All Twittered Out

tweet-9.jpeg Just as it is with everything – talking, writing, nail biting, breathing (too loud), whistling (for any length of time) — there is such a thing as over-tweeting as chronicled in this entertaining read about compulsive twittering in The Week.

To give you a hint: A woman tweeted her miscarriage; another tweeted the birth of her child. And finally, Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) over-tweeted a trip that was supposed to be kept on the DL to Iraq with Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio).

“Just landed in Baghdad,” the subtle Hoekstra tweeted.

Bidding Tate A Fond Farewell

Roll Call has the details on Tina Tate’s fond farewell from the House Radio-TV Gallery:

    Gallery regulars, including Fox News Senior Producer Jim Mills and NBC’s Mike Viqueira, presented Tate on Thursday with a mocked-up House resolution (printed in an awfully convincing format — a testimony to the well-placed sources of those wily TV guys) lauding her tenure.

    H. Res. 321 (the gallery’s room number) was filled with touching “whereas”-es, such as, “Whereas Tina began her career in the Radio-TV Correspondents’ Gallery when Speaker Pelosi was still changing diapers, Leader Boehner was still bumming smokes from roommates … Whereas if the Newseum job doesn’t work out, Tina can go back to her original plan of running a nationwide chain of charm schools with Chairman Obey … ”

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) were among those who paid tribute to Tate with speeches at the Thursday night reception in the Longworth House Office Building.

Tate is leaving to manage media relations for the Newseum.

Boehner v. Rogers. Round Two

From Under the Dome:

    Boehner took another dagger yesterday when he ran into The Wall Street Journal’s David Rogers in the Speaker’s lobby just off the House floor.

    Boehner, who ridiculed Rogers’s wardrobe in his speech Tuesday, told Rogers, “You don’t look any better a day later.”

    Rogers shot back, “You’re not any funnier.”
