As Long As He Has a Twitter Feed...

"As long as he has a Twitter feed, she has a chance."

My favorite overheard comment at Netroots Nation, said in reference to Roxanne Conlin, a Democrat challenging Chuck Grassley... a senator with a habit of shooting his mouth off online. Taking on an incumbent is rarely easy, particularly when you"re likely to be out-spent five-to-one, but in this case at least there's apparently a chance of a self-inflicted Macaca moment. Perhaps he'll take the opportunity to invent a new word?
