Governor O’Malley (D-Md.) took to Twitter today in an attempt to spout some philosophical nonsense and some outright nonsense. Boy, did it fall flat.

Oh, our sides!

Bullshit. RT @GovernorOMalley: “When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.”–Arapaho proverb

I mean you could respect the hell out of a crocodile. He's still going to eat you given the chance, chief. @GovernorOMalley

Load of crap. "@GovernorOMalley: “When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.”–Arapaho proverb"

Fun Fact: The Arapahoe proverb quoted by @GovernorOMalley actually came from Elizabeth Warren.

.@MarkNewgent Like the Arapahoe @GovernorOMalley uses *every* part of the taxpayer.

His call for self-congratulation was also a flop.

So if one kid in MD is hungry on 1/1/15 will you take responsibility? @GovernorOMalley @onecampaign

Thats why we should never extract them. @GovernorOMalley natural resources play an important role in our #1 priority-creating & saving jobs.

Together, we've decided to invest more in education & for 4 years in a row now, we've been named the #1 school system in the nation.

— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) May 16, 2012

What do you mean "together we've decided to invest more in education" ? A lot of us objected to your ramrodded tax hikes @governoromalley

When @MDDems brag about @GovernorOMalley ed spending ask them why we still have persistent increasing achievment gaps http://t.co/m6WyVchb

What a joke @GovernorOMalley where's the "investment"? Due to budget cuts we lost 3 out of 6 ELEMENTARY schools! Thanks from Oakland MD

Despite billions extra spent on education MD ranks dead last in 8th grade math poverty gap. #whatMDDemswonttellyou @MDDems

@GovernorOMalley Congrats on taking more of my hard-earned money. I commute North Ave / Harford Rd everyday, so I'll see where it goes.

@GovernorOMalley: This special session was called for one purpose–to tax the citizens of MD again. Now, we've done that. #justsaying

@GovernorOMalley Proof that if you blindly throw money at a problem eventually it will work itself out #evenablindsquirreleventuallygetsanut

Sorry @Mddems @GovernorOMalley merely pushed back the due date on that college tuition increase. #themoreyoudontknow
