I still don't quite understand why, but the Republicans have really latched onto the idea that if they just Twitter enough, they'll eventually convince all the kids that they're hip and stuff. So, they Twitter pretty much non-stop. And with that kind of Twitter activity — not to mention that kind of mentality — it's a statistical sure thing that they will provide us with unintentional comedy brilliance from time to time.
Case in point, this tweet from Minnesota congressperson Pete Hoekstra…
Iranian twitter activity similar to what we did in House last year when Republicans were shut down in the House.
The Internet — very much like Viking raiders laying waste to monasteries off the coast of the British isles — was went on the offensive…
rebeccarose2004: @petehoekstra You know, I stubbed my toe today. Now I know what Joan of Arc felt like.
RevCyn: @petehoekstra – When I got to McDonald's I found my coupon for fries had expired. It was like the great Irish potato famine.
wendyow: @petehoekstra: had to share a limo w Cantor & Boener on the way to Fox. Now I know what it's like being shipped by cattle car to Auchwitz.
stryder619: @petehoekstra I sat in a meeting as work today. Reminded me of Slavery
blanket: Hey @petehoekstra The neighbor kid threw his frisbee at my window. It felt like 9/11 all over again.
Talking Points Memo has its list of favorites.
As does Tosh.0.
