In Alabama, this: "As the battle over Obamacare rages in Washington, the White House is quietly using a little known provision of the law to roll out a nationwide network of free gas stations for minorities and the poor." passed the "things I should tell my friends right away" test for Blaine Galliher, who is in the Bentley Administration as Legislative Director.

Probably reading the news after a long day of shuffling memos from ALEC, saw the text above and decided people should know.

Then, to make sure the right people saw it, he posted it again.

All was well with the world. Paul Revere would be proud. Then someone more Daily Currant savvy noticed, and told their friends. And Blaine2Blaine overheard their laughter. Panic probably ensued. Sweaty fingers fumbling, phone does a double somersault, ricochets off the coffee table and scoots beneath the couch. Eventually buttons are stabbed and offenses excised. Deleted from his time line and now just memories on the Internet.
