I think Phil Scott’s Twitter feed has popped a gasket

Until now, @PhilScott4VT has been a repository of fatuous truisms and sketchy statistics. But today, something weird is going on. Either the Twitter feed has been outsourced to a rogue fortune-cookie factory, or it’s simply gone off the rails.

Don’t believe me? Then explain any of these gems.

Today’s Special: Mixed metaphor Pasta.

Here’s a policy we can all get behind. And push over the cliff.

Yeah, incentivize our hopes. That’s the stuff.

Thank you, Captain Obvious. Please follow your own advice.

Now, some technology policy for our 21st Century challenges.

I gotta say, I’m impressed. It’s hard to fit word salad into 140 characters or less.

And now, fire up the replicator. We need copies of some needs and efforts.

Back up there, buddy. Didn’t you just say something about the importance of communicating?

Here’s some advice I wish he’d take himself.

Yes, we do have a great story to tell. So why do you spend so much time slamming Vermont?

And finally this, which will be the subject of a separate post in the near future:

Nice words, but that’s all they are. Phil Scott has shown no signs of taking “buy local” seriously. If a local product cost a dime more than an import, he’d opt for the import every time.

But hey, that’s just garden-variety hypocrisy, to be dealt with at another time. The rest of it? There’s a burning smell coming from the Phil Scott Twitter Machine. Maybe it’s something about technology clashing with the brain of an old-school contractor.
