Flying Through: fishingboatproceeds: devonbanks: this is still my favorite tweet of all time Reenactment of us bringing George Washington back to life: George Washington: WHAT ARE THESE FLOATING SUNS THAT DOT THE LANDSCAPE IN THE NIGHTTIME? Us: Those are, like, electric lights. Electricity is a regulated public good; do you think we should deregulate the utilities or are we doing it right? George Washington: THEY BRING LIGHT WHERE THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN DARKNESS. Us: Yeah but did you intend— George Washington: WHAT IS THAT BLINKING COMET FLYING THROUGH THE AIR? Us: Yeah that’s an airplane. Should airplane accidents be investigated by the federal government or should that be a private— George Washington: A MAN CAN FLY THROUGH THE AIR? Us: Yeah, also a woman. We don’t really refer to people as “man” anymore, because it’s hugely sexist. Also, women and African American people can vote now, as can white people who don’t own property. That’s cool, right? George Washington: SO YOU’RE SAYING THERE ARE HUMANS INSIDE OF THAT COMET? Us: Well, it’s not a comet. It’s, like, a metal sphere moving 400 miles per hour across the country. Right now people have to walk through metal detectors run by the Homeland Security Department; is that a good idea or George Washington: WAIT, WOMEN CAN VOTE? Us: Yeah. George Washington: THAT IS MADNESS. Us: Well—you know, George, I don’t want to hurt your feelings, and thanks for crossing the Delaware and for Presidenting us early on and everything, but maybe you’re not the #1 guy to be asking about contemporary public policy in the United States.
