It’s Saturday at IJReview, and that means it’s time for Funniest #TweetsoftheWeek.
This week, we take a tour with #LiberalBandNames, jokes about Obama making taxes “fairer,” and the Twitter’s response to the White House’s hilarious comments on the death star petition.
#LiberalBandNames had the perfect recipe for a great hashtag game: ridiculously easy to play and endless puns.
First, we have Nick Gillespie of Reason magazine:

Twitchy captured the reaction to President Obama declaring that he had made the tax system more “fair”:
@barackobama if by “fairer” you mean higher then you’re right.

I have a friend who voted for Obama publicly complaining about the new #SS tax raise. I would just like to say: You did this to yourself.
