#MTLeg Tweets of the Week 26 March 2011

I decided I’d move the Tweets of the Week post to Saturday, in the hopes of providing some entertainment for those following incredibly long Saturdays in the Capitol. It’s certainly possible that I failed to recall some of the best, but please enjoy this small sampling of the best from the #MTLeg this week.

Most Ironic Post

@jknox65: #mtleg They are rather shallow in their approach? Maybe it takes more then 140 characters to make sense Derek? ROFL  (Not enough characters in the world)

Runners Up

  • @Barkingskwerl: When I look at the #mtleg tag sometimes I pronounce it “empty ledge” which is sort of how ths session feels UR onfire lol
  • @MontanaNut: “I worked around cyanide for 12 hrs, & could tell when I was getting too much of it…it was rare that I got too much” Rep Hale #MTLeg
  • @MikeMillerHD84:Should the PSC “regulate” medical or therapeutic marijuana? Well, it does take a lot of power to grow. #MTLeg
  • @HD97RepReinhart:HB 13, Pay Plan, blast motion fails 39-54. Sorry state employees. GOP tossed you under the Tea Party Express Train. Broken deals. #mtleg
  • @MarneeBanks:Rep Sesso says the “Janna Taylor memorial handrail bill” will cost the state $350K. #mtleg
  • @JameeGreer: Himes said in the Senate that it “stifles anti-homosexual dissent.” I think that means “picking on the gay kid.” #MTLeg

2nd Place

@brycebennet:Rep. Wagner stands up for a fetus’ constitutional right to bear arms. #MTLeg

This Week’s Winner

@inthemilk:Sen. Windy Boy: Add retroactive applicability date of 1889 to bill requiring proof of U.S. residency for MT drivers license. #Awesome #MTLeg

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
