Tea party activist, attorney and former executive director of South Carolina’s GOP, Todd Kincannon, decided to hoist his arrogant opinion of Wendy Davis into the public light. He took to Twitter, to attack Ms. Davis calling her a whore among many other references.



Kincannon is the intellectual equivalent of a kid with a scab, too stupid to stop picking it. Talk about moving the conversation forward.

He made a plea to justify his behavior to HuffPo.

“One of the best things about it is if you say something that’s borderline offensive or if it is offensive, the people that attack you and say just the awfulest [sic] things about you, they do the very thing that they accuse you of.”

His recognition that people often fail to elevate the conversation when provoked isn’t justification for bad behavior. It’s the equivalent of getting mad at someone for how they reacted to your burning their house down.
