Say what you will about the relative merits of social media platforms, but this was one of those exchanges that can only happen on Twitter. The subject was the New York Yankees’ visit to the White House in celebration of their 27th World Series championship. The interlocutors were yours truly and the Olbermanniac. For those who don’t know, Suzyn Waldman is the native Bay-Stater who, inexplicably for so many reasons, does color commentary in the Yankees’ radio broadcasts:
KeithOlbermann Of course my pal Suzyn Waldman is lined up directly camera right of the President’s microphone
DanFosterNRO Of *course* Olbermann would be friends with Waldman. Bad enough she’s from Boston.
KeithOlbermann @DanFosterNRO, Where do you think Scott Brown is from? AZ?
[He walked right into that one.]
[Weeeeeak. Plus, the Babe was from Baltimore.]
UPDATE: This is much more fun than listening to Chris Dodd and Mark Warner yammer on and on about financial reform:
