State senator Dave Schultheis, one of our go-to guys when it comes to choosing a Shmuck of the Week, may have announced his retirement -- but that doesn't mean he's lost his knack for offending the sensibilities of anyone with a brain larger than an acorn.
Big Dave's started his own Twitter feed, and he was savvy enough to protect his tweets -- meaning only people he sanctions have access to his wit and wisdom. Trouble is, some of his approved readers think his words are so brilliant that they retweet them in ways that allow folks to find and post his missives on a Retweetist page set up especially for him. And recently, multiple users posted minor variations on the following message:
@Sen_Schultheis: Don't for a second think Obama wants what is best for U.S. He is flying the US Plane right into the ground at full speed. Let's Roll
Yep, Schultheis appears to have compared President Barack Obama to a 9/11 hijacker -- which would seem extreme coming from most people but pretty typical for him. Looks like he hasn't retired from making an ass of himself.
