Either Herman Cain is fascinated by “Twin Peaks” or his Twitter account has gone rogue.
The former Republican presidential candidate and Fox News contributor has been sharing links from his website, hermancain.com, to Twitter, but they’ve been accompanied by stills from Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Showtime series “Twin Peaks.”
The Tea Party activist tweeted an image of Bobby Briggs and Sheriff Truman on an article relating to Al Gore’s comments on global warming. The tweet is captioned, “Al Gore Fighting global warming is just like abolishing slavery.”
Another, pertaining to Sen. Rand Paul’s take on the healthcare bill, is accompanied by a photo of the show’s Dr. Jacoby, as he records an internet show.
The text reads: “Rand Paul: McConnell doesn’t have the votes to pass healthcare bill…again.”
The same images can be found on Cain’s homepage, too. The site is a political outlet — geared toward the right — that features different writers.
As TheWrap points out, a story about a possible senate run from Caitlyn Jenner contains a reference to David Duchovny’s character, Denise, who is transgender.
TheWrap’s Carli Velocci also reports that the “Peaks” photos often somehow relate to the content.
The tweet juxtaposing the conspiratorial Dr. Jacoby and the healthcare debate links to an article discussing conspiracies about John McCain’s surgery and the state of healthcare.
In it, the author states how he has trouble believing a wide conspiracy about McCain’s procedure and its presumed obstruction of the healthcare vote.
“Even for an obstructionist, that seems…extreme,” the hermancain.com article reads. “However, I have no problem imagining Mitch McConnell taking advantage of McCain’s medical issues and using them to buy a little time…I’m 100% sure he’s happy to exploit that. This is particularly true if he was certain he didn’t have the votes needed to pass it this week.”
