Major Garrett’s embarrassing tweet inspires ‘Writin’ Shirty’ rap

When CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett’s profanity-laced tweet went viral this morning, I opted not to make fun of the guy. We’ve  all done it before –  accidentally sent out a tweet that was intended to be a DM, realized our mistake, and quickly deleted it. Fortunately for those of us who aren’t part of the twitteratti, we’re able to quickly delete the message and most every one is none the wiser.

Even though Garrett’s tweet was especially embarrassing, out of respect for a fellow journalist, I decided not to participate in the stone throwing, so to speak. But then I heard Misfit Politics founder Brandon Morses’ “Writin’ Shirty” rap, and it is just way too good not to share with the world. Sorry, Major.

Warning: Morse’s rap is (if not more) profanity filled than Garrett’s inspirational tweet. You should probably put your headphones on to listen to it if you’re currently at work.

    Another type of person I do not trust he sat at Fox took the paychecks then I think it was CBS offered him more money he goes to MSNBC and talks about how Fox is decisive and dividing the country and how they are Polarizing the nation .. I hear far more hate and trash talking from MSNBC then anywhere else and as for trying to divide the nation ? I think FOX is about the only source of getting the other side of the kool aid is poisoned story out . ‘The mere fact that Obama Hates Fox and tried to sneak around them or as a last ditch effort just barring them from any press conferences that they can tells me they are hitting a nerve ..
    Like a wimp buddy that runs and leaves you alone to fight the 3 drunks in a given bar (: Not enough nerve to stand and fight when push comes to shove..News prostitutes are what they are..
    I’ll never trust what he may report in the future and I’m happy he is not at Fox Like a Republican that jumps to Democtatic ideals or vise versa it that just tells me they just want to get sneaky like a wolf dressed as a sheep.. I never truth them again.. .
