I didn’t go on Twitter to pick political fights. I’ve always been an opinionated guy, but I mostly wanted to make sports jokes. But the past four years have changed, and I’ve seen just how depraved the Republican Party is. And no man embodies this depravity better than Mitt Romney. The more I find out about him, the more I think he’d be the worst president since Nixon. So I’ve become increasingly prone to lashing out at Romney-supporting idiots.
One of those Romney-supporting idiots (actually not a Romney supporter but a nice libertarian who doesn’t sound like he’s going to vote for anyone) actually e-mailed me and I much preferred talking to him over e-mail than on Twitter. Also, the vast majority of my followers don’t want to see me get into spats with jackasses in my timeline. They want the football jokes.
So I’d like to announce my retirement from political arguing on Twitter. It’s not what that medium is meant for. If you are a Republican who takes exception to what I said, please e-mail me at robertbigwheel at gmail dawt com and I will show you how wrong you are there. In fact, the next time one of you is like “Actually there are 200 million uninsured people read drudge report” or some bullshit thing like that I’ll probably tweet you a link to this post.
By the way, you are wrong. I am right.
