Iowa Senator Joni Ernst Accidentally Tweets Congratulations to Losing Hawkeyes

She blamed it on her staff, of course.

Twitter is a great way for politicians to keep in touch with their constituents, effectively communicate thoughts, or to get really embarrassed, really quickly. That's what happened to Iowa Senator Joni Ernst, who sent the following tweet out moments after Michigan State's 16-13 win over Iowa in the Big Ten Championship Game.

It was quickly deleted, of course, and a typical politician's apology was issued (she blamed her staff), but the damage was already done. God bless the internet!
