Pungent

The problem with getting so many tweets on Twitter (hold your comments for a moment, please) can be that you miss a lot of the periodic good stuff for the dross.

Had missed, for example, Representative Earl Blumenauer‘s tweets about this weekend’s health care voting activity.

There was “Trial Lawyers are the only group the Republicans dislike more than immigrants!”

And notably (h/t to Talking Points Memo) this: “I wonder if Michele Bachmann wearing a lei (on the Floor) means she has recognized that Hawaii is a state and President Obama is a citizen?”

The House vote on the House health care bill, by the way, seems to be nearly partisan but not totally. All the Northwest Republicans voted against, and all the Northwest Democrats for, except for two nays: Representatives Brian Baird of Washington and Walt Minnick of Idaho. The latter not at all a surprise, the former a little more so.
