Sen. Jim Webb has been many things: Secretary of the Navy, Virginia Senator, and a presidential candidate impersonated by Alec Baldwin on SNL, but now he also joins the club of great public pocket-tweeters. Deleted from his official account but screenshotted by Gawker, this misfire tells the accidentally wonderful story of a man. A man who won the Navy Cross and Silver Star for an extraordinary act of heroism that he would come to be mocked for after his awkward telling of it in a Democratic debate. A man who shortly thereafter dropped out of the race to be President. A man who had time on his hands, and was really, really excited about Christmas shopping.
