TWITTER PRANKSTERS  9:56 am August 25, 2011

All We Heard Was ‘Scott Brown,’ ‘Twitter’ and ‘Gay’

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

teehee gay jokes!2 many hawt pixxx of naked gay Scott Brown on Twitter whut??!!?! NO, boo, it’s just some story about one of naked Scott Brown’s dumb aides doing something dumb and very much NOT naked Scott Brown on Twitter. Scott Brown (and Mitt Romney!) aide Eric Fehrnstrom got caught using a fake Twitter account to impersonate the insane alter-ego of Scott Brown’s Democratic challenger Alan Khazei and made jokes about gay videos and a bunch of insider Massachusetts stuff no one understands, which is terrible, mostly because it is inane. We rate this “political scandal” a -4, because it got our hopes up. Damn you, Scott Brown’s lame aide! Oh well, did someone make Eric Fehrnstrom pretend to apologize? 

From WaPo:

A strategist for 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republican Sen. Scott Brown (Mass.) has admitted to authoring a fake Twitter account that makes light of the “It Gets Better Project” for gay youth and pokes fun at reporters covering Massachusetts politics.

Romney strategist Eric Fehrnstrom admitted on Wednesday evening to authoring the fake Twitter account @CrazyKhazei.

“It was my Twitter acccount,” the aide said in an email to the Boston Globe. “Sometimes we take our politics too seriously and this was my way of lightening things up. As they say in politics, if you can’t stand the tweet, get out of the kitchen.”

Yes, we hear that one all the time. [WaPo]

Its like its High School all over again but with more assholes than I remember. (Grow Up)

And more fucking bullies stealing yer lunch moniez.

You clearly didn't spend enough time in the locker room showers.

Assholes for miles.

No kidding. "Henh, henh, I'm gonna make fun of the gay kids who are already upset and struggling and feeling marginalized because, henh, easy target. And if anyone says anything about my vicious comments, well hey man, I was JUST KIDDING, you can't take a joke, lighten up. That'll totally get me off the hook for whatever asshole things I say! henh, henh."

SorosBot August 25, 2011 at 11:54 am

Remembering high school and guys like this asshole I'm just surprised he resisted the urge to say "fag videos" instead. It's typical of Republicans, though, that they were the high school bullies and still have the bully mentality.

MichelesPantalones August 25, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Yesterday I learned right here at teh Wonketz that nut-punching is a new, exciting lovestyle of teh ghey. I therefore offer to totally nut-punch Eric Fernstrohm.

This kind of nonsense will cease when Elizabeth Warren is coronated elected. What could work out better than a Harvard professor in government? Think of, say, Henry Kissinger…

Will this coronation be before or after the Royal Wedding to Krugman?

SorosBot August 25, 2011 at 10:01 am

Based on those twitter thingies, Eric should apologize for not being funny.

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 10:54 am

Conservatives and humor go together like mustard and ice cream.

Seriously – if you want to cringe, watch, listen or read a right wing nut trying to be funny.

MichelesPantalones August 25, 2011 at 3:12 pm

I've been trying to figure out the astounding lack of funneh in the RWNJs. Someone mentioned that humour needs to skewer the power structure in order to appeal universally. But there's plenty of skewering of *everyone* going on in, say, Voltaire, or Shakespeare, or any of the examples of humour that have come down through the ages. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's a streak of anger and meanness in the RWNJs' attempts at humour that make it unsuccessful and uncomfortable. Do give me your perspective, though.

MittsHairHelmet August 25, 2011 at 10:01 am

Massachusetts… the smartest state in the country, still dumb enough to elect Scott Brown.

4TheTurnstiles August 25, 2011 at 11:33 am

Martha Coakley: very shitty candidate, or very shittiest candidate ever?

MittsHairHelmet August 25, 2011 at 1:16 pm

Shittiest ever. Capuano is 100x better. He got my vote in the primary.

Negropolis August 25, 2011 at 9:46 pm

And Scott, himself, is easily one of the dumbest senators around, bless his stupid little heart. But, he's cool 'cause he drives a pick-up around MA, right? WTF? I didn't know Massachusetts was Texas.

AJWjr. August 25, 2011 at 12:04 pm

I used to work for a right-wingnut (I know, shocker) and when he thought he was being funny he'd snort and titter while trying to toss out the "punch line", making it entirely unintelligible. I liked my job, so I politely laughed.

