As though manufactured anonymous sources wasn't enough, today BuzzFeed's own Andrew Kaczynski is now tweeting out mockery of sequestration fear-mongering.

Yes, that's correct, ladies and gentlemen, a guy who works for a site that was the tip of the online spear when it came to spreading the White House's lies about sequestration-doom is now tweeting mockery of sequestration doom.
