Todd Kincannon, chairman of the Simpsonville, South Carolina Election Commission, insists that his recent tweet saying that he hoped former football player Ray Rice’s “dumb bitch” fiancee “learned her lesson” when Rice “justifiably beat her ass”, was taken out of context.
“Sure, it was a single tweet,” said Kincannon, “but it was part of a conversation with some friends that we had in jest. I have nothing but sympathy for the dumb bitch.”
His Twitter account was also suspended last year after inflammatory remarks mocking the murder of Trayvon Martin, also saying that “transgendered people should be placed in a concentration-style camp”, and saying that it was a shame an Iraq war veteran turned anti-war organizer “didn’t come home in a body bag”.
“Am I a dick? Of course I am,” said Kincannon. “But we live in a country where assholes like me can exercise their right to be a total dick. Makes me proud.”
“The man is reprehensible,” said one Simpsonville citizen. “It’s a wonder these people have spouses, let alone children. He’s just as vile as that horrible fat bastard Rush Limbaugh. Or is that Ann Coulter? I always get them mixed up.”
Twitter said that they are considering suspending Kincannon’s second account, but Kincannon is not upset.
“I have an open invitation to host my own show on Fox News,” said Kincannon.
In other news, a belligerent old fart was spotted on CNN blasting away at former Press Secretary Jay Carney. “It was like they let a rabid dog on the set,” said Carney.
