Heard on the Hill: Nicely Named Newsletters

If you sign up for an email newsletter from Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), you will receive what he calls a Freedom Alert.

Whether these emails alert you to your own freedom (or someone elses) remains unclear, but we decided it was the perfect opportunity to assess other Members email newsletters for any particularly fun names. (Warning: This group loves to alliterate like its a verb.)

1.  Under the Dome, Closer to Home Rep. Mike Quigleys (D-Ill.) newsletter has only had one issue so far, but it was our favorite, so it made the list. We are sure Quigley thought up this name straight from the top of his own dome.

2. AKIN ALERT Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) proves that ALL CAPS are always crucial.

3. News from Nan Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.) has channeled everyones favorite grandmother and sends her news through the Internet tubes.

4. Congressman Pauls Straight Up Talk Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) serves his news strong, like whiskey, because hes from Texas.

5. Wilsons Weekly Watch Rep. Joe Wilsons (R-S.C.) newsletters should end just like his floor speeches: We will never forget Sept. 11 and the global war on terror.
