So apparently Donald Rumsfeld, the primary architect of the catastrophuck that was the Iraq War, has a Twitter account. For non-Reptilian people, yesterday was a very solemn day to reflect on the great shining lie that was the Iraq War, and to pay homage to all of the lives that were taken or ruined just so former Vice President Dick Cheney and his neo-con cronies could profit. In a sane world, one would expect the introspection and remorse to come from one of the pretend human beings responsible for the needless deaths of thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis. Nah, that’s like asking Congress to do the job that it was elected to do.
In what can only be described as the Twitter equivalent of former President George W. Bush’s Mission Accomplished banner, Donald Rumsfeld tweeted out the following:
Believe it or not, the Twitterverse did not greet Rummy with flowers and chocolates. Instead, they used the opportunity to express their utter contempt for Rummy and his despicable actions, including this writer’s fellow wisenheimer Rob Delaney, who appears to have generated the most re-tweets.
Good point, Rob. But you should probably know that Rumsfeld only started gargling blood after receiving this youth-preserving tip from his fellow 800-year-old dead vampire, Dick Cheney.
A majority of the Tweets were of the common “you’re a war criminal” variety, but you can view all of them in their twitterific glory by clicking here.
