A lot of people whinge about how useless Twitter is and what a waste of time it is, and, generally, they are probably right; however, personally, I have been using it as an exercise to try and condense my normal, verbose writing style, with occasional success. For example, I never would have written something nearly as concise as this on this weblog:
Apparently Vice President Joe Biden thinks women are too stupid to use a firearm liberals want to ban because it is too easy to use.
(Exact verbiage changed a little to help flow and remove hashtags.)
Sure, it may not be the most graceful of sentences, but I dare say it adequately sums up this bout of verbal diarrhea from Our Glorious Vice President:
If you want to protect yourself get a double barreled shotgun. Have the shells, a 12 gauge shotgun, and I promise you… I told my wife; we live in an area that’s wooded and it’s somewhat secluded. I said Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony put that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever is coming in is not going to… you don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.
Of course, it is also worth noting that break-action 12-gauge shotguns have significantly stronger recoil than .223 rifles, warning shots are, by and large and possibly universally, illegal, discharging a firearm at a target without first identifying your target is inherently unsafe and can also lead to criminal charges, and discharging a firearm into the air is also generally illegal and patently unsafe.
In other words, Vice President Joe Biden is an ignorant, misogynistic imbecile, and in so being, he remains what he always was – assassination insurance for Our Glorious President.
