We Are All 17 Year Olds Now

This was all over the tubes yesterday, but it's so entertainingly crazy that I feel like I have to pass it along.  It's Sen. Chuck Grassley's Twitter feed, and Grassley really seems to have fully channeled the junior high school spirit of the whole thing.  First he's annoyed at an anodyne Obama call to "deliver" on healthcare because Obama is, like, obviously a slacker since he took some of the weekend off for sightseeing.  Then, a few minutes later, he's annoyed all over again.  Finally, this morning he feels compelled to toss a random barb at Al Gore.

Very strange.  Is Grassley off his meds or something?  Or did someone hijack his Twitter account?  That was actually my first thought, but his office hasn't denied the tweets so I guess they're really his.  Thus does Twitter make fools of us all.  Enjoy.
