King thumbs “macabre” in Tweet

Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron, Iowa) posted on Twitter on Fat Tuesday, then went silent for a few weeks.  King’s back tweeting this week.  He posted a tweet late last night about the health care debate and he used the word “macabre” as the punctuating word at the end: 

Obamacare: Senate can’t now pass Senate bill, but House must pass Senate bill, Senate must pass fix so House can pass Senate fix- macabre.

Here are the definitions of macabre (which King did spell correctly, by the way): 

1. having death as a subject. 2. dwelling on the gruesome. 3. tending to produce horror in the beholder.
