What Chutzpah! This tweet would have been more honest if Rusty would have tweeted this instead:

“Proud my bipartisan bill (which probably helps my brother’s wind farm somehow) wasting saving taxpayer $ and energy was signed into law today by @ Bill Clinton BarackObama…”

On another note. Did you all know that Rusty is a centrist now? Yeah, we didn’t either!
