Official Worst Tweeter Chuck Grassley today further proved his technological ineptitude, when in the middle of his own speech on the senate floor, the senator's iPhone began to ring, interrupting his discussion of some unspecified "standards."

You keep doing you, Chuck Grassley. Your foibles never fail to amuse. [BuzzFeed]

Update: The senator does not say "fuck," as previously reported. He mutters "doggone it."
