Bad timing?

If he’d waited a few more years, the influx of Somali “refugees” into Minnesota would probably have made this bit of verbal diarrhea¬†a feature, not a bug:

Minnesota Democrat ends bid for state assembly seat after sympathetic Islamic State tweet

A [Democrat] candidate for the Minnesota House ended his campaign Sunday, hours after he tweeted that the Islamic State group “isn’t necessarily evil” and its members were doing what they thought was best for their community.

Dan Kimmel, 63, announced the end of his bid for office on his campaign website and Twitter account. He said Saturday evening’s tweet was in response to a statement made during a candidate debate, not in response to Friday’s violent attacks in Paris that left more than 120 people dead and more than 350 wounded.

He said his tweet was poorly worded and didn’t convey his intent.

Sure it was. :-P (Presumably) deleted tweet found backed up here:


(How appropriate, that Minnesota calls its Democrats “DFL.”)
