Stupid Right-Wing Tweets, Ron Fournier Edition

They've spent so much energy on extremism that they've just got to make it pay.

To borrow from Charlie Pierce, this kind of tweet is The Thing That Makes Me Want To Guzzle Antifreeze.

After Friday's shootings in Colorado, you'd think perhaps a journalist would be interested in the truth, but Ron Fournier made an exception with that little golden tweet.

In fact, I've saved a screenshot of it in case even he realizes saying what he did makes him too stupid to breathe the air of ordinary people.

Planned Parenthood never, ever "sold baby parts." Informed people know this. The people who claim to be journalists ought to know it too.

David Corn tried to give him a clue, but Fournier was having none of it.

Fournier should just delete his Twitter now.
