You’ll never guess who shows up in Hawaiian senator’s Valentine’s Day tweet! [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/allnewshawaii/status/434439861823881216

Oh, for the love of … seriously?

http://twitter.com/#!/maziehirono/status/434435916354961408

Now, granted, we’re guessing that in this case, it wasn’t President Obama’s decision to insert himself into someone else’s business (though you never know). Also, it looks like the pic is over a year old. But still. Even back then, he was everywhere. Will we ever get away from him?

Jennifer Lawrence and Hillary Clinton: Hair twins?

http://twitter.com/#!/GlenAllenWalken/status/440300360062619648

Hollywood darling Jennifer Lawrence usually dazzles on the red carpet, but her Oscar style left a bad taste in some fans’ mouths. Looks like her hair pulled a Hillary. Two thumbs down, say viewers.

Matt Yglesias’ observation about pay and performance triggers snark

http://twitter.com/#!/GayPatriot/status/491967221280034816

Matt Yglesias, executive editor of Vox, shared another attempt to “Voxsplain” an issue:

http://twitter.com/#!/mattyglesias/status/491959323783086081

Being overpaid while underperforming certainly isn’t limited to corporate CEOs, is it?

http://twitter.com/#!/RBPundit/status/491967538583339008

Oof!

http://twitter.com/#!/Beer__Wolf/status/491968436646715392

There are others, according to these tweeters:

http://twitter.com/#!/Mishak68/status/491962581179846656

Confirmed: You don’t have to be a corporate CEO to make good money while consistently underperforming.

‘What a blowhard’! Markos Moulitsas tells Jake Tapper how to be a reporter

http://twitter.com/#!/NoahCRothman/status/501800003980251136

He’s certainly a piece of something.

Markos Moulitsas can’t stand actual journalism. So when Jake Tapper tweeted this:

Markos got snippy:

Hey, genius, Tapper’s been there.

http://twitter.com/#!/jaketapper/status/501800874755497984

See, Markos, unlike you, Tapper actually understands what it means to be a journalist.

Bush 41 shows off his footwear for meeting with Houston Texans’ coach

http://twitter.com/#!/GeorgeHWBush/status/423572475117465600

Former president George H.W. Bush continues to impress with his crusade through the footwear fashion landscape. This time he’s sporting some sweet socks with the Houston Texans’ logo for a meeting with the Texans’ new head coach, Bill O’Brien. Bush is a big fan of the Texans, which must have hurt this year as they finished with a 2-14 record. (That’s why they have a new coach.)

http://twitter.com/#!/HoustonTexans/status/423580683575898112

He met with O’Brien last week:

http://twitter.com/#!/HoustonTexans/status/421743031352430592

The Texans’ account wasn’t the only one to appreciate H.W.’s efforts:

Jesse Jackson denies retweet about ‘half dead’ pope loving male â€˜booty’

http://twitter.com/#!/Stars_Insider/status/470372284922736641

On his best days, Jesse Jackson’s Twitter feed is an incoherent jumble of poorly phrased left-wing tommyrot. And then there are the days he makes use of the retweet button, sharing messages like this with his 40,000 Twitter followers.

http://twitter.com/#!/RevJJackson/status/470366773066219520

“I suppose u luv booty”? Step away from the Twitter, Rev. Jackson.

For the record, Jackson has tweeted praise for Pope Francis.

http://twitter.com/#!/RevJJackson/status/413391415704436736

But days after his retweet …

http://twitter.com/#!/akahnnyc/status/471064464289050624

The retweet first appeared on Jackson’s Twitter account on Saturday night. It’s Thursday and the retweet is still there.

http://twitter.com/#!/akahnnyc/status/471981434308022274

Heckuva job, Rev.

[Update]

Jesse Jackson wishes people would shut up about the pope-bashing retweet he still hasn’t removed.

[Update]

It took a while, but Jackson has finally removed the retweet from his feed.

Michael Moore ‘wowed’ by theory about US response to 9/11 attacks

http://twitter.com/#!/tinyrevolution/status/510106538111823873

The U.S. response to the murder or thousands of people on American soil should have been to do nothing and the world would have been better off? Interesting.

It even seems to have intrigued Michael Moore, so you know it’s nutty:

Wow. RT @tinyrevolution The U.S. would be far far better off today if, in response to 9/11, we'd done literally nothing.

Talk of Obamas’ glossy, perfect image inspires #Jodi Kantor Thoughts

http://twitter.com/#!/MinoWarrior/status/411680309373964289

Jodi Kantor, liberal New York Times correspondent and author of “The Obamas,” held a “Tweet the Press” session with NBC’s David Gregory Friday afternoon. Conversation eventually turned to the Obamas and the tightly controlled image they present to the public.

So, just what sort of images does Kantor expect? What should the “normal” Obama family look like?

http://twitter.com/#!/jodikantor/status/411618175302651904
