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.
