The Tweets of Charles Grassley

I am (usually) a big fan of Chuck Grassley, the Senator from our good neighbor to the South.

But over the weekend Chuck may have gone overboard. Tweets are such fun and so easy. Recently some Minnesota pols learned that there are consequences for being too fast on the tweet.

From the Wall Street Journal:

June 7:

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.

June 7:

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

Here’s a White House spokesman’s response to the Grassley tweets from June 7, as reported by the AP:

“President Obama is gratified that the Senate is working hard to bring a health-reform bill to the floor on schedule. He looks forward to continuing his work with them upon his return from the commemoration of Allied heroism at D-Day"

Ouch! That hurt!
