Our state representative sure has a gift for offending.
Consider his latest tweet:
“Atlanta airport! .Where is Sherman when we need him ?”
Should we take that as a racial insult, since so many in Atlanta and their government are black? Would he like to burn them down? Would he like to don a klan robe?
Was he thinking at all when he got carried away on twitter? No more than usual, I suppose.
It didn’t reverberate well with his twitter followers. Here are some of their responses:
Understand ur sentiment – wd be humorous from most commentators, I suppose – but fairly inappropriate from a Member of Congress.
Could you be any more of a blithering jackass? I would like to slap each and every person that voted for you on principal alone.
Maybe with his “daughter”?
Dude, too soon.
A true southerner would never tweet that sentiment. Burning the south was a disgrace and un-American. Not funny!
What does that actually mean??
Congrats on writing a great house tweet!
Maybe that last one was from a relative.
If you look at his tweets, most of them are hyper critical of Republicans. Like this one after the recent Amtrak tragedy:
Our #transportation infrastructure is decaying,but GOP voted to slash #Amtrak budget just hrs after #AmtrakDerailment http://nyti.ms/1JgPewu.
It’s a knee jerk reaction with Democrats. Never solve a problem; just funnel more money into more failures.
Of course, Cohen will always speak up for baby deaths:
Politicians aren’t health experts shouldn’t get in between women&their docs. ICYMI I defended #womensrights http://bit.ly/1E5yIZl #abortion
And he likes to mudsling Republicans any chance he gets:
Chris Christie’s fresh humiliation: The new scandal that could finally put the kibosh on his presidential hopes http://www.salon.com/2015/05/08/chris_ch
I have to agree with the second comment on his Atlanta twitter. Why do we keep electing this jack ass?