His humor does seem to be aimed at the frat boy/teabagger intersection, more than anything else.

DashboardBuddha August 25, 2011 at 10:22 am

Exactly…and this is one of the things that bugs me about him and his ilk. Drudge, O'Keefe et al are all braying fratboys. They are a real life Steve Dallas, taking delight in giving the world a wedgie.

Oh I'd like to see more of O'Keefe – specifically his trial and getting his ass to prison where it belongs.

Neat! Mocking a program designed to try to convince persecuted kids from killing themselves is always good for a laff.

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 10:57 am

Reminds me of the evening Johnny Carson just couldn't get his audience going.

"Should we bring out a fat guy and shoot at his feet?"

SayItWithWookies August 25, 2011 at 11:01 am

There's nothing funnier than mocking people who don't live up to their own high standard of rugged individualism — right after they complain about being persecuted by the PC media.

Chillwaver August 25, 2011 at 10:05 am

"Romney strategist Eric Fehrnstrom admitted on Wednesday evening to authoring the fake Twitter account "

It's all shits and giggles in the Romney camp 'til Perry takes the lead.

SorosBot August 25, 2011 at 10:10 am

So I guess the Republican primary now goes to the dumbest candidate.

LesBontemps August 25, 2011 at 10:15 am

Didn't it always?

History is simply repetitively redundant.

Well, not quite. Sarah hasn't declared yet.

weejee August 25, 2011 at 10:35 am

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 10:57 am

CW: Perry may take the lead, but Romney takes the nomination. The GNoP always takes the most corporate candidate.

sunmusing August 25, 2011 at 3:01 pm

I don't know. Perry is well thought of by the Texhas corps. He may just shoot his wad on the way to his nomination.

ifthethunderdontgetya August 25, 2011 at 10:05 am

Even by nonpology standards, that was weak.

"I'm sorry you d-bags didn't get the awesomeness of my humor!"

Fuck you.

Negropolis August 25, 2011 at 10:00 pm

Actually, it wasn't even an attempt at an apology. He simply fired another shot across the bow.

mumbly_joe August 25, 2011 at 10:06 am

A commenter on TPM came up with a proposal that I highly support. Calling "scandals"(???) like this "Inside Baseball" is an insult to baseball, which may be extremely boring, but at least it's fun to overeat and overdrink while baseball is going on somewhere near you.

So, I hearby second his proposal for a new name for this sort of stuff: Incest Media. Not only is it so gross that even talking about it is gross, but you won't actually have any fun if you're near it, either.

Fare la Volpe August 25, 2011 at 10:40 am

It's all relative.

SayItWithWookies August 25, 2011 at 11:03 am

Now that News of the World is no longer tapping the royal family, I guess the name's available.

x111e7thst August 25, 2011 at 10:06 am

"..if you can’t stand the tweet, get out of the kitchen.” Good one. Right up there with: "If you can't stand the blackface, don't go to the minstrel show".

Or, "Who knew there was anything wrong with watermelon jokes? My family has been telling them for years."

MichelesPantalones August 25, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Now imagine being a nonwhite person and hearing those jokes. And when you point out that they're not funny, what do these walking incarnations of pure chutzpah respond with? "Well, I don't understand why you're so sensitive! It's not like *you're* black, or anything." This to someone who looks black enough to black people to pass. Is there some degree of "blackness" one must have before finding watermelon jokes unfunny? I think I'm going to put together a book and title it When to Laugh, or The Appropriateness Of Ethnic Humour. If I survive that long.

Betcha this guy wears his polo shirt with the collar turned up.

freakishlywrong August 25, 2011 at 10:21 am

Ugh. And his visor backwards, so the awful part of a visor that's supposed to shade his face, and the only reason anyone wears those hideous things, is rendered worthless. But it gives him "street cred".

elviouslyqueer August 25, 2011 at 10:10 am

Well, Scott Brown might not be gay, but judging from his (real) pic, Fehrnstrom's had his face buried in the crotch of more than a few pairs of magic undies.

MissusBarry August 25, 2011 at 10:10 am

Once again, rethugs demonstrate their canny grasp of Murkin humor. Dude, you're unworthy of quality snark.

hollywooddood August 25, 2011 at 10:12 am

No doubt his teabagger audience thought it was a laugh riot.

