Most Useless Politician Welcomes Pope To Twitter: ‘U Will Find It Useful And Interesting’

Post image for Most Useless Politician Welcomes Pope To Twitter: ‘U Will Find It Useful And Interesting’

The most useless and uninteresting politician on Twitter, Chuck Grassley, welcomed Pope Benedict XVI to Twitter today, tweeting “U will find it useful and interesting.”

Note, Grassley didn’t even include the Pope’s Twitter name in the tweet.

The Vatican formally announced Pope Benedict’s new, official Twitter account today, @pontifex. He will begin tweeting in eight languages (not Latin) beginning December 12. The Pope has already attracted almost 90,000 followers in the few hours since the announcement was made.

Grassley, a Republican U.S. Senator from Iowa, is best-known for his inane tweets that feature odd misspellings, fact-less attacks on President Obama, and overall “incompetence,” as this article from Mashable in April noted:

Sen. Chuck Grassley is probably among the most inept Twitter users on Earth.

From multi-tweet diatribes against the History Channel to pontificating in the form of single consonants (“P,” the senator from Iowa tweeted on Saturday), Grassley provides a lesson in how to reach viral fame through sheer, unrivaled incompetence.

For someone who is such a traditionalist, why isn't he tweeting in Latin only?
