The Twitter Revolution

Carpetbagger has a post about how Republicans released a four page healthcare plan that seems to have excluded their actual plan; failing to mention how much it would cost, how they'd pay for it, or what they'd do about the uninsured.  And he mentions this is the context of the budgetless budget Republicans released on April 1; for which they were widely panned.

But I thought that was terribly unfair.  After all, Congressional Republicans are an oppressed minority who are prevented from effectively communicating their policy agenda due to death threats and a blackout by the state-controlled media. And so for them to have relayed a full four pages of information to us via Twitter is really quite amazing. I understand they used complete sentences and everything. Very impressive.  

Dissidents of the world unite; one sentence fragment at a time!
