Stay Classy, Rep. Paul Broun, MD

Posted By on Wed, Jan 26, 2011 at 10:05 AM

While it's unlikely the feel-good-Democrats-and-Republicans-hanging-out-together vibe of last night's State of the Union is going to last for long, Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia's Tenth District kept it real last night. He wasn't going to be coerced into sitting next to someone like Dennis Kucinich. He'd rather watch the address from his office and livetweet opinions like these:

However, this morning a quick glance at Rep. Broun's page seems to show that the somewhat tense post has been deleted, but regardless, it's a little difficult to pull back a tweet when it's been retweeted or commented on thousands of times already. This whole incident sort of makes me a little nostalgic for last year when Joe Wilson had enough courage to just yell stuff from the audience, instead of tweeting from another room and then pretending it didn't happen.
