#NameTheCuts: Conservatives in a candy store propose ways to slim government

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner paid a visit to Capitol Hill today to present the White House’s proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff, but it looks like President Obama accidentally forget to put in the spending cuts. Not to worry: Slade O’Brien, Florida Director for Americans for Prosperity, set off a conservative Twitterstorm by asking people what cuts to government they would like to see.

For the right wing Twitterverse, that’s like asking a crowd of kindergarteners what kind of candy they want.

And finally, our winner for the evening….

*drumroll*

Well played, sir, well played.
