    In two exchanges or less.

    So I decided to be a smartass on twitter. It's not my usual forum for debate.

    I poked a liberal with this: ooh, a #HermanCain victory prediction...I like how you think.#turninitaroundonya

    He responded : It would have been less far-fetched if you had said Jimmy McMillan. And no, it wasn't clever enough to warrant its own hashtag.

    I said: well, if you leave a door open, it will be walked through. And as we have seen, stranger things have happened. #hashtagthis

    He said: Stranger things than Herman Cain winning the presidency? Ok. Like what? (This is where you compare him to Obama, right?)

    I said:Scott Brown took me by suprise, that's for sure.

    He said: No one who was paying any attention thought it was strange. Coakley ran no campaign. Gloat fail. Try again.

    Now, I remember the Special commentary Keith Olbermann ran, I remember Obama ran on Coakley's behalf and everything else. She was expected to at least squeak by. As far as i'm concerned, MA dems were taken by surprise. I'm not jumping through hoops for this asshole.

    So, I said: please bring back my golfcart after you're done #movingthegoalposts . Bye.

    And that's it. I didn't abuse or go any further. I gave a damn answer and if he doesn't like it, so what.

    Of course, he didn't like it.

    He said: answer the fucking question, you hack teabagger coward

    I said: I did answer , you deflected, I called you on it and you started the abuse. That's a lib tactic. :P #twocanplaythatgame // well, you went for the insults first.#clevernessfail

    He then said: Deflect! Deflect! You're ABUSING ME so now I don't need to answer your question! Common teabagger tactic. Put up or shut up.

    I said: I already gave you an answer, if you don't like it, your problem. I'm not your submissive, I don't respond to abuse.


    He's doing a victory dance now b/c I don't respond to abuse. . . I ended it with..

    http://politi.co/4C27VV , you were saying about failure? I tend to believe politico over a vebally abusive tweeter.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    You're both a couple of twits. :p
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    I don't understand the twitter.
    I have an account on there but rarely look at it.

    Can someone 'splain what is the deal with all the words with a # sign in front?
    a #HermanCain victory prediction...I like how you think.#turninitaroundonya
    Are those words with # in front what you are calling "hashtags"?
    What is the purpose of them?

    Yep... #--->word is a hash tag. It works as a grouping or a search function. Like, if a group of people on twitter decide to congregate on twitter and watch Glenn Beck together, they would make sure to include #GlennBeck in their tweets so that the other watchers could communicate with 'em easily.

    Or if you wanted to find tweets referencing #HermanCain , you'd search for it that way. :p

    Twitter more often to see how it works.

    I read twitter for

    • I honestly believe that Eliza Dushku can be redeemed, and I'm the man to uh, ahem, "exorcize" the liberal out of her.
    • Sterling Archer, my personal, animated, hero has a twitter feed full of tips on how to be, well "duh" awesome!
    • My coworkers set up a channel which we use to quote one another when we say stupid, out-of-context things that might be humiliating.
    • Noureen DeWulf sometimes posts a heads-up about photo shoots, and she's a lot less moonbatty than most in the Hollywood crowd.

    However, arguing on twitter is almost as bad as arguing with YouTube commenters. Let's just say that winning is like winning the argument is like winning the bronze at the special olympics.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
