How do you spell ‘asinine’? D-A-V-I-D S-H-U-S-T-E-R
David Shuster, the know-it-all liberal who used to host some show on MSNBC, tried to give Twitter user @brento76 a spelling lesson about the word “asinine.”
“It’s ‘assinine,’ with 2s’s… not one,” Shuster smugly (and incorrectly) tweeted.
Naturally, friends and foes alike were quick to point out his error:
@davidshuster I’ve loved you since your days on Countdown, but it’s “asinine.”

Hoping to cover his tracks, Shuster deleted the tweet before we were able to capture it. Pretty sneaky!
Fortunately, we have @brentlo76’s screencap above, which is more than adequate. We’ll save it for posterity.
(Editor’s note: In the initial version of this post, we managed to misspell Shuster’s name. How “assinine” of us!)
