Sounds like one to me.

I have found that Tweeting about masturbating is OK -- there are just some people who shouldn't be doing it.

Like, on a scale of one to ten:

Ryan Ryder<-------------------------------------------------------->Dua Lipa

I'll allow it with some folks.

"...and a third alluding to his masturbating to a photo of Gov. Kristi Noem."

Well, we avoided another Sinema, nice.
 
2022-03-04 5:48:38 AM  
the posts, which included....

Wow.
 
2022-03-04 5:51:55 AM  
In his defense, it's South Dakota. You can wack it to empty wasteland, rocks carved into presidents, or Kristi Noem.

Let he who has not wanked to your political opponents "cast the first stone".
 
2022-03-04 6:12:53 AM  
Alright. Let's see who is at fault this time.

"Ryan Ryder, who planned to challenge GOP Rep. Dusty Johnson"

What? South Dakota, why do all of your politicians have gay porn names?

You're not wrong, but there's a fair counterpoint to be made as well.

If Republican voters would've liked it, it must have been pretty bad.

Hi what's going on in this thread??

Assume everything you post is public. Assume those "sexy" pictures your partner takes just for the two of you will get out. Assume the prosecutor is keeping an eye on your social media. Assume the Judge is reviewing your google searches. Manage your digital image.

The real issue is there's two Dakotas. One is plenty.

In his defence the masterbation comment was to ridiculeba campaign shot of her looking like part of a cheap porn layout.  The damning thing was the fantasy of the anime deal about killing her.  While a GOP rep actually DID it, saying you'd like to do the same shows very poor judgement.

Nothing he said was really all that bad but I guess he figured Democrat voters would never forgive him. If you keep crucifying people for anything even remotely offensive they might have said online you're not going to have many candidates left to choose from.

1) Those tweets would not make any GOP candidate step down.
2) They are type of tweets expected from any farker.  what's this guys handle?
3) only silver lining is that the DNC can point to this as the evergrowing divide between the two parties.  but it is a moral victory only.z

Yes, he's a Democrat but since he's from South Dakota shouldn't he get a pass. This is sad considering how once upon a time South Dakota Democrats were exemplified by George McGovern.
 
2022-03-04 7:56:36 AM  
This is actually a win for the Dems.  Because the Dems look at that and say, "You, sir, are an idiot, and do not represent this party."  Because we hold people accountable.  The Republicans would have dismissed or buried this information until it came out, and then they would call it a political hit job.  No accountability.

Now, Dems, please find a better candidate than this jerkoff.  Pun absolutely intended.

At some point, we're gonna have to accept the sexy pictures and decide that maybe just cause someone showed off their private bits in a picture, they can still be an elected official.

Cause let me tell you about the younger generation...

I almost kinda wanna run for office just so my opponent could run ads with my fark posts in them.

Me whenever Kristi Noem speaks...

So I kinda agree with him. Just not in the way he was saying.

IIRC South Dakota's population has declined to the point it should technically  revert to being a territory versus a state?

Don't forget "If you would ever run for so much as a dog catcher, don't tweet anything that could ever be used against you publicly, or at least delete your old accounts before running."

Meanwhile, Paul Gosar...

Yanno, when Republicans have managed to inextricably entrench themselves deep into so many state governments and have passed so many laws there that there's legitimate reason to believe the 2024 election will be overturned if a Democrat wins, and LEGALLY so, maybe it's an u forced error to watch it all come crumbling down and say "at least we upheld standards we knew most of us couldn't meet"
