After Speaker John Boehner failed to rally enough support for his “Plan B” bill, many people tweeted tasteless abortion puns about the fiscal cliff measure that shares its nickname with a brand of emergency contraception. But only one of them was a sitting congressman.

Several members of the lapdog media retweeted Oregon Rep. Blumenauer. But nearly 12 hours later, it appears that none of them considered a Democratic congressman cracking an abortion joke newsworthy enough to write about.

One ThinkProgress editor was delighted at Blumenauer’s “sassy” quip.

Abortion punchlines: Sassy.
