Maybe when Bush starts tweeting photos of his amazing socks he’ll earn that “verified” blue check mark. Socks or not, plenty were happy to welcome the 41st president to Twitter.

Red lines … blow awaaaaay.

Hey, Obama probably didn’t draw that line. Somebody else made that happen. (Pesky world!)

Fundraising emails on behalf of Democrat groups have reached the next level of desperation and creepiness.

National Review’s Jonah Goldberg shared a recent DCCC fundraising email and predicted future headers:

Readers notice something strange about this morning’s NYT in Pakistan [pics]

http://twitter.com/#!/aysharalam/status/447248979425001472
Readers tweeted out pictures of this morning’s edition of the New York Times in Pakistan, which displayed nothing in the space that many think should have contained a story on what Pakistan knew about Osama bin Laden.

Evidently, it is the most pressing issue of our time:
http://twitter.com/#!/JonahNRO/status/422404709891055616
Unbelievable. OK, it’s actually totally believable coming from the deluded folks over at “Meet the Press.” Remember, MTP recently had Ezra Klein and Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel on the “reality check” segment about … Obamacare. 
http://twitter.com/#!/meetthepress/status/422393973765046272
Precious.

Double boom.

Jonah Goldberg makes an exit prediction about what might be coming next from “Meet the Press” hacks:

Kristen Johnston slams RadarOnline for posting Robin Williams AA photo

http://twitter.com/#!/kjothesmartass/status/499244442017361920
Actress Kristen Johnston has been very open about her struggles with substance abuse. So when she learned about this tweet from gossip rag RadarOnline:

Radar Online Robin Williams tweet

(Note: Image blocked out by Twitchy)

She was rightfully disgusted:
http://twitter.com/#!/kjothesmartass/status/499245169578110976
http://twitter.com/#!/kjothesmartass/status/499273892943659010
From Johnston’s full post, via TwitLonger:

We’re used to being the butt of your jokes. We’re used to the media breathlessly using our addictions to make money.

However, when outlets like @Radar_Online, print photos of a celebrity ( and others) at an AA meeting trying to get well, they have crossed the line and have blood on their hands.

Addicts are NOT amusing. Addicts are NOT salacious. Addicts are NOT your entertainment.

Be sure to read the whole thing. Johnston’s moral outrage is well-founded. And she is most definitely not alone in being thoroughly repulsed:
