We’ve already covered Neil deGrasse Tyson twice today, which, coincidentally, is two more times than you wanted to see the name “Neil deGrasse Tyson” today. But we’d never forgive ourselves if we ignored this.
As Twitchy told you, last night, Tyson did what he does best and tried to ruin something. In this case, the word “awesome”:
In my day, the word “Awesome" was reserved for things like curing Polio and walking on the Moon, not for food or TV shows.

He got smacked around by plenty of people for that one, but none of them left a mark quite like this one from former Dem Rep. John Dingell:

See, Neil? Now that is awesome! Dingell’s politics may suck, but you can’t deny the guy’s got a way with Twitter.
Drag him John.

It's important to me that John Dingell live forever

Also important? This exit question:
How is it that 90 year old John Dingell can own Twitter but no US Senator can understand Facebook?
