Remember republicans: apologizing and changing strategies is for pussies, fags, and commies. Always double down, always stick to your guns.

Don't let anyone use that fancy book-learning and nerdy analysis of voting trends nonsense on you. You know in your gut you are the best, and deserve to win. Just keep pushing guys!

Yes, it still looks exactly like Tara, doesn't it Dan?

Yes, that joke is inappropriate because Trayvon Martin was black. Joking about a DEAD KID sucking dick for money would be totally reasonable if the kid were white. No one would bat an eyelash.

@6, he never would have told the joke in the first place if it were a white kid.

Furthermore, Trayvon Martin wouldn't be dead if he were a white kid.

That tweet sucked more than Robert Downey Jr's portrayal of Rush Limbaugh during the blow jobs for oxycontin scene.

That last tweet is so whiny conservative: He said a offensive thing, and now his feelings are hurt because somebody took offense.

Conservatives are horrible people.

Wow, this is like the Trent Lott fiasco. Us black folk weren't surprised that he was a complete racist piece of shit, just that he so readily admitted to being a racist piece of shit. That said, tweets like that coupled with the "Let's Try to Relate to Brown People on a Plantation" summit is a nearly unprecedented level of tone-deaf ignorance.

Deep in my soul I want to hope that a fairly prominent local figure just had his account hacked or that at the very least he was simply off his meds. But my head knows that it was probably just an average tweet from another drunk-ass redneck.

Not that it matters, but was Martin an "admitted drug user"? The authorities at his school supposedly found a baggie with trace amounts of marijuana in it, but those records were supposed to be sealed, he was never arrested or tried for a drug possession charge, and I've never seen anything where he "admitted" to smoking pot to any authority figures.

If I'm not mistaken, not only is Kincannon a scumbag racist, he's also a liar and a fraud. *insert obligatory lawyer joke here*

I refuse to be a twitter outrage junkie.
Twitter is the sewer system of human discourse and given that folks are using it for spite, provocation, and the like makes these brouhahas a total waste of time.

Wait, wasn't Trayvon Martin the teenager with the hoodie and the bag of Skittles who got shot?

Sorry, it's just been a while since I've had that much stupid in one dose. I actually had to pause to reboot.

1. Why the heck is he cheering that an innocent kid is dead, 2. why does he think this won't offend the people whose good opinion he's trying to court and 3. why does Trayvon Martin performing sex acts even occur to him at the Superbowl anyway?

@2, 12,

Also wonder if this racist prick Kincannon ever smoked a cigarette or drank alcohol before he was of legal age?

Both nicotine and alcohol are drugs, and if he used them before he was old enough, then he's also an illegal drug user.

Not that it matters to the south. Travon Martin was black, that's the only thing they really see.

Although I doubt they will take advantage of the opportunity: a former plantation can be a good place to learn something about the awfulness of slavery in America and some of its many consequences.

@13 except this 'brouhaha' involves the former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party so the people of south carolina might find your outrage useful.

He does have a point in his last tweet: I don't think people should tell him not to tell racist jokes. He should be encouraged to loudly bray his racism at every opportunity.

These people frighten me. But at the same time, the more they "pledge to avoid the rhetorical missteps", which is another way of saying "we ain't changin' nothin' 'cept the way we say it", the more this party is truly doomed.

Yes. Keep ignoring and insulting women, homos and non-whites, you fucking moronic throwbacks, straight through to 2016 and beyond. Please.

I'm an admitted drug user too. Occasional enjoyment of ethanol, caffeine, and theobromine whenever I can get it.

Fucking hell, this Kincannon spud is a real loser. What a racist asswipe.

They had a number of "rhetorical missteps" this cycle. We got to see what they're made of. Rethugs need to learn to lie better is my take-away from this plantation agenda.
I wonder how soon they'll have those minorities believing their lies again.

Democrats have met there, too. There's a lot to be pissed about, but that's not one of 'em.

Dan, can we santorum this guy? I don't want to give him more attention than he deserves, he's obviously a nasty troll not fit to smell my cat's shit, but what if his name was synonymous with fingernail mites or something?

@30, it'd be a lot easier to take you more seriously if the rest of the GOP, SC and otherwise, weren't just like this guy.

Wow... I just navigated here from reddit.

Someone submitted this SLOG post to reddit and the link is currently on reddit's front page (it's at number 8 for me right now), via the politics "subreddit":…

There are nearly 1500 comments in the discussion thread there at the moment (of which as many as 10% are relevant to the topic!).

Twitter to Wonkette to Slog to reddit. Thousands upon thousands of views within hours. This Kincannon scumbag just fucked himself royally.

But thanks for being honest about how you really feel, Todd!

Hey GOP dumbass. You can and do say whatever you want. I just can say anything *I* want about the dumbass things you say. You seem to believe that you should also be free from the consequences of your speech. Don't say dumb things = don't get mocked by teh internets.

This was seriously the guy? I can't imagine someone saying something like this other than as a prank on someone else's account because they know how absurdly terrible it is. If that was really him saying this of his own accord...... I mean......

Ahhh. Todd Kincannon simply wanted to "offend people in order to teach a lesson" with his "satire".

Kincannon whined his way through an interview on HuffPost Live a few hours ago:

Alyona Minkovski: Do you feel like apologizing? Do you have any remorse for this tweet or no?

Kincannon: Absolutely not.

@38: Yes, in 1860 the Democrats were racist conservatives and the Republicans were abolitionist liberals. We know. Things have changes since then, and it's been completely the opposite for the past 50 years.
But good luck trying to paint us as wacko racists or whatever. Projecting much?

So sad and disgusting. This guy needs to have a filthy sock stuck in his mouth, for a few hours, for what he tweeted. The GOP needs to ditch him--wait--nm. He's good. We need more like him to keep Dems in office.

I love it when you talk like this, Todd. Please keep it up. Ignore all that "damage control" advice and continue to alienate your base. (You already lost the rest of us, check the recent election results if you've forgotten that). Many Republicans are bailing fast because of idiots like you, Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann, Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin, to name but a few. Keep spewing, sweetheart. This will ensure you never get another Republican elected into the White House. Woohoo! I'm thrilled.

What a despicable piece of trash this person is; I can't believe he made those comments... That sock that someone suggested they put in his mouth for a few hours should be shoved down his filthy throat and left there for good!
