Roll Call: Latest News on Capitol Hill, Congress, Politics and Elections
February 11, 2016

Internet Haters All A-Twitter

File under “You can’t please any of the people any of the time.”

An innocent retweet by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) of our story on Monday about the floofy wittle pup — that’s @FloridaBriar to all Twitterati — prowling around the office of Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) has apparently opened both men up to attack by single-minded conservatives.

@DarrellIssa @HeardontheHill >((( @RepDennisRoss )))< SUPPORTS #NDAA #CISPA KILLING OF AMERICANS IN AMERICA @FloridaBriar,” the self-styled government watchdog known as @BigIncumbents blasted out, slamming Ross for supporting the polarizing National Defense Authorization Act and Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act but also hitting Issa, us and the puppy with hate shrapnel.

The “Conservative Wife, Mother and Author; Member of Tea Party and Heritage Foundation; Supporter of Freedom Alliance” known as @JLConservative joined the melee not 20 minutes later:

“@DarrellIssa @HeardontheHill @RepDennisRoss @FloridaBriar What happened to the “contempt” charges against AG Eric Holder?” she demanded of us all. (Again, dog included.)

And @JLConservative didn’t stop there. She made sure to strafe GOP Reps. Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) and Justin Amash (Mich.), as well as FreedomWorks with the boilerplate gripe.

So much for HOH’s cute-and-cuddly edition…
