Jim Webb, a man who once watched the light go out in another man’s eyes after shooting him full of lead, is very excited for what he’s getting this holiday season.
Webb, who, lest we forget, still has a toe dipped in the warm sludge pool that is the presidential race, sent a tweet on Thursday night, sent a tweet out Thursday night with a giddy spree of consonants and a link to a tweet from GQ Magazine advertising a holiday gift partnership with Gilt. Or, more likely, an aide on the Webb campaign accidentally scheduled the tweet and forgot to change the placeholder text, and is now crying and waiting to be fired.
It’s not Webb’s first social media mishap — in October, his account sent out a tweet linking to a parody article titled, “Debate Preview: Why My Money’s on Jim Webb.” The piece was a sardonic ode to Webb’s “square jaw, burly muscles, and big heavy combat boots.”
The tweet has since been deleted. Webb’s twitter has now returned to its regularly scheduled program, the thoughts of a Public Servant, Author, Filmmaker and Warrior.
