WH: 'Heads up, Sen. Grassley. I think a 6-year-old hijacked your account'



White House Aide Responds to Grassley's Tweet Which Calls President 'Stupid'

WASHINGTON- In what many perceive as a breach of decorum, Sen. Chuck Grassley wrote a tweet over the weekend that called President Obama 'stupid.' "Constituents askd why i am not outraged at PresO attack on supreme court independence. Bcause Am ppl r not stupid as this x prof of con law," Grassley tweeted in typical Twitter code . . .

. . . Obama aide David Axelrod even saw fit to respond on his own twitter account, writing, "Heads up, Sen. Grassley. I think a 6-year-old hijacked your account and is sending out foolish Tweets just to embarrass you!"

9. Did Grassley write that himself, or did a dipshit staffer do it for him, I wonder?

Talk about stupid--what a memorable quote from the Senator to illustrate the rather stupid "dumbing down" of America. The abbreviations (con for Constitutional, for example), are curious enough--no doubt in that case intended to reference a "con man," but the capitalization is what makes me laugh--it does look like a six year old wrote it. He managed a "P" for Pres(ident), but couldn't hit the shift for the S and C in Supreme Court? Couldn't even give HIMSELF the "Big I" either!

He should be humiliated--he looks like an old-man-ass, trying to be one of the "kool kidz." Big fail, as those kidz say! Act your age, not your shoe size! Chuckie, as the song goes!

16. Probably a dipshit staffer, but it doesn't matter

If Grassley is going to let dipshit staffers post in his name, it's his problem. His name is on the tweet and he owns it.

21. Oh, I concur completely--I just want to see him try to blame it on someone else!

He's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't...he's gotta own that stupidity no matter what!

11. I would love to be the fly in the room as Grassley gathers his entire staff

and spend hour after hour trying to respond to one of the greatest putdowns in political history.

This is pure "did you stop beating your wife" territory.

but I have to admit that was a pretty clever response from Axelrod.

They had a specific name for it, but I forget what they call it.

31. Here's what it might look like in normal English -- and it fits on Twitter.

"I'm not outraged at PBO's attack on SCOTUS independence b/c the American people are not as stupid as this ex-professor of constitutional law"
