|I love Twitter. Tweets are fun, especially when NeoCon politicans who are still trying to grasp "The Google on the Internets" try their hand at social networking. The results are hilarious and revealing. And -- best of all -- hard to retract. |
Take ol' Newt Gingrich, for example, who on May 27th Tweeted the Limbaughesque accusation that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was a racist: "White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw."
Still following? Raisin Brain would've given up by now. I bet Pickles is still trying to get the eraser marks off his laptop screen.
The Hill explains the ridiculous suit this way:
Suing over the @ sign. Doesn't Newt have anything better to do? Shouldn't he focus on his fight against Paganism in America?
Even more amusing, Sen. Charles Grassley (R/IA) has taken up Tweeting, with inane, nonsensical attacks against President Obama. According to Think Progress, on June 4 Grassley Tweeted: "Pres Obama while u sightseeing in Paris u said 'time to delivr on healthcare' When you are a "hammer" u think evrything is NAIL I'm no NAIL." And this from June 1st: "The prez is meetin w Finance and Help Demo bc doesn't appear they on same page Finance working biparty HELP more partisan. Where Prez land?"
Is this Grassley, or Yoda? Hey Chuck, I need a Grassley-to-English Dictionary. Any idea where I can get one of those?
Not satisfied with merely incoherent ramblings against Obama, Grassley also posted this about Al Gore: "My carbon footprint is abt 25per cent of Al Gore. I'm greener than Al Gore. Is that enuf?"
Don't Dweet and Dwive, Chuckie.
