Memory Lane Monday: Twitter Ends Another Campaign

Tweet only if you are taking the elevator.Not “necessarily” evil? Riiiiiight.The world has had numerous examples proving that politicians and Twitter don’t mix well, including today’s showcase of Dan Kimmel, the candidate for Minnesota’s State Representative that took just one errant tweet to torpedo his campaign.

Last November, the day after the Paris terror attacks that killed 137 and wounded 368, Kimmel tweeted, “ISIS isn't necessarily evil. It is made up of people doing what they think is best for their community. Violence is not the answer, though.”

After floundering a bit, Kimmel tried to make amends with, “My tweet last evening was in response to a statement made during the candidate debates, not in response to the activities in Paris. It was poorly worded and did not convey my intent.”Yeah, that will end a campaign.

He then followed that up with suspending his campaign to, “Remove the ick,” from his beloved Democratic Party, adding, “I will do everything I can to help resolve the issue: most likely the best thing for me to do is shut up. The tweet was stupid. I'm sorry.”

At least at the end, there was a moment of clarity.

Glass half-full, people.