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 11:01 am

I believe that is usually spelt "laff." Just in case someone doesn't get the joke.

petehammer August 25, 2011 at 10:12 am

Fehrnstrom is a classic combination of German words that we don't have a very exact definition for. I guess the closest is the feeling when you try so hard to poop – you're sitting and grunting, etc – that you end up pissing in your own face. It's more eloquent in German, but you get the gist of it.

Example – I was so focused on racing my bike that I ignored the red light and ended up Fehrnstroming myself on a truck.

freakishlywrong August 25, 2011 at 10:33 am

I fist this post.

MichelesPantalones August 25, 2011 at 3:29 pm

"Fehrnstroming myself" sounds pleasant.

In flyover country it's more like "If you can't stand the sadistic bullying, get out of existence".

“Sometimes we take our politics too seriously and this was my way of lightening things up. As they say in politics, if you can’t stand the tweet, get out of the kitchen.”

Suicide is one of the most effective paths towards gay abstinence.

MichelesPantalones August 25, 2011 at 3:33 pm

You don't even have to be gay! All abstinence should include a suicide component! After all, X years without sex during your highest-ever hormone levels is something no teen should ever have to suffer.

Also, noting that this moron outed himself because he was too stupid to realize which Twitter account he was on.

Five pounds of Fehrnstrom in a three pound bag.

> if you want less spending and lower taxes then you're a terrorist

When the country is deep in three fucking wars, you damn well are.

OT – "Maine, Alaska, Oklahoma, Kentucky and Nevada, ranked at the top for divorces, while Utah, Wyoming and Arkansas – which had the highest marriage rates – were also higher than average in marital breakups. New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York ranked among the lowest in divorces."

So much for those Red State Family Values. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/25/united-s

That's because us libruls don't bother getting married — at least not for the first 10 years.

Negropolis August 25, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Which kind of means that the ones that do get married are for real about it. The best way to "protect marriage" is to delay it, obviously.

"if you can’t stand the tweet, get out of the kitchen.”

No, Eric, it's the TWIT we can't stand.

The only Scott Brown tweet I want to read about is the one that says "Congratulations to Senator-Elect Warren."

Negropolis August 25, 2011 at 10:47 pm

Would he be so classy?

All I know is I am in the cone of uncertainty, so canned goods, warm drinks and nuts at my place this weekend.

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 1:47 pm

We have nuts at our place every weekend.

LiveToServeYa August 25, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Pointless. You can't make a fake Twitter account without it going amok and supporting Newt Gingrich.

DrinkYerBourbon August 25, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Who do you have to blow to post a comment around here?

Not saying Scott is teh gay, but I'm betting he would hold one between his cheeks (upper or lower) 'till the swelling went down.

Callyson August 25, 2011 at 1:44 pm

“I promise to devote all my time in office to making gay videos. Shame on Scott Brown for focusing on jobs!”
Given the lack of success Scott Brown is having in his laser like focus on jobs, those gay videos don't sound so bad. Gay porn actors need to make a living too…

If the Post had said the same thing about the campaigns themselves, I may consider reading it.

Tundra Grifter August 25, 2011 at 10:55 am

This is the Boss "I wasn't wrong; I was misinformed" BlunderRush "defense" – string together a series of remarkably tasteless comments, then defend yourself with "Can't you take a joke?"

Barrelhse August 25, 2011 at 11:17 am

Fuck sophomoric. This shit is Junior High.

Ohforcripessake August 25, 2011 at 11:44 am

"..sophomoric and borders on being tasteless."

Sums up our political climate quite nicely.

Negropolis August 25, 2011 at 9:50 pm

I love how mainstream news has ben so neutered, that they had to add the qualifier "borders on being" to tasteless, as if it's not tasteless right on its face.

Actually Romney was an excellent governor for us. After Cellucci/Jane Swift's incompetence, Mitt was a major upgrade.

Remember, he does whatever he thinks will make his constituents happy. That healthcare law really works. Our uninsured rate is 2%.

elviouslyqueer August 25, 2011 at 11:03 am

Louder, please. 'Cuz inconvenient facts like this make baby John Boehner cry.

I'd watch that porno.

Guess I shoulda known they'd have their own site.
