Last Summer I had the privilege of meeting John Boehner, one of his aids snapped this photo. Today, John Boehner started following me on Twitter. You to can follow us @JohnBoehner and @JohnBeagle on Twitter.

Twitter is a free social networking tool, its the most popular micro-blogging service on the Internet.

Today @JohnBoehner has 2431 followers with only 269 updates.
Congressman Boehner started tweeting on April 21, 2007.

Here is his first tweet:
Have an op-ed on

Being a local businessman and homeowner in Mr. Boehner’s 8th Ohio District, I feel my voice is being heard in congress. That’s because Mr. Boehner is pro-business. He knows that businesses like mine are the backbone of the economy and that taxes and regulation are literally squeezing the life out of small business.

Barack Obama surely has a lead on Twitter with 144,000 followers.

With efforts from people like John Boehner, and Top Conservatives on Twitter #tCOT, aka #TCOC, the conservative voice will be heard. We have a lot of work to do. Currently, Brooks Bayne @BrooksBayne is the #TCOC having 20,488 followers at last count.

All told, there are very few republican congressmen on this list or on Twitter to say the least. I am calling all republican congressman to post comments on twitter. Keep your constituency informed.

(John Boehner is rated 77th on #TCOT)

This year, our family met people from Jamica. The photo is of my son, Bobby demonstrating his knowledge of the culture, Rastafarianism*. Don’t worry, be happy.

*Some Rastafari wear their hair in an untended, uncut condition called dreadlocks. They generally believe in the Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia. He is said to be the true descendant of Solomon, and precepts are shared amongst followers as folklore.
