Aggressive Twittering

[Hahaha. Icarus and I posted at the same time. Nice.]

Saying stuff on Twitter you probably shouldn’t is something I know about all too well.

A few months ago, we dinged Austin Scott for a rather graceless tweet about Eric Johnson resigning from the Senate.

Well, today Austin is getting aggressive with Karen Handel:

Just signed qtrly wage and tax returns. That is something Karen Handel has never done. Of course Karen wasn’t Deputy Chief of Staff either.

I wish they’d do this somewhere more observable by the voters than Twitter. It’s fun to see a candidate willing to throw punches out there and, whether I or you like the comment or not, it’s refreshing to see a candidate speaking his mind without the veneer of campaign diplomacy.

      Maybe he views her as coming in second. Georgia is unique in that all the candidates are really just competing for 2 slots.

  1. Icarus shouldn’t even be here anymore. I thought official make-it-up-as-we-go Peach Pundit policy was to ban front-page posters who repeat other people’s shamefully low-class tweets.

    What Austin Scott said/wrote is the truth. I just wish that he spoke about Handel’s resume enhancement…what is she claiming to have been? Deputy something or other for the Bush/Quayle White House? She was an intern, not someone who sits in on UN Security Council meetings.
    I would not say that Scott considers Handel the frontrunner, or Oxendine for that matter. I would say that if Handel or Oxendine, or Deal for that matter, is the GOP nominee, then many Christian conservatives will not cast a vote for governor. From all I have seen thus far, Scott is by far the best choice.

      Oh please.

      I’m not saying that Scott is or is not the best choice. I am making a little fun that if this person or that person doesn’t win the primary, Christain conservatives will stay home. Give us a break. BTW, I have read somewhere that there at least 5 families in Georgia who consider themselves Christain conservatives who vote Dem. I think that they are confused.
