The Internet Is Now In Charge of the Debt Ceiling
Americans are pretty much just sitting around eating Cheetos, waiting for the government to be raptured or whatever, and trying to get the disgusting image of Boehner's leaky blue eyes out of their recent memories. But hey, Obama wants you to know that you should not lose hope (ha ha HOPE, remember that thing?) because there is still Twitter.
Enter #compromise, the Obama 2012's latest attempt to turn Republicans in Congress from stubborn partisans into handshaking legislators.
Obama himself tweeted the call via his campaign twitter account, @BarackObama, Friday.
"The time for putting party first is over," he wrote. "If you want to see a bipartisan #compromise, let Congress know. Call. Email. Tweet."
Ladies and gentlemen, democracy at work. If all of your thoughts can be summarized in a few semi-coherent sentence fragments, congratulations, you are now in charge. [TPMDC]
