He’s not a comedian, but the Wall Street Journal editorial board found the humor in one of David Freddoso’s tweets. So much so, that it was included in one of Wednesday’s editorials about the the Obama administration distancing itself from the IRS.
“The Washington Examiner‘s David Freddoso joked on Twitter that ‘Seal Team 6 is the only govt agency that acts directly on Obama’s behalf,'” it reads. (That’s actually not a direct quote of Freddoso’s tweet but it’s close.)
“Hey, I got a shout-out in today’s WSJ editorial,” Freddoso tweeted with a link to the editorial attached.
It was a clever remark, no doubt. But should Freddoso turn in his pen for clown shoes just yet? How funny was the joke? We’ve requested comment from Freddoso. But in the meantime, cast your vote in our Fish Poll:
Update: Freddoso got back to us after this post published. He told us he wasn’t aware that his tweet would make it into the editorial. “A friend wrote to tell me about it this morning, I had no idea,” he said. “I think some people at the Journal follow me.” Otherwise, he said, they may have seen the tweet featured in a post Slate‘s Dave Weigel wrote Tuesday.
