surprising tweet from last night
Last night twitter was, of course, on fire and all over the place. i managed to catch a tweet from a senator that noone on “our side” probably expected.
President Obama should also be commended for handling this situation well. I am confident Tsarnaev will receive a tough, fair trial.

Dear Sen. Stockman,
You and I probably don’t agree on much in terms of policy, and you may say some crazy shit sometimes, but I know that you hold your beliefs without cynicism. To pull an Andrew Sullivan, your tweet showed true Judicial Conservatism. Your followers weren’t happy about it, because their hate for our president supercedes common sense and following our constitution. Still and all, it was heartening to see you express, even in a tweet, your confidence in America, and her justice system.
