Big news! Senator John McCain is now on Twitter. In case you haven’t heard, Twitter is a micro-blogging social networking site where each “tweet” is limited to 140 characters. And yes, this is the same John McCain who was scorned as being horribly out of touch during the campaign because he didn’t use e-mail all that much.
I’ve been enjoying following Senator McCain as each day he’s been tweeting a Top Ten list of wasteful spending projects being considered by Congress. Check it out.

What I’m wondering is, where are the names, Senator McCain? Why aren’t you making those big spenders famous? I know you didn’t win the election, but this is one promise to the American people that you could keep anyway. Unless, of course, it was only words.
(As a side note, Senator McCain has gained over 157,000 followers since January 23, 2009.)
