Today, via Twitter:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

N. Korea spits in our eye again with its nuclear test and our country toys with cutting our defense?! We must totally replace #sequester. 5:04 AM – 12 Feb 13

While Representative Hartzler (r) did not vote for the sequester deal, a whole bunch of republicans (the majority voting for it) did. Speaker John Boehner (r) at the time:

Boehner: I got ’98 percent’ of what I wanted in debt deal

By Daniel Strauss – 08/02/11 07:27 AM ET

“….When you look at this final agreement that we came to with the White House, I got 98 percent of what I wanted. I’m pretty happy,” Boehner said in an interview with CBS News….

….The measure passed the House Monday 269-161, with 174 Republicans backing the bill. Sixty-six Republicans voted against the plan….

And the Twitter responses to Representative Hartzler (r) this morning are priceless:

@RepHartzler Replace it with what? Or is the GOP suddenly against spending cuts? 5:09 AM – 12 Feb 13

Mike Urban ‏@mju1983

.@RepHartzler Yeah, as a Missourian let me tell you how worried about N. Korea I am………(is that enough dots for the proper level of sarcasm?) 5:18 AM – 12 Feb 13

“….N. Korea spits in our eye….”

If this was a Monty Python script we could hurl surreal insults at them. Oh, sorry, apparently it is a Monty Python script.
