Louisiana’s Senator (for now) Mary Landrieu faces a tough Dec. 6 runoff election against a guy who only came in 2 points behind her … when he had another Republican who took 12 points of the vote. So ummmmmmm … let me see … 12 – 2 = Landrieu go home?
On Wednesday, somebody tweeted something campaign-y on Landrieu’s campaign account. I say “somebody” because she’s apparently tweeting in the third person these days, which is either a sign that she has a mental illness involving delusions of royalty or else somebody besides her is using the account. Come to think … it could also be a combination of the two.
The tweet racked up Zero Retweets, which is kinda weird, since she is still a U.S. Senator … sort of … and only one Favorite from someone named JJ the Purple Twitter Egg, which is kinda weird, cuz Purple Twitter Egg?
Never let it be said that Conservatives never did nothing for ol’ Mary. Once they discovered the lonely tweet by her schizo-royal-ness’ imaginary handmaiden, they boosted its circulations via some well-deserved mockery. My fave:
@MaryLandrieu It’s like you already don’t matter. A lot like that. As your attorney, my advice is to drink heavily.
The Big Question in everyone’s mind today is not whether or not Mary Landrieu has become irrelevant. It is WHO is JJ the Purple Twitter Egg and why did s/he Favorite Mary’s lame-o tweet?
- A highly empathetic tweeter who can’t bear to see anyone suffer from Twitter Egg-itis (zero favorites).
- The last intern left at DSCC headquarters making sure all the lights are turned out.
- Mary’s other imaginary court handmaiden.
