How many right wing blogs are going to jump on this and use it as an excuse to be racist?

I've got hte over under at 5...

Oh wow. I would probably kill myself. I once hit reply instead of forward with an email asking my boss what he wanted me to do about the lady who wrote me asking if there was a cabin on a cruise we were running for her and her unhinged and abusive friend that we had banned from travelling with us...

I believe that was the exact language I used.

I spent most of the day trying to figure out if I should resign or not.

Lulz.  What's better is that it still works in that context.

Are the ellipses intended to convey a large number of zeroes?

If not, I'll take the over.

I'm not sure that's a typo after all.  In context, it totally makes sense.

"also a much n----r factor on the right"

Well they don't want to pay the bills. /sorry, really really sorry

I was surprised to hear that word (twice IIRC) in the first episode of Walking Dead, but fear not, the evil enunciater was promptly banged in the head with a rifle butt and had to chew off his hand.

Except bigger and the n-word generally aren't used in the same places in a sentence. There's a verb and... what is the n word, a noun or a pro-noun? Either way, it's an obvious typo and the correct course of action would be to notify the person who made the typo that they probably made a typo and let them correct it. I personally hope the poor guy doesn't get fired over just a typo on a social networking site. Happens to the best of us.

I learned a similar lesson when writing a letter to city Council. My signature was supposed to say "regards ", but it didn't and that's when I realized the G is right next to the T

Even in context, it doesn't make sense, so no.

This is making news out of absolutely nothing and probably ruining some poor guy's career in the process.

I thought that word was buried and eliminated from society.  How could it even come up by accident.  Drew should sell the fark filter code to twitter for billions.
 
2013-10-08 02:14:26 PM
I had something similar happen. I was texting my wife to ask her to pick up the kids after school but I accidentally wrote "you stupid biatch you ruined my life"
 
2013-10-08 02:15:10 PM
Sorry about the 'up yours, n****er'. Of course, you'll have the good taste not to mention this.
 
2013-10-08 02:15:57 PM
No option for a twitter filter?
 
2013-10-08 02:16:14 PM
A typo is news now? Sweet.

My favorite typo i when responding to a woman trying to say "How r u" and accidentally typing the "e" instead of the "w". Its especially nice  farked up when I do it and I'm responding to a woman who I've had sex with.


/Hoe r u...

Reason #273 why twitter is stupid: encouraging vomiting out bite-sized texts as official communication instead of press releases where more than one person might look it over.

The better question is how crazy left wing blogs would have gone if this typo had been made by a republican.

We still get people playing the Santorum "blah" card around here.

Yeah, that exact same thing happened to me when I was writing our government leaders, except I ended up using the "G" instead of the "T"

Could have been worse. He could have tweeted: "The President is definitely the _______ person when it come to our country's needs."

"N----r Factor" sounds like a lame Marvel team.

And I am now going to officially start using the "Santorum Blah".  I can't believe I missed that.

Somehow an appropriate accidental tweet when talking about the Right's reaction to the President. Who wouldn't think part of their resistance to Obama isn't based on his race?

The standard QWERTY Keyboard must have been designed by some republican knowing that sooner or later...

Jeeezzzz...  I was kidding.  It's obviously a typo and, hopefully, this won't ruin his career.  Only a moron (or a hyper partisan racist) would have a problem with this.

Honestly, text-entry boxes on web browsers, word processors, social media sites, and text messages should have a built-in feature that removes that word (and a few others, namely the "r" word and the "f" (epithet for gay) word).

There's no reason in 2013 those words still deserve to be used, especially when we have the technology to easily remove them from popular usage.

Very true.  But people have suffered for far lesser typos.  And more importantly, it's funny.

Oh please. If this was someone from the Bush administration, Al Sharpton would be calling for civil unrest. How come Al Shaprton never walks by an open flame? Sigh.

10/10, almost fell for it myself.
