From the Dallas Morning News:
Sid Miller's foul tweet calling Clinton the c-word, and his lame excuses, embarrass TexasTexas Agriculture Secretary Sid Miller has done everything he can to signal that he's for Donald Trump in Tuesday's election. But on Tuesday he so embarrassed himself -- and Texas -- that even the famously trash-talking Trump ought to ask him to sit this one out.It began with a terribly vulgar tweet sent out under Miller's name on Tuesday afternoon that referred to Clinton as a four-letter c-word. Miller came under immediate fire, of course. What he did next reveals much about his character. First, his staff took to Twitter to send a doubly-dishonest message under his name. It said "the disgusting re-tweet" had been removed. And alerted the world that his account had been hacked.Both statements were false.The account had not been hacked. And the offensive tweet had not been a re-tweet.Later that day, Miller's spokesman, a paid employee of the state of Texas, explained that an "over-zealous staffer" had sent the tweet. To further distance his office, and Miller, from the offensive language, the state-paid spokesman also explained that the staffer had "copied and pasted" the vile language from some other, undisclosed tweet that had so captured his attention he stole the language for use in the tweet that would go out under Miller's name."Not guilty by reason of plagiarism" is a new one on us...
Republican Mad Cow (or, as it has been known to medical professionals since 2006, Rovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) is a tough beat.
Nothing for it, really, but the rendering plant.
Or a bright future in the Party of Personal Responsibility.
