These sorts of pieces, which are more about narrative setting than anything else, typically dont contain a lot of new information, but this had one notable exception. About midway through, the usually guarded senator revealed that, just like fellow lone-voice-of reason-haver James Comey, he was the owner of a secret Twitter account.

What kind of quiche eating maggot replies in French?
This scumbag needs to resign ASAFP.
I noticed that too. Makes me wonder about his fancy airs.
It doesn’t effect my day one way or another knowing that Romney is on Twitter. Oh. Well.
I don’t Tweet, but many people do.
I don’t even have the urge to say “Ferme le Bouche!”(Close your mouth!).
Confucius Say: Que sera, sera!
Someone should hum show tunes around him and see if he hums along.
[singing] This is number four, and I’m sure there will be more...
[singing] This is number five, it’s too bad he’s still alive...
He did his mission work in France.
This one is the first of five (I think...):
Apropos of nothing, I think it's time to watch the original "Blade Runner" again...
