Dear John Oxendine, Get the Hell Off Twitter

You are embarrassing yourself.

“The 11th-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions are set to tangle with the 13th-ranked LSU Tigers in the Capital One Bowl from Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando.”


Note to the Ox, the Dawgs played last Monday night against the Aggies in Shreveport, LA in the Independence Bowl. They won.

Lawton points out that UGA played Michigan last year. So, um, what the hell? Was he googling to put up something sports related?

This is like him tweeting a few weeks ago that he was in church singing. First, even I don’t tweet once the service has begun and second, he was tweeting at a time the church in question was not having church services.

UPDATE: The tweet and its corresponding Facebook entry have both been deleted. Ox will now claim it is a Peach Pundit conspiracy and no one should read Peach Pundit.

    Wasn’t Georgia ranked number 1 in the polls at the start of the season that this game was played in? Foreshadowing?

  2. LoyaltyIsMyHonor says:

    I know it’s only Jan. 1st, but this will probably be in the top 10 for one of the best threads for all of 2010.

    • IndyInjun says:


      I agree.

      Ox would like to delete it…….or stretch the authority of the Insurance Commissioner to regulate blogs.

  3. Briardawg says:

    Where must you be sticking your head if you thought after this past football season Georgia would be playing in the Citrus Bowl? I mean, really?

  4. Medic8310 says:

    Wish all the candidates would stop tweeting everything. They sound so fake when they tweet. Famous quotes, bible verses, the links to positive editorials on the candidates, praises to local GOP’s and DEM’s for putting on such a great meet-and-greets, poor attempts at being sports fans, and the pathetic and desperate last minute fund raising pleas! THEY ALL SOUND FAKE!! Graveling and pandering for support has reached a new low with this group of candidates!

    • Medic831, I agree 100%. It’s a phony attempt to make someone appear to be politically intelligent with a higher intellect than the average Joe. I never paid much attention to it until this post.

      I’ve seen some of it from a person running for a seat here in Middle Georgia. This copy and paste crap is ridiculous. Frankly, I think it makes the candidate look like an idiot and will wear him/or the audience down. Perhaps we should take bets on who will tire first.

  5. macho says:

    Ox is really just a poor imitation of Clinton. Neither has any true core values. He just behaves the way he thinks will get him the most votes. Since he and his staff always seem to be slightly off on the mind of the average voter, Ox comes across as a characterture of a politician.

    He happens to spout out a lot of regurgitated conservative crap, because he lives in a red state. Put him in San Francisco and he’s fighting for gay marriage and reparations.

    The trouble is the Ox, and his nerd herd campaign staff, don’t know a single thing about sports. There are not enough voters who appreciate fine wine, caviar and broadway plays; so they branch into the unknown fields of sports. They know the average Joe watches some sort of simulated field combat called American Football, so they’ll Google the two home state squadrons every week or so and plagiarize a sports writer on Twitter. Can’t wait to see the twitter posts on the high-performance automobile races at the Atlanta motor track and the Greco Roman championship between Mr. Flair and Mr. Hogan.

    He’s probably got a campaign staffer trying to locate Boss Hogg and Uncle Jesse in South GA to secure their endorsements.

  6. Ludwig Von Beachbum says:

    I have never cared for Ox and I have met him twice at dinner and once sat next to him. I think he acts like a spoiled rich kid and could even possible have a few gay genes. I think he could lie at any given moment and would make one of the worst governors we ever had. With what he has already done it is hard for me to believe no one ever started the ball rolling to remove him from the office of insurance commissioner.

    With that said…

    It is starting to look like he is being attacked here by the powers that be to help another candidate. I get that from when something negative is said about the sacred cow, post are reduced to click on’s and the red numbers appear.

    Oxy is a big enough jerk, in time he will reduce himself to human garbage . No need to cheapen this place by making it look like the sacred cows constant email solicitations for money.

  7. willow knows all says:

    Erick, I thought you were representing Christian values and that includes your foul language.

  8. MasterHiggins says:

    I marked him as spam with the never ending emails. Gee dude your like those Viagra emails. On and on and onl and on. enough.

  9. Jeremy Jones says:

    Politics as usual.

    You will notice, I do not, often, post things about my family, my church, my interest in a particular sport or team. None of that matters when running for office.

    If me being a UGA fan, or not, was fundamental on how I would serve the people of Georgia, then I think it would be appropriate.

    With that said, I still do have a business to run, so, on Twiter and FB, you will occasionally get an update in that regard, but nothing more.

    Obviously he is not a college football fan at all, which is fine, until you try to imitate a football fan to garner votes.

    Now, I know within an hour or two, I will get a phone call from the Ox camp telling me, as they have before, I should not be commenting on another race. Before you do call, know two things, first, I won’t be in today, I have wedding to perform, second, I am a Georgia resident, and I will be voting in July. That gives me as much right to comment on the actions of the candidate. If he would not do things like this, I would not comment.

  10. As a proud graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, I would like to state, once and for all, that I support the Dawgs in every game they play – whether or not I watch the game, or even know about it, and regardless of when it is, was, or will be played.

    • LoyaltyIsMyHonor says:

      Wow, that’s a first. A candidate pandering on a thread that’s criticizing a candidate for pandering.

      • B Balz says:

        If you know Chris, as I do, this is humor. But wait, no mention of Stormy Petrel love? Egads, man!

  11. I highly doubt Oxendine knows what Twitter is really, much less how to use it. The real question here is, who is the idiot campaign staffer and why would Oxendine keep someone around like that?

    • Hit submit before I meant too;

      I expect candidates to surround himself with the type of people who he will bring into office when elected. If Ox is rolling with a support staff that can’t get a google search right, then I am 100% positive I don’t want those people working in the Gov.’s office.

    • macho says:

      If he’s obsessed with something as pop culture as the Academy Awards, then I feel confident he knows how to use Twitter.

  12. macho says:

    Please tell me this jackass is not going to be our Governor. I can’t deal with 4 years of lame attempts to seem like the average guy. Surely he would become a national embarrassment before his term finished.

    • macho says:

      Do you remember those old WWII movies, when the American Soldiers would come across someone claiming to be an American; the first thing they would ask them is “who won the World Series.” This was a test to see if you were a spy. During WWII, if you claimed to be a GA Citizen and a huge Dawg Fan, but had thought they already played their bowl game, the soldiers might have shot you for being a spy.

  13. IndyInjun says:

    Ox went from impersonating police in pursuit to impersonating a candidate.

    The closest he will come to seeing the checkered flag would be if he could see his checkered past.
