‘Jeopardy’ superstar claims responsibility for Chuck Grassley’s tweets

As Twitchy readers are well aware, we’ve spent a good chunk of time puzzling over Senator Grassley’s, shall we say, interesting Twitter technique. He’s certainly had us scratching our heads on occasion, but that’s been part of his charm. Say what you will about his tweeting style, but Grassley has proven his worth outside of the Twitterverse as a diligent truth-seeker in the Fast and Furious investigation.

Now that record-breaking “Jeopardy!” champ Jennings has stepped forward and jokingly claimed responsibility, suggesting that Senator Grassley is mentally impaired, is he also willing to admit he’s behind Joe Biden’s staggering garbage heap of gaffes? Because we’re pretty sure that Biden’s got Grassley beat in the WTF department.

    Now is the time to expose Ken Jennings for the fraud that he is. If you ever get a chance to see his first win, they rerun it on Game Show Network and it may be elsewhere. He should have never won the very first game.

    It was Final Jeopardy and the Answer was something about a female, US Olympic sprinter. The correct answer was Marion Jones, only Jennings wrote merely “Jones.” They don’t allow only a last name as a correct question in Double and Final Jeopardy.

    In other words, the fix was in. He was “given” the win by the show. So did he really have all that info for the however many shows in a row he won? Who knows. He’s a FRAUD.

    Grassley does do his own Tweets. Has from the very beginning. He was using Twitter before it was cool to use Twitter.

    So Jennings went from famous “Jeopardy” champ to… this? Oh, I’m sorry, he also faded into obscurity during the years in-between.

    Oh well, nice to know that being a “Jeopardy” champion doesn’t equate with writing clever, timely tweets. What’s next; a “don’t taze me, bro” joke?

    If you actually go read Ken Jennings’ tweets, he’s pretty darn funny. He has a great sense of humor!
