken, and Jason Chaffetz is hanging out with the most famous Portuguese water dog in history. Jared Polis is a little scary. And we think Mark Warner is being overly optimistic (full disclosure—we’re English).
