 FLOTUS Announced Her Twitter Account ‘Limited’ Due to Shutdown
By Andrew Johnson
October 1, 2013 3:10 PM


First lady Michelle Obama tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that her Twitter account will see fewer updates due to the government shutdown.

Quote
FLOTUS        ✔ @FLOTUS

Due to Congress’s failure to pass legislation to fund the government, updates to this account will be limited. #Shutdown
11:55 AM - 1 Oct 2013


In 2009, FactCheck.org found that the first lady had a staff of 24 people. It is unclear whether any of the first lady’s staff have been furloughed as a result of the government shutdown.

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open."

Isn't Twitter a free service?

Certainly, but the Moose has to pay a few dozen lackeys tens of thousands of dollars per year - each -  to tweet "her" thoughts to the masses.

Yeah, she's out mowing the lawn.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
