Funny Tweets on the DC Earthquake

It's no surprise that with yesterday's earthquake, twitterers were tweeting all kinds of funny one liners at the expense of Washington DC. Below are some of them. Please note that when it comes to tweets of a political nature I am including tweets that take shots at both sides of the political aisle. So, for those of you who take your politics much too seriously, sit back, take a deep breath, and try to enjoy life a little bit with these laughter shocks.
There is now officially nothing special about LA.

Holy Crap - something moved in Washington DC?!?!?

Krugman says it wasn't big enough.

Fox news claims the Washington monument is leaning to the right, MSNBC claims its leaning to the left. More news at 11.

Worst. Rapture. Ever

There was a 5.8 earthquake in Washington. Obama wanted it to be 3.4, but the Republicans wanted 5.8, so he compromised.

Sarah Palin says she can see the earthquake from her house.

We wouldn't have earthquakes like this if Hillary were president.

Bachmann out first with statement: as President she'll lower quakes to 2.9...

Give them a tax cut. Earthquakes are job creators...for people who sweep up glass.

After the earthquake, Democrats met behind closed doors to discuss taxing expenses on home repairs.

God: you missed. Congress has been on vacation for weeks.

Earthquake jokes are so 2:30.

Earthquake made me spill my tea. I'm available for interviews.

Maybe the debt ceiling finally collapsed.

I demand more news coverage about the earthquake. I want the reaction of every resident of Queens. When is David Gergen going to weigh in?

Wolf Blitzer has the earthquake on the phone.

GOP press release questioning earthquke science: "Scientists don't agree on why the ground shakes. Could be plates. Could be the devil."

Breaking: Obama administration points out they "inherited" fault lines from previous administrations.

AFTERSHOCK ... Oh, wait... that's just my cell phone on vibrate.

And my favorite: my etch-a-sketch gallery! It's RUINED!

My favorite so far:

The USGS has determined that the epicenter of the recent earthquake was beneath a cemetery on the outskirts of Washington DC. It seems that all of our founding fathers were rolling over in their graves.
