Richie Incognito Got Tired of Living Up to His Name via Twitter

NYDailyNews incognitoA long time ago, Miami Dolphin (really effin’) offensive lineman Richie Incognito created a viral poo-poo storm when he blasted his teammate Jonathon Martin on the Twitter when he deemed that he should be worthy of stricken with the worst carpal tunnel in the history of ever with this family-friendly tweet:

“Hey, wassup, you half n—– piece of s—. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s— in your f—ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your f—ing mouth. [I'm going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F— you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you.”

Since then, Richie Incognito has been a skosh of legal trouble, sent packing from his NFL job and hired a PR team. He has been advised by everyone in the world to shut up, but meh? A guy’s got to vent right?

Spinning Election Night Results

Communications teams are still spinning results from last night’s elections, in which Republicans won governor’s races in New Jersey and Virgina. Republican Michael Bloomberg was re-elected as New York’s mayor, in a race that was much closer than expected. In a highly publicized special House election in upsate New York, Bill Owens defeated Doug Hoffman, who had drawn support from Sarah Palin and other conservative leaders.

Some media reports say the losses in New Jersey and Virgina are a “setback” for President Barack Obama, especially in New Jersey where Obama campaigned up until the last minute with incumbent Jon Corzine. “Neither race should be viewed as strictly a referendum on Obama. But if there is a danger in overinterpreting off-year elections, it is also a mistake to underinterpret,” wrote Politico’s John F. Harris & Jonathan Martin.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended the administration this morning, saying that the losses in VA and NJ, “didn’t involve the President,” and that results showed it was “pretty clear people went to the polls and voted for local issues.” The Washington Post‘s Howard Kurtz thinks we’re all overreacting. “…let’s face it, there’s a huge hype machine out that’s been pumping up the national significance of these off-year results,” he wrote today.
