Chk Grassly UR retartedJesus fucking christ. Remember back in 1780-something, when we had actual smart people writing our founding documents in beautiful longhand when they weren’t inventing new kinds of ploughs and bifocals and shit? Now our nation’s top legislators just type away like petulant teenage girls, with their thumbs, about how the president is so awful for spending the weekend in Paris. We are all stupider for having read this. [Chuck Grassley’s Twitter]

  1. Sounds like someone is pouting because they didn’t get invited to Paris. He sounds crankier than Walnuts, which is quite a feat.


    Get a cellphone with a QWERTY keyboard, or turn on T9 Predictive Text on your cell phone. This will enable you to produce tweets that are not embarrassing. Okay, well, not really, but at least your spelling will improve.

  3. [re=333806]jagorev[/re]: Just curious, what does entering the letters “ur” predict? I would guess “urine”, which isn’t going to help much. Altho, you’re right, it wouldn’t hurt much, either.

  4. I’m undecided as to which is more assinie and inane, the content or the spllg and grmr, (skedul? really?). Jebus it’s embarrassing.

  5. I will personally give $100 to Grassley’s re-election campaign if he will Tweet (Twat, Twit) with reporters watching. Either he is a dumb (likely) or the role of Chuck Grassley’s Twitter is being played this summder by the freshest-faced, Jesus-lovingest Liberty U co-ed summer intern that you ever did see.

  6. He abbreviates the dumbest shit imaginable, making him sound like a 13-year-old goddamn girly girl, but he doesn’t realize that “25%” is shorter than “25per cent”?

  7. i understand that the “work week” under the prior administration was tuesday through thursday; having to actually work on the week-end must be a great burden for charles and his ilk. ( i just called his office and offered to trade health care with him, he is not interested.)

  8. Zomg! Sen gassy is lke sooo rite. We ned helfcre nowz and Obama is in paris wit al gre and crbn footprnt!!!1! WTF LOL ROFLMAO LULz PWNT BUTTHURT ETC.

    What a douche.

  9. He sounds like a jilted boyfriend bitching about his girlfriend going to the City of Romance and maybe cheating on him. Why do all these male Repubatards seem to have some sort of hot crush on Obama? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, I have a crush on O too. But I’m female.

  10. 4:34 am tweets? The senator’s prostate must be KILLING him. We’re lucky he doesn’t tweet OMG i cant blve i had 2 pee agn, tripped ovr the dog on way to bthrm, its all obama’s fault.

  11. Ohhh! Folks iz working on the weekend. These the same twats who claimed Nancy was “anti-family” because she made them work a full week instead of Tuesday thru Thursday, like they did when all they had to do was rubber stamp what ever Chimpy sent over?

    Poooor babys.

    Are we supposed to think they’re power users because they can tap (twit, twerp?) out “U” instead of “you”?

    I’ll bet most of them use ghost writers.

  12. No Sarah I don’t, I don’t remember when “when we had actual smart people writing our founding documents in beautiful longhand”, .. well there’s Deadwood,or “I am a Danish”. Umm.. actually I’ll just stick with Deadwood.

  13. I find this so depressing. I used to just strongly suspect that many congressman and women were idiots. Now, thanks to Twitter, I know they are idiots.

  14. “Pres Obama while u sightseeing in Paris plz txt me ur pix u r so hawwwwt wut r u wearing?
    4:51 AM Jun 7th from txt ”

    The stupid Gore/carbon footprint tweet is a call to WARBLOG if I have ever heard one. Since I am not a twat, however, I don’t know how to declare a twitterwar — just tweet “@ChuckGrassley trucknutz” or something?


  16. He admits to having a carbon footprint. That’s more than most Republicanus neanderthalii will admit. But this is a US Senator twatting, he probably hired an eager young person to tweet for him, someone with opposable thumbs. He’s a SENATOR and therefore, entitled to minions, after all.

