Congress has tackled a diverse set of issues this week, from campaign-finance reform to cocaine sentencing. The Congressional Twitterverse, however, is a bit more predictable: lots of partisanship and creatively punctuated tweets. Plus Joe Wilson, John Boehner, and Donna Edwards are sarcastic, condescending, or both; Charlie Rangel masters—or muffs—timing with a tweet about cocaine around the same time that the House Ethics Subcommittee announces 13 charges against him; Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is encouraging; John McCain discusses eyeballs; and Harry Reid slams opponent Sharron Angle at every turn, er, tweet.
repdonnaedwards Senate R’s are still blocking five bills that would create at least 1.5 million jobs. Shame on them! It’s time to act.
Rep. Donna Edwards, Maryland
