Social nets wrap: Thompson, Issa and others poke fun on a Friday
Darrell Issa (Rep. D-Calif.): FRIDAY FUNNY: today, Politico ... called Rep. Issa a "subpoena machine." What would a real-life subpoena machine look like? What kind of fuel would it take? Take it away, Friday Facebookers!
Issa's followers' responses:
Amanda Towry: Like Congress.Tom McGovern: I'm guessing it would look a little like a dirigible powered exclusively by hot air, judging by the legislative behavior of most of your colleagues.
Rob Lockwood: It would look [like] the offspring of jabba the hut and a fax machine.
Fred Thompson (Former GOP presidential candidate): BP CEO Tony Hayward's congressional testimony was interrupted by a protester screaming "you need to go to jail" That was just uncalled for. Not EVERY Congressman deserves to go to jail.RepMikeCoffman (Rep. R-Colo): Caught our second mouse of the 111th Congress in my D.C. office today.
Rick Lazio (GOP candidate for N.Y. governor): CUOMO ON THE ISSUES: Check out today's Editoral Cartoon in the NY Daily News!
ThadMcCotter (Rep. R-Mich.): U.S. Soccer team got robbed out of winning goal by the referee! "Open hand diplomacy" clearly not working in World Cup.
