Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is Harry Shearer, comedic genius for so many reason.  Spinal Tap and his million voices on the Simpsons to name a few.  If you haven’t heard his radio show, Le Show, what the Hell is wrong with you?  Let’s see what secrets his Twitter account holds.


January 8th:  “Oops, now Santorum denounces Obama’s “secular ideology”. Don’t tell the Pakistanis.”

Santorum gives a bad name to frothy fecal matter.

January 8th:  “Leon Pannetta on “Face” re: Iran: “Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No.””

And when I say, “No”, I mean, we’ll have to think of another reason to bomb them.

January 8th:  “Will NO and DC facilities talk nicely enough that Le Show will be heard today? Stay tuned.”

Well, there’s always your handy website.

January 8th:  “Answer: Yes. Whew.”

The Internet strikes fear in other media again!

January 8th:  “I had me scared for a minute.”

You know, his Twitter feed is even better if you read it in Smithers voice and end every tweet with “sir”.

January 9th:  “Just askin’™: did the new, newsier CBS This Morning mention news that Leon Panetta said on CBS ystdy that Iran’s not seeking a nuke weapon?”

CBS is to news what Alzheimer’s is to memory.

5 hours:  “Two days since Leon Panetta said on Face the Nation re Iran: “Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No.” Still not news?”

I’m surprised the news knows where Iran is.

Okay, let’s rate Harry’s tweets. Harry, like me, is a news junkie, so I gotta respect that. Insanity is 4 (as he is very sane). Style a 10 and Mustness an 9. That’s an overall score of 7.6, but I give him a bonus because of his Simpsons bonus, so let’s make it a 9. If you don’t follow Harry Shearer, you’re some kind of damned Communist. And you don’t want to be a Communist now. The Russians are out. No more Vodka or fighting James Bond. And if you have a suggestion for Twitter in Focus, email us here.
