Longtime Capitol Hill reporter John Bresnahan may have blocked me on Twitter. But that only means that I will make it a point to purposely peruse his feed every so often so see what kind of mischief he’s up to.

Well, on Monday morning he told House Speaker John Boehner‘s (R-Ohio) flack to “shut up.”

Before you get too too excited, it involves sports.

It’s not the most coherent of insults, but what the hell?

JOHN BRESNAHAN: “Eh, shut up shutting up!”


JOHN BRESNAHAN: “You know what you did! Retweeting that horrible Red Sox 2044 item. Shame on you [sic]”

Yahoo! NewsOlivier Knox wondered, “Bres, are you quoting the Bugs Bunny gangsters?”

Bresnahan replied, “Why, yes, of course. Everything worth knowing comes from Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Oscar Madison & Ralph Kramden.”
