“Fuck. Another war.” – Washington Examiner‘s Tim Carney.
“Massive anti-war protests against Obama in 3,2, never.” – Slate‘s Dave Weigel.
“Odyssey Dawn. Military Operation or band at SXSW?” – SNL’s Seth Meyers. ABC’s Jake Tapper responded: “@sethmeyers21 I saw them at Libyapalooza with No-fly Zone, East of Surt, and Sons of Moammar.” WCP‘s Benjamin Freed also chimed in: “Can’t it be both?”

Last night, he added: “Journalists covering Libya: Wolf Blitzer applauds your work! You have not struggled in vain!” (Munz isn’t a journalist, but he’s a D.C. Twitter-er.)
Who does Mike Riggs hang out with, anyway?
“One of my friends just told me he was leaving soon to attend a (grown) coworker’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. What. The. Fuck.” – The Daily Caller‘s “Daily Baller” in a Saturday tweet.
