A fine feed of tweets is a buttery blend of headlines, punchlines and shoptalk. But the conditions must cooperate to provide consistency.
This week we tasted the acetic bite of Scott Walker and the forces of Koch prevailing in Wisconsin combined with the oaky levity of the Romney campaign’s ever-goofier gaffes. Then a tart surprise as Mitt had outraised the President with the help of the RNC. Yet we were left with a pleasing aftertaste when Nate Silver of the New York Times emerged with his legendarily accurate predictive model for the presidential election.
Here are the best tweets of the week:

Who will explode first, Romney from pretending he doesn’t love Obamacare, or Boehner from pretending he doesn’t hate his party?
