Many members of Congress are not happy with President Obama's debt-ceiling plan, but no one's disgust has been as eloquently articulated as Missouri Democrat Emanuel Cleaver's, who described the deal as a "sugar-coated Satan sandwich," during a meeting with Democrats. The vivid soundbite made such a splash that an anonymous Twitter account named @SatanSandwich was born. In its less-than five hours of existence, it has earned a slew of high-profile re-tweets.
So what do we know about Satan Sandwich based on his/her short life? Here's a short biography:
@SatanSandwich mocks liberals With tongue-in-cheek elation, @SatanSandwich has relished attacking the debt deal's most ardent liberal critics such as Washington Monthly blogger Steve Benen, who, the account says, "probably eats tofu burgers and listens to Lily Allen" and Paul Krugman, a "hippie," who might be more amenable to a "Beezlebub Croissant [sic]"
@SatanSandwich will negotiate with Tea Partiers Though a number of fiscal hawk Republicans don't care for the debt deal, the Sandwich has been trying to make inroads. An hour ago, he tweeted at Redstate blogger Erick Erickson asking him "What can I do to earn your support? I told Cantor we shouldn've included mandatory knifing of baby seals. They didn't bite."
