Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, known far more for his cryptic/baffling Twitter account than his profound political assessments, added another puzzler to his canon over the weekend. In an interview with Des Moines' NBC affiliate, WHO TV, Grassley declared that, given New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's "physique," "wouldn't it be kind of nice to have a guy like him sitting on the pot" when Washington blows up?
We have no idea what this means. But we do have some theories.
Here's the clip, via Daily Caller. Grassley's comments — which, we assure you, contain no other context — begin at about the 3:30 mark.
One thing for sure about, uh. Just look at his physique, you know. When Washington’s ready to blow up, wouldn't it be kind of nice to have a guy like him sitting on the pot?
Theory 1: Chuck Grassley often says confusing things; this is no exception.
Fred and I hit a deer on hiway 136 south of Dyersville. After I pulled fender rubbing on tire we continued to farm. Assume deer dead— ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) October 26, 2012
Last December, Gawker outlined Grassley's 15 best tweets of 2012. The winner was the tweet at right, about Grassley and his friend Fred and a deer they killed. But it is also the exception to the rule, being understandable and actually conveying information. Unlike this one (#8) or this one (#14).
