Rep. Joe Barton (TX): Aggie basketball game is about to start on espn2 for
those of you that aren't going to bother watching pelosi smirk for the next
hour.

...and then....

Rep. Joe Barton (TX): Disregard that last Tweet from a staffer.

Both of these tweets from Rep. Barton no longer appear on his profile page,
but you can still find them on Tweet Congress.

Are you upset that it's making fun of Pelosi, who can't smirk with all
that botox in her?

Grammar aside, it seems to me if one wants dignity, one should stay
away from American politics.

As long as creeps like Murtha and Frank are still in high ranking
House positions, dignity isn't something in high supply.
