Hoekstroika

Republican congresscritter Pete Hoekstra gave a new twist to restructuring, when he complained on Twitter, comparing the life and death struggles Iranians are having with Republican Victimhood.

The Pete Tweet:
Iranian twitter activity similar to what we did in House last year when Republicans were shut down in the House.
Not to be outdone, other tweets came in with similar really bad analogies:

Got a splinter in my hand, now I know how Jesus felt.

Someone walked in on me in the bathroom. Reminded me of Pearl Harbor.

Sitting in a chair, feeling a good deal like Stephen Hawking.

More Hoekstroika fun here.

Oh yeah buddy... I can tell just how concerned you have been about Iranians getting beaten and killed in the streets (by your loack of mention previously) and just how concerned you are that your favorite President has been less than supportive of those struggles you sarcastically refer to...He's banking on working out a deal on nukes with Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs... democracy is the last thing on His mind considering he's got a campaign to run.

Not one post on those "struggles" you casually blame Republicans for capitalizing on...nor anything the lack of leadership from the great leader of the universe Himself demonstrates the level of your hypocrisy.
