Twitter. Where a 76 year old republican senator named Chuck Grassley writes the following:

Pres Obama you got nerve while u sightseeing in Paris to tel us”time to deliver” on health care. We still on skedul/even workingWKEND.

You think he's done? GUESS AGAIN!

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

Now I'm not saying that politics is becoming more and more ridiculous. That it, in turn, becomes increasingly difficult to take these people even remotely seriously -- even as villains. I'm just saying that politics is becoming more and more ridiculous and that it is increasingly more difficult to take these villainous creatures seriously.

I mean seriously, dude, seriously. I looked you up, you got a Master's Degree in 1956. Come on...skedul? Really? skedul? WKEND? U not you? Delivr, you couldn't throw in that extra e? Too much? Honestly? Honestly?

Is this how congressmen talk on twitter? Because I've done some research into this twitter matter, and while it's ridiculous anyway you look at it, some people do write properly on it. As evidence, might I submit Stephen Fry? Or perhaps fellow Stephen, last name Colbert, when he writes: Racial tension is on the rise in Switzerland. Conditions have risen from neutral to ambivalent.

Nothing wrong with that twitter post, it's even somewhat amusing. Then again, I suppose if Mr. Grassley wrote semi-coherently, then that would take a few extra seconds and make him look like some kind of damn elitist. Because there is obviously nothing more contemptible than having fancy gramer and speling and punshuation.
