I am home sick, bored and watching "The View". Normally, I wouldn't comment about the show but Whoopi Goldberg just read a tweet from Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa that sounds like it was written by a 10 year old. Actually, there were two tweets, Whoopi just read them together:
"Pres Obama you got nerve while u sightseeing in Paris to tell us 'time to deliver' on health care. We still on skedul/even workinWKEND."
"Pres Obama while u sightseeing in Paris u said 'time to delivr on healthcare' When you are a 'hammer' u think everything is NAIL I'm no NAIL."
While my mind screams "No U.S. Senator would write such drivel knowing it will hit the internet within nanoseconds", my common sense tells me to slap myself upside the head and get real. This is America. We admire uneducated political demagogues who speechify.
I quickly googled "Grassley tweet" to see if the quote were intact and accurate and came across this hilarious post from The Political Carnival. I've just added this blog to my list.
Oh, and if you want more bon mots from Senator Grassley, go here.
