Really? Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley has developed a Twitter following of more than 70,000 people, many of whom are hoping for the next classic Grassley tweet in the tradition of “Assume deer dead.” Sen. Mitch McConnell even pointed out Grassley’s social media skills on the floor of the Senate last year.
McConnell says "we're all familiar" with @ChuckGrassley's tweets. "Like the senator himself, they are truly one of a kind."

The question isn’t whether Grassley writes his own tweets — it’s that if he actually had a staff member composing them, why this guy?
@ChuckGrassley I have no doubt you do your own tweets.

@ChuckGrassley @WiseSoph I'd think the absence of grammar is pretty much a dead giveaway.

No one doubts you @ChuckGrassley. No one. Your tweets are a comedy writer's dream. Never stop.

@ChuckGrassley @wisesoph who in the name of the one true god could ever imagine a social media professional writing your tweets?
