I Love Twitter

I really really do. It is catnip for Lefties to make those nasty snap remarks that show how they truly feel, how they denigrate others and they finally are getting caught at it.

Case in point: President Christina Kirchner of Argentina, who is in China to beg the Chinese to loan her bankrupt philosophy country billions of dollars, couldn’t resist sending out a Tweet mocking Asian accents

(Bloomberg) — China’s social media users turned on visiting Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in outrage, derision and to demand an apology after she published a Twitter post mocking the Chinese accent.
Fernandez replaced r’s with l’s in the tweet after she met with Chinese business leaders in Beijing during a trip aimed at raising investment in the recession-hit South American economy. “Did they only come for lice and petloleum?” Fernandez wrote in Spanish on her Twitter account yesterday, before saying “Sorry” a minute in a separate post a minute later.

Here’s the original text:

Más de 1.000 asistentes al evento… ¿Serán todos de “La Cámpola” y vinieron sólo por el aloz y el petlóleo?

I’m sure there will be some interesting conditions on this loan…

    Nothing says “smart diplomacy” like insulting the people you’re begging to give you billions of dollars to bail out your economy.

    I find it helps to think of social media as a gun pointed at your head. Yes, I’ve made my share of dumb comments over time but I don’t do that any more. Think twice.

    That’s why I avoid Twitter, period, Dr. Alice. It ain’t worth it.

    It’s nice to know that high officials in other countries can be just a stupid as our own Smart Diplomats(TM).
