Congress a-twitter

Posted By on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 11:02 AM

U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder wasn't the only one madly texting during President Obama's speech last night. Apparently the place looked less like Congress than a junior high lunch hour, with the Kool Kidz texting and Tweeting and streaming video and otherwise not fully paying attention.

Here's the Washington Post account. Among the snippets:

Then there was Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), in whose name this text message was sent at about the time the president spoke of the need to pull the country together: "Aggie basketball game is about to start on espn2 for those of you that aren't going to bother watching pelosi smirk for the next hour." A few minutes later, another message came through: "Disregard that last Tweet from a staffer."
