'Carmona Facts' Twitter Account Is Interesting And Potentially Comedy Gold

Posted By on Wed, Sep 5, 2012 at 12:15 PM

It looks like former U.S. Surgeon General and current Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Richard Carmona has his own personal Internet facts database swarming up, not unlike Range superstar Chuck Norris. The catch here is that the "@CarmonaFacts" Twitter account looks to be filled with things that are actually true from Carmona's history — no "his beard exists only to hide a third fist" nonsense here.

It starts off with his record in Vietnam:


Then gets biographical:


But lately, the staff seems to be reaching a bit for facts:


I'm not necessarily trying to make fun of Richard Carmona here — I generally refrain from mocking anyone who has been part of a special forces unit, and therefore likely subdues bobcats by wrestling them before throwing them over the fence — but this has such great comic potential I'm surprised there aren't yet parody accounts, for both Carmona and his Republican opponent Jeff Flake.
