Mark Kirk is a big hit in the Twitterverse. Ever since the congressman developed Munchausen’s Syndrome about his role in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Tweeters have been speculating about other military adventures he might have photoshopped himself into. As one put it, “Mark Kirk is quickly becoming the Forrest Gump of modern US military operations, popping up everywhere since 1991.”
@mattbramanti: Mark Kirk apologizes. Turns out he didn’t really pull Blumenthal to safety in Vietnam.
Mark Kirk was not the captain of the Starship Enterprise. He confused himself with another officer who has the same last name. (That was Ward Room's tweet.)
@KagroX: I’m hearing now that Mark Kirk might NOT have actually been a Knight of the Round Table, but did eat Thanksgiving dinner at the kids’ table.
@UnstableIsotope: Mark Kirk is Congressman of the Year
@HeyDigDiggy: Mark Kirk is not actually the Green Knight at Medieval Times
@joey_the_dog: Republican senate candidate Mark Kirk continues to honor our fighting men and women by pretending to be one of them.
