#ThingsThatWorkBetterThanCongress: Ring in the new year with mockery, the best medicine

Heh. What better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve than with some giggles at Congress’ expense? While members of Congress are blustering about doing their Kabuki theater fiscal cliff act, Twitter users decided to combine Greek tragedy and comedy.

Ah, yes! Those “intimate gatherings” with crowds in the ones and tens!

Zing!  We know how well that one worked out, don’t we?

Here is another friendly reminder for President Obama.

And, win!

Keep them coming, Twitter.

    As a recently-converted Severe Conservative I would like to say that Obama sucks and Romney rulez!

      Your comments fail to enlighten regardless of which political principles you pretend to support.

    • TocksNedlog

      Mark’s ‘sense of humor’ would be one of the (very few) things that works WORSE than Congress.

      Another Epic Fail. At some point, I’m sure your need for attention here on Twitchy will get you some sort of award. Until then, keep trying! Because you’re obviously just not trying HARD enough!

      • Bob Smooper

        As a recently converted Severe Conservative I was hoping for more support from twitchy! But you and the other Obama-bots just won’t give me a chance! You are worse than the LAMESTREAM MEDIA! !

      What, exactly, is a “Severe Conservative”? And in what sense is it a proper noun?

        Isn’t that kind of like ‘radical Conservative’? I’m sure I’ve heard that somewhere….

    Susan B. Anthony dollars. The Chevy Volt of coins. A prime example of government fail. Here is something that everybody wants (money), but as a government planned/produced product is an utter failure.

    Undaunted, the government says, “We can fix the problem!”, and begins stamping out Sacagawea coins.

    Wait until the country has been fully herded into the Obamacare corral for a really spectacular fail.

      Not me!!! I had the pleasure of spending some time with June Lockhart at the Blue Jean Ball at the Willard Hotel in DC on the occasion of Clinton’s 2nd inaugural….only went because I got free tickets…but she was an absolute gem…Hanging out with Little Feat wasn’t bad either!!!

      • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ Penny Robinson Fan Club

        Never hung out with Little Feat but I did meet June L last September at a celebrity show, AND the kids! Will, Penny & Judy, er, Bill, Angela & Marta. What a thrill! Got my picture taken with the bunch (Mark Goddard was supposed to have been there too but called in sick, I met him later on.) June was very sweet but a bit frail. Met a few other celebs too. Monstrously expensive day,but worth every penny (haha!).

    While against my better judgement to sign up for something on WhiteHouse.Gov, I started a petition there to push for a constitutional amendment to create term limits for members of congress. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/impose-congressional-term-limits/jKRmntYp

    Congress doesn’t work, lets limit how long they don’t work.

    Enjoy your little charade. You’re back to 8th grade on Wednesday.

  • EEKman

    I’m on my Obamaphone talking to all my socialist buddies about how our plan to destroy America is finally coming to fruition. They never suspected our secret weapon of affordable healthcare because it came out of a conservative think tank. Were each having our fair share of communist beers and reveling in the equality of our genius. Collectively, we fart in the general direction of the GOP.

  • mdtljt

    You and the jackhole Georgetown supposed Constitutional Law professor who wrote the NYT op-ed about abandoning the Constitution…do us all a favor…renounce your US citizenship and move to North Korea, Cuba or Venezuela. Sure you’ll have to learn another language, but the perks will be sooooooo worth it…and this time, I’m not even going to use the lovely Southernism to relay this thought…you’re so stupid…
