OK, so that just happened.



Careful there, Major.

Sounds about right. Garrett has already deleted the tweet. Unfortunately for him — and fortunately for everyone else — Twitchy is forever.

Major Garrett's shirty business

Inquiring minds wanna know.

That’s good advice.



Here’s Major’s explanation for the … outburst:

For the record, here’s what National Journal White House Correspondent Jim O’Sullivan was up to on this slow Monday:

Alrighty then.



Shirt happens: Twitterers try to make sense of Major Garrett’s shirty business

  • Nicky T

    At least he censored, “shitty”.

    • cluge

      You mean his “auto correct” did.

    • lainer51

      He works for CBS, I can only assume he thought “shirty” was the correct word.

  • JM_in_WASH

    Glad to see that even “journalists” aren’t PC…hehehe

  • thetawake

    Nothing lends credibility to an argument like foul language.

    • Kevin Krom

      F*** yeah!

      • thetawake

        Twitchy always cheers me up. I’ve been feeling pretty shirty all morning. :)

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

          • WisconsinPatriot

            NO! That thing is just…….creepy!

          • lainer51

            i.e. Barney Wank.

    • Jim Crosby

      Foul language is for the f*nking birds

      • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

        don’t forget the angry birds, those bahstahds deserve it too :)

        • bluewaternavy

          or the REALLY pissed off pigeon on my window sill.

          • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

            lol those are stewing pigeons……poor mans stewing beef :)

  • Joe W.

    What was “shirty” about it, Major???

  • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

    his dry cleaner must have really pissed him off. nothing is worse than shirty business.
    I’m not f*ing kidding

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      aww someone downvoted that?
      that was comedy gold people…
      HA :)

      • lainer51

        “someone” i.e. lib – HATES humor

    • NavyCombatCorpsman

      Hahahaha I guess so huh?

    • Mark Peacock

      That there was funny, I don’t care who you are!

    • Jim Crosby

      A shirty lawsuit is bound to follow

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      LOL some good stuff here people, keep it coming :)
      we’ll lauder this problem for sure :)

      • Frank Drebin

        Garrett tried shifting the focus to the fighting in Syria

        You know where al-Assad keeps his armies?
        In his sleevies.

        ha! Shirty joke, I know…

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

          LOL armsome…I mean awesome

    • bluewaternavy

      Must have put extra starch in the tighty whities

    • lainer51

      I agree… really ticks me off when that shirty business goes on at work…

  • Steve_J

    I thought Garrett had more dignity than that.

    • http://saoproductions.com Steve Overstreet

      No one on TV has class anymore it seems! News, entertainment or any part of it. SAD!

      • tredglx

        That happened many years ago, Steve.

      • monkkey

        The f word is always acceptable in business situations…ask any banker, attorney, or accountant…

        • http://www.facebook.com/john.p.rathbone John P. Rathbone

          If you have something important to say… saying the f word will get everybody’s attention.

        • Jim Crosby

          that’s right, anyone who can screw with the public; glad my proctologist is aphasic

    • http://twitter.com/DebbieSG Debbie S. Gibson

      haha why would you think that?

    • monkkey

      The Major may be slapped down to a Corporal after this tyraid…

  • tredglx

    Shirty business, he says…. I’ve got it!

    He’s leaving CBS to become a men’s haberdasher.

  • http://apostrophejones.com/ Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Sorry, Maj.
    Won’t borrow your stapler no more.
    Signed, Charlie Rose

  • Political Liars

    Sounds like someone’s account was hacked.

  • RockyGMarshall

    Someone slipped him a real question to ask at the next briefing,oh dear.

  • mcdonnal

    Foul language is the crutch of a conversational cripple..

    • Joninwm

      Or perhaps in this case is was more of a crotch than a crutch.Hey it’s right up there with shirty business you know.

    • bluewaternavy

      I’d usually agree, but sometimes you really need a colorful metaphor to get through to some people.

  • happytexan

    the Anthony Weiner hacker strikes again!!!

  • Joninwm

    Maybe the cleaners ruined one of his dress shirts, because you know how shirty business can be in places.

  • V the K

    Follow up message, “I mean it, mom. Don’t f–k with me.”

  • magnolia3

    What exactly is Garrett talking about here? It would be great to have some context.

  • Chet Field

    Now his explanation is also deleted?

  • Joe

    Major doesn’t work for Fox News anymore??

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      been 18 months or so ?
      I forget exact date.

  • blueniner

    Was he a real Major, Major Leaguer, or a majorette?

  • Bill Frazier

    Profanity is a sign of ignorance…I rest my case.

    • Ted Yost

      It can also be a sign of total frustration with obtuse ignorance.

    • Bill Steward

      It can be… But in the case of Major, I’d blame frustration over ignorance….

    • Elan Redrell

      You are sofa king shirty!

    • el_polacko

      nonsense…the most informed of people can use so-called profane language to express themselves in terms that are comparatively stronger than by the use of more gentle language.

