Dallas Woodhouse and his Twitter War Team Screwed the Pooch

Dallas Woodhouse and his motley band of Twitter warriors screwed up in epic fashion last night. After rallying the crowds of Facebook to follow their Twitter War Room during the DNC last night, Woodhouse and his team failed to exercise basic common sense before attacking Tim Kaine during his speech.

The results:

That's right. The NCGOP is more concerned with a tiny piece of metal worn on the lapel than real issues facing North Carolinians every single day.

Of course, no telling what Woodhouse and crew were drinking along with the pizza they enjoyed in that smoggy, poorly lit dungeon of a room.

A reasonable conclusion might be...

Some could infer from their behavior that none of them have deployed family members.

Typical NC...

"conservative" knee jerk reaction.

It speaks volumes that someone is distracted from real issues by a lapel pin and the percieved national slight of a flag lapel. Where are the adults cause they seem AWOL.

The story of the Honduran Flag worn by the honorable father of a US Marine and candidate for US VP will live longer on Fox News and in the minds of GOP'ers than the OOPSEY!!!

They must have been too busy checking out other people's genitals in public restrooms to do proper research.

Not to anyone in NC. Well, I guess we could exclude the NCGOP and its followers. ;)

Don't they always? Careful and deliberate consideration before acting on their emotional impulses -- you know, what responsible grownups do -- is not exactly the Republicans' strong suit. It's almost like their frontal cortex, where impulse control lies, just never fully develops. It's like they live in the perpetual mindset of a surly teenager.

Donald Trump lives in the perpetual mindset of a surly teenager.

So do his voters.

This tweet, and the GOP's refusal to apoplogize for it, are completely typical of the kind of losers running the NC Republican Party right now. These are not rocket scientists, folks. These are the obnoxious, socially awkward boys everyone hated in middle and high school... the self-important blowhards who lost every school election they participated in... who could not get girlfriends or into the college of their choice because they had no self-awareness of how dumb they really were... the kind of whining losers who went on to second rate colleges where they joined third rate frats, drank the...See More

They did not "mistakenly" attack Kaine. Dallas Woodhouse and his merry band of Twitter warriors intentionally attacked Kaine - the father of a Marine who was honoring his son by wearing a Blue Star lapel pin.

John Keller Is that your defense of the NC GOP claiming the Blue Star Service Flag is that of Honduras? If so, "stupid" and "moronic" would be apt descriptions of it.

This is an example of what I call the Junk Rule:

If you can make the argument about a guy's junk or his gun collection, threatened masculinity or lack of patriotism or religious fervor, you'll usually win.

In other words, social dominance hierarchy.

Then you trot out Rudy Giuliani aka Subject/Verb/9-11 to defend Donald Trump's call for Russian cyberespionage.

Nice.

What.....a.....bunch.....of....IDIOTS! Other than the fact that both the flag and the pin are rectangular, they don't even REMOTELY resemble one another. Congratulations NC Republicans.........Yet another public display of stupidity by the morons in running this state (into the ground)!

They didn't...

...even take time to proofread their "apology".

As the Executive Director of the North Carolina Republican Party, we offer our sincere and unqualified apology for the mistake made on Twitter last night regarding Gov. Kaine's lapel pin. The tweet was wrong on the facts, wrong in tone and should not have happened.

We would like to offer a sincere apology to Senator Tim Kaine, his family, and his Marine son who is honorably serving overseas.

The members of the staff that were invoked are facing severe internal sanctions and mandatory retraining.

When we learned of our mistake, we immediately took steps to rectify it. There are now procedural measures in place to make sure it does not happen again.

While I did not see or authorize the tweet, as the Director of our organization I take full responsibility for our carelessness.

Again, we are incredibly thankful for the service of Sen. Kaine’s son, and all United States military, past and present, who fight for our freedom.

We demand accountability from our elected officials and our government. Those standards apply do and should apply to us as well.
