White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs filled out a very thin month of press briefings (just one so far, due to travel) with a Twitter “First Question” (hashtag #1Q) today directly to the American people.

The PS2POTUS chose to answer a question about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and a question about the passing of the START Treaty.   The resulting video is embedded above.  Not eligable to be answered, but seizing on the opportunity to razz his foes, presumptive House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Tweeted with a pot-and-kettle question about earmarks.
