Python has had a built-in json library since version 2.6, released in 2008. Tweepy's tests no longer include Python 2.5, so they're no reason to use simplejson.

This also removes a complicated import path that made every instance of Tweepy attempt to import a module that's not in requirements.

This commit also removes the json library as an attribute of the Parser object. Don't know what it was doing there, besides being unpythonic.
