Oh, the Twitter police! It is especially hilarious coming from an incessant tweeter. We can’t fathom the hubris it takes to mock others for wasting time on Twitter … while tweeting incessantly.
It is also a case of Smarter Than You (TM).
Having fun while trying to defeat Leftist false narratives isn’t serious enough for some, you see. We silly rubes need to grow up and learn how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. That is what smart people do.
Exactly. If we all don’t have some fun once in a while, we’ll end up curled up in a corner, weeping. And Twitter is not a serious political outlet? Really? Then why did Mitt Romney include Twitter the other day when discussing campaign strategy?
“We are behind when it comes to commentators on TV. They tend to be liberal,” Romney said. “Where we are ahead or even is on twitter and on the Internet.”
Perhaps the oh-so-serious thinkers should actually think once in a while. Or, you know, read up on things. Start with South Korea. Their elections may have upset wins due to what? That’s right. Twitter.
Americans on Twitter agree.
Bingo. When the media stops inventing narratives out of whole cloth in order to push Leftist political agendas, maybe we won’t have to push-back so hard. We won’t count on that happening and, in the meantime, we can have some fun while we’re at it. It’s called multi-tasking. We “non-serious wankers” are good like that.
Smarty pantsers need not apply. Just step aside and let the Happy Warriors take care of business. You’re welcome.
Clearly you care, Doug. But why are you wasting your time on things you don’t care about? You know, like Twitter.
Whoops! Not so smart, huh?
