GOP shenanigans in Connecticut:

Twitter, Inc., shut down 33 fake Twitter accounts created by Republicans using the names of Democratic state representatives. The Republican scheme was to send out posts under the Democrats' names mocking the liberal tax-and-spend bastards.

"That's unfortunate," was state Republican Chairman Chris Healy's response when told of Twitter, Inc.'s decision. "I'm not quite sure what the issue is, other than that the Democrats were successful in stopping free speech."

Yeah, because surely if the founders could have foreseen the Internet the First Amendment would read: "Congress shall make no law abridging the right of political operatives to masquerade online as opponents for purposes of deceiving voters."

Fortunately for these resourceful scumbags, they still have the 33 web sites they created using the same Democratic officials' names. Unbelieveable. If Democrats had done this, it would be the top story on Fox News and CNN for a week, and we'd still be hearing about it years later. — Frank Lewis
