Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) took advantage of a small D.C.-area earthquake Friday morning to bash the length of March's healthcare overhaul bill.

He tweeted:

Small earthquake in DC this morning...someone must have dropped a copy of ObamaCare.

Republicans used the bill's length -- 1,990 pages -- to criticize the legislation during debate.

The joke echoed one made by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) in February, at the height of the D.C. snowstorm.

DeMint tweeted:

It's going to keep snowing in DC until Al Gore cries "uncle"

Friday's 3.6-magnitude quake hit Gaithersburg, Md., at around 5 a.m.
