For those with tweeters’ block, a new website, That Can Be My Next Tweet, might be the answer. The generator pieces together words and phrases based on a Twitter user’s past tweets ... but often results in a nonsensical sentence.
Not that lawmakers’ tweets aren’t already garbled enough, but HOH couldn’t help but wonder: What happens when you run Members’ tweets through the magic machine?
Here’s a sampling of what could be more accurately described as “That Can Be My Next Sound Bite.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev., @SenatorReid): “I’m humbled by earmarks I was thrilled to BofA for nuclear waste. My thoughts, and a great bill to give!”
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn., @michelebachmann): “Today I called for yourself what you considered immediately: Read my colleagues.”
