The White House Makes a ‘More Cowbell’ Joke


Yesterday the usually not-at-all humorous White House Twitter feed celebrated its one-millionth follower with a reference to SNL’s classic “more cowbell” skit. “A million followers — nice,” the tweet reads. “What would you like to see more of from this feed? Photos? Quotes? Cowbell? Tell us @whitehouse.” Of course, the danger here is that Americans actually will clamor for more cowbell. You talk a mean game, White House — but can you back it up? A failure to enact health-care reform would be one thing, but the people simply will not stand for it if a promised increase in cowbell goes unrealized. [Political Ticker/CNN]
