    Only in America (5.00 / 1) (#1)

    Earlier today, the President of the United States and the holder of the highest office in the land, Barack Obama, debuted the first, official Twitter account run by the President and the President alone. Because of how the internet works, hundreds of people immediately asked the President to please sit on my face, daddy. And because of how the Presidential Records Act works, every single one of those tweets, from "spank me" to "fist me," is getting filed away in the official White House archives.

    we don't get the government we deserve.  

    I'm all for clowning politicians, but is a better class of clown to much to ask for?

    often scared children. Now,  thinking adults are scared by  clowns.  These Republicans are guilty of clown libel.

    ...but do we really need to archive every idiot tweet.  Seriously.

    Not to mention the redundancy... (none / 0) (#6)

    it's the internet, it's archived automatically I believe.  There is no delete!  And the NSA archives of course.  

    Slaves to "the rules", whether they make sense or not.
