On July 24, 2009, Sen. Chuck Grassley tweeted: "PTL BluDogs Keep barkin Pelosie bill is Govt takeovr of healthCare Breaks Obama promise"keep what u hv" Puts Wash Burocrats in chrg MUSTSTOP."

Sen. Grassley Has Abandoned Bipartisanship (And The English Language)

On July 24th, 2009, Sen. Chuck Grassley, ranking member on the Senate Finance Committee, tweeted the following:

Yet just weeks ago, when discussing his work with Sen. Baucus, Sen. Grassley said:

"I think we have a similar idea of what bipartisanship is all about."

Well, Senator, unless Sen. Baucus shares your view that bipartisanship is "all about" incoherently tweeting nonsensical half-words, you have lost the right to claim you're reaching across the aisle.

This tweet shows that Sen. Grassley has decided to cast bipartisanship aside by using standard-issue Frank Luntz talking points to disparage Speaker "Pelosie."*

*Note: I'm fairly sure Sen. Grassley doesn't know how to spell the Speaker's name, given that he misspelled her name "Pelosie" in two separate posts today.
