Another reason to love Twitter

Wasn’t there an episode of Seinfeld where the sleazy ambulance chasing lawyer paradied the OJ trial and berated Kramer for allowing the defense to get ahold of a key piece of evidence? Something similar happened with the 37th appeal of Obamacare and House GOP loudmouths on Twitter today. My colleagues at Daily Kos grabbed a few of the tweets in response:

Since the House was already wasting $1.45 million today repealing Obamcare (that’s for a grand total of $54 million on 37 votes), apparently Rep. Darrell Issa decided to waste some time on Twitter, too. So he posted the above tweet.

You can probably guess what happened next.

And, finally, some good advice.
