OK, my silly side thinks this is hilarious.
Virginia’s own, Congressman Eric Cantor, the erstwhile House Republican Whip, has embraced social media in a big way. I’ve written about his use of You Tube and I’ve mentioned a little bit about his use of Twitter. But today I recognized that Democrats who want to have a little fun at Rep. Cantor’s expense can so via Twitter.
Everything you tweet which includes the hashtag #Cantor is aggregated to appear on the House GOP Whip’s Twitter feed.
This afternoon, I recommended that it would be really entertaining to use the feed to say really nice things about Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats. It’s kind of a “Welcome to the Netroots” present for Congressman Cantor.
You should know that another blog, the wonderfully entertaining “Where’s Eric Cantor?”, has reported that Rep. Cantor’s staff was censoring the feed. I believe that reporting is accurate, but apparently the censor doesn’t work on Saturdays, because there have been quite a few entertaining tweets today.
Here’s a sample:
- Nancy Pelosi has shown great leadership on the stimulus package! #Cantor
- Funny, @nancy pelosi never voted for a law that bailed out her spouse’s employer, like Eric “No We” Cantor did #Cantor
- Republican attacks on @NancyPelosi have only helped increase Democratic support among women. ERIC–eh, EPIC– FAIL GOP. #Cantor
Spread the word and have some fun, just use #Cantor!
