We don’t watch television news so Major Garrett isn’t as big a deal to us as he is to some people.

Still, the CBS News’ chief White House correspondent carries a big microphone – and in addition to his network gig he’s got a Twitter account which is followed by more than 80,000 people. So it’s not surprising more than a few eyebrows were raised when Garrett tweeted thusly this week …

Um … “shirty” business?

Garrett’s profanity-laced tweet has since been removed from his timeline, but the veteran reporter has acknowledged his missive was intended for another White House scribe.

“Monday before SOTU is always slow,” Garrett tweeted. “Pity. I was speaking to @JOSreports. He knows why. I hear S#%* is REALLY hitting the fan in Damascus.”

@JOSReports is Jim O’Sullivan, who earlier in the day accused Garrett of leaving “a┬áthing of Cover Girl on the WH press men’s room sink.”

Good Lord, ladies … fighting over Cover Girl?

Wethinks y’all should kiss and “makeup …”

Then you can both get back to kissing Barack Obama’s back side.