  • http://www.insomniaclibertarian.blogspot.com BruceMajors4DC

    If only slip ups like this were the typical sins of the lame stream media.

  • Allan Howell

    See what happens to journalist at CBS…They get shirty.


    Pope to resign….Rumor is…. next Pope to be from Africa….Pres. Obama submits cover letter, resume and original birth certificate….

    • Jim Crosby

      If that happens, he’ll be forced to talk to his girlz about contraception and Obamcare

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Isn’t the Pope required to be a man…biologically I mean.

      • lainer51

        ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • RightThinking1

        Well…, that’s just not fair.

    My, my, Anchors have thin skin don’t they.

    • NewsJet Magazine

      I was about to say the same thing hell it’s not like he can’t afford a Crown on the
      rocks ya know i heard Fox pays pretty good.

  • louisk

    Are people vocabulary constrained. Really, there are some quite cool words in the english language that will work great for everyone. Even the kids. Then again Sarge may have some intellectual shortcomimgs that does not allow him to better use the english language like the rest of us

    • NewsJet Magazine

      pleasure to meet you folks we agree maybe boy’s night out might help and little Country Dancing.

  • geronl

    Nothing makes you look dumber than you might be than foul language, especially pointlessly foul language.

    • NewsJet Magazine

      the guy had a bad shirt day I agree it does not do one any favors dumping sand in your Ice Cream … just a little more constraint until you get to the Cotton Eye Joe ya think…….

  • unklbrad

    It’s presumably somewhat better than sharty business.

  • http://twitter.com/CindyMalison55 Cynthia Malison

    Just what is shirty business? Should I search Urban Dictionary?

  • Liars Never Win

    Someone file a story critical of Obama?

    • Guest

      His disciples would not dare…
      he is their Supreme Lord,
      AND controls the drone air force.

  • Mark Beach

    Gawd, I hate spell check…shirty, shitty..whatever.

  • therantinggeek

    The shirt’s about to hit the fan…

    • bluewaternavy

      and it won’t smell too good, that’s for sure..

  • bluewaternavy

    My wife has a point: is “the fuck I am” really him channeling his inner Yoda?

    • NewsJet Magazine

      whatever trips his trigger your wife is funny

  • https://www.facebook.com/jon.a.hartz jonhartz

    “A thing of Cover Girl”? Probably “Creamy Natural #120”

  • MomsUnite

    Better shirty than sharty business like our pal Al Roker…..

  • poljunkie♪


  • Maxx

    Sounds like they put too much starch in his dry cleaning.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ronnie.cagle.7 Ronnie Cagle

    Who cares?Why is this even relevant?

  • dareisay

    What’s he mean about “it’s about to hit the fan in Damascus “?

    • lainer51

      he was trying to justify his “indignation”, hence, his foul language…. just a diversion, as always.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    I’ve seen “shitty” self-censored like “shirty” before, but sandwiched between two uncensored f-bombs? Shows how smart LSM “reporters” are…

  • Mekadave

    “Major Garrett’s Shirty Business”…. sounds like a standup comedy tour or a 1970’s screwball comedy movie

  • Peacelanese

    Too much starch. He was DMing his dry cleaner people. “shirty business”

  • SineWaveII

    “Shirty business” was he tweeting his laundromat?

  • RichInIowa

    Major Garrett proves once again that he is a Man’s man — no shortage of testosterone!

    Don’t !@#$ with the Major!…

  • lainer51

    Just took my dog out to “do his business”… unfortunately I stepped in it and now have shirt on my shoes.

  • VL123

    I remember when Major was legitimate journalist at FNC…now he’s off f’ing around at CBS. lol

    • Guest

      yeah that was really shirty of him…

  • Restless_1

    Uh, “maybe it’s Maybelline”?


  • Nomasidiotas

    ??? What is the context? This makes no sense. I do not watch CBS. All I know about Major Garrett is that he was a journalist at FOX News who was repeatedly and publically dissed by the Obama White House, as all FOX News reporters were and are.

  • BigSky1970

    Major Garrett’s “Anchorman” Ron Burgundy moment.

  • Sandra Foky Binder

    Pope resigns… Obama accepts applications for a Catholic Czar from Pelosi, any Kennedy and Joe Biden

  • NewsJet Magazine

    Who is Major Garrett anyway and as far as we are concerned with regard to one’s point of view so what it’s an opinion what administration anyway Nomas put it out there sweet heart smells like Red Meat…

  • DANEgerus

    Now that Major works for CBS he can tweet the f-word

  • http://www.dontneednostinkinwebsite.com/ Midlandr

    Who is this foul mouthed fool?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004785969670 Hal Burton

    Come on people! He’s a Major! Cut our military a break.

  • Bristel

    When the shirt hits the fan…

  • Gary Michalosky

    Is he talking about Al Roker being at the White House?

  • BeeKaaay

    See, he was taking some anti-constipation pills and now pooped in his pants.
