A Public Service Announcement for public officials saying stupid things on Twitter.

  1. Don’t.
  2. If you do, don’t delete the Tweet once it blows up in your face.
  3. If you do, don’t then claim that you were hacked once your deletion of the Tweet that blew up in your face blows up in your face.
  4. If you do, don’t then delete the claim when it blows up in your face.
  5. …Look, just get off of Twitter, OK? Bad Idea. Bad idea.

PS: I’m being merciful by not mentioning the person’s name, yes.  I have these urges towards kindness, from time to time. Or maybe I’m just finicky that way.

#rsrh A PSA for Republican operatives.

You want to tell me how great your candidate for RNC chair is?  Excellent!  Make your pitch.

You want to tell me how awful somebody else’s candidate for RNC chair is?  …well, there are a lot of people out there who I am sure will be happy to take that call.  I ain’t one of them.

PS: This rule will also be in effect for the 2012 primary season.

PPS: No, I’m not going to name names.

PPPS: I am, of course, happy to see any evidence that a Democrat is involved in skulduggery.
