Recap From the Tweet-Up with George Washington Plunkitt

George Washington Plunkitt, our sarcastic and satirical statesman, took to the Twitter stage today at 2 pm to jargogle and caterwaul with the American public.

Dr. Plunkitt (@GeorgeWPlunkitt) is a prize-winning American politician, news media editor, satirist, political help columnist, and full-time ghost. He served in both houses of the New York State Legislature from 1869-1904. George graciously consented to advise Americans in these times of trouble.

Here is a summary of what transpired:
First, some shameless self-promotion!

Then the questions from concerned citizens rolled in!

@AmSpec #DearGeorge Why aren’t politicians talking more about getting rid of HHS mandate against religious freedom? Don’t they care?

@Sunnie57 @AmSpec Madam, the gov’t believes the problem with the conscientious objector is that she is conscious. #DearGeorge
