Karl Rove Replied To My Twitter Post. Now What Do I Do?
One of the things that I like about Twitter is the opportunity that it gives you to directly insult famous right wing nut jobs (not you rwnutjob) without thinking that they will ever actually see or read it.
If Hannity tweets that Glenn Beck is going to be on his show I might reply, "That sounds like a real Mensa meeting."
Once, when Newt was going to be on Hannity I tweeted "Sean, don't forget to wipe off your chin afterwards." Hannity has over 18,000 followers. He'll never see what I wrote.
So what's the point? It's cool because you can be rude and obnoxious in a fun way. It's an innocent, childish activity, and they never reply... until today that is.
My new friend with his old boss. Another Mensa meeting.
Karl Rove "tweeted" a reminder to watch him on O'Reilly. I replied, "I was gonna watch you but I decided instead to drive nails into my kneecaps."
I didn't give my juvenile, smart-ass remark another thought until this morning. I was checking my email and there was the message: Twitter- Direct Message From Karl Rove.
My heart pounded. Is he pissed? Is he insulted? Is he sad? Did I hurt his feelings? Does he still have connections at the IRS audit department?
I went to Twitter and clicked to open the message. Rove wrote, "Ouch, that must have hurt."
Whether it was Rove or an assistant, I thought it was funny. I still can't stand Karl Rove but for a fleeting moment he made me smile.
The only reply that I can come up with so far is, "Thanks Karl. Congrats for avoiding jail so far." Maybe that's not in the spirit of his reply. I don't know. Any ideas?
