Missouri politician runner-up to Anthony Weiner on "Twitter loser" list

Missourians will find a familiar name on this list by The National Journal’s Hotline of “biggest Twitter losers of 2011.”

These are people in the political sphere who were tripped up by their own tweets. Number 2 in the countdown: Missouri’s own Peter Kinder.

The lieutenant governor’s indiscriminate tweeting has been known in political circles for some time. The Hotline covers some of the highlights:

Kinder never seemed to learn from his social media missteps, tweeting on multiple occasions about questionable things. In November, he re-tweeted a message about free wings at Hooters on Veterans Day while he was still considering a run to challenge Missouri Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon. It was far from the first time Kinder’s tweets were scrutinized. He had previously urged his followers to “vote for hot wife in the Top 25 Political Mom blogs” a day after Missouri was hit by the deadliest tornado in nearly 60 years and tweeted about “hostage situation” in a government building in 2009 only to later discover the incident never occurred.

1. He's not the brightest bulb.

I really wish he were gone and someone with a level head on their shoulders were in that office.