  17. I’m heartened to see that we now have U.S. Senators who can only communicate in lolspeak.

    Fortunately, there are a bunch of lolspeak translators out there, so we can translate every Republican’s favorite parts of the Constitution – the Second and Tenth Amendments – into a form that Chuck and the TCOT crowd can understand:

    Amezndmeznt II

    A well regulated milishia, bein necessareh 2 teh seekurite of a free state, teh rite of teh peeplesz 2 keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    Oh yeah, the Bible is in lol too, so Chuck and the rest of the nutters are set for life. Revelation Chapter 21 is particularly funneh.

    Amezndmeznt X

    teh powers not delegated 2 teh United Statez by teh Constitushun, nor prohibited by it 2 teh states, r reserved 2 teh states respectiveleh, or 2 teh peeplez.

  18. Well, mission accomplished, Chuck, I guess. Marginally more people know you exist now than yesterday. The trade off, of course, is that those few extras think you are retarded, and the rest of us never cared anyway. Now shutup and go back to sucking off the board of ADM, you dirty whore.

  19. We’ll say it, for everyone who is afraid to say it:

    This “Twitter” thing is stupid. And moronic, inane, dumb, juvenile, childish, nerdy, unprofessional, and an embarrassment to any adult who uses it.

    It is stupid.

  20. [re=333924]thefrontpage[/re]: you know what i’m afraid of? i’m afraid people are beginning to use this in professional communiques. i actually recieved “r u attndng mtg @ 2?” i thought it was from my 12 yr old niece.

  21. In other articles about our dear Sen Grassley, he is apparently surprised and taken aback that the Press Corps keeps asking whether he is, in fact, the author of his “tweets.” He seems to take pride in demonstrating that 70-year old men know how to twitter…My guess is that there’s a growing contingent of GOP strategists that fervently wish that was NOT the case.

  22. I can’t believe the president actually dared to go commemorate D-Day with veterans and shit instead of staying home.

    I’m sure, if he had, the righties wouldn’t have mentioned it.

    God, they’re assholes.

  23. Remember back in 1780-something, when we had actual smart people writing our founding documents…

    The Founding Fathers didn’t have Twitter, else we’d’ve had “@jeffrson: y do u h8 strng cntrl govt???!!!??”

  24. [re=333942]the lady MS.Sheila Dixon[/re]: You know, that’s EXACTLY what I am afraid of. This is going to become the new, lower standard of business communication.

    Not good.

  25. So he is saying he farts 25% less than Al-Gore? How does one go about measuring their own farts? And how or why would you want to measure Al-Gore’s?

  26. [re=333827]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: I’ve said this repeatedly, so forgive me. I hope the free market exists long enough for Twits to invest in Twitter stock and lose their fucking shirts.

  27. Just when you thought discourse couldn’t possibly get any uglier.
    “OMG Obama iz teh suxx0rz!!1!”
    A big bag of dicks: he needs to eat one.

    Aneurysm – Meds = Twitter.

  28. He appears to be one of the feeble minded old americans who is not ready for the DTV transition hapening, uhhh this week.
    From his Twit-hole:
    Hv not been able to watch KWWL TV since Feb. When will I b able to get Ron Steele again
    9:15 PM Jun 4th from txt
    From Wikipedia:
    KWWL shut off its analog signal at 1pm on February 17, 2009,[3] and moved digital broadcasts back to channel 7.[4]
    This person who is running a (suck-ass) part of the country can’t figure out how to do a channel scan on his cable, or buy a dtv converter box with the coupon he voted to fund.

  29. I might take this criticism a bit more seriously if it wasn’t coming from a BLOG that made it’s hay by making anal sex jokes and interviewing the Washingtonienne.

    I guess the media equivalent of “If you can’t argue facts, argue the law” is “If you can’t argue facts, denigrate the medium in which they were delivered.”

  30. Hmmm funny, I remember Grassley sightseeing on weekends in Paris with his wife . . .but i guess since that was part of the official “scheduled of the NATO Parliamentary Congress (May 2006) he was working, not playing. Yeah, that’s TOTALLY different. Silly me.

    Careful POT!!!! Kettle watching!
