None of the tweets I saw Sunday were as offensive as the one that resulted in Twitter reportedly closing the account of a man who wrote, “Dear @samsteeleponder: please Steve McNair @cponder7.”

She took him on with these words: “@mikeywaldo: to clarify, you want me to murder my husband bc you don’t like how he plays a game you watch on TV? Got it. #godblessyou.”

The twit who posted the McNair tweet said his account had been “rightfully” terminated in an apologetic posting on

This twit, who may have opened a new account under a different name, includes words of wisdom to the Twittersphere: “Lesson learned. Think before you tweet, and don’t be a jerk.”

Koch hosts debate

Former GOP Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch is hosting a ­political debate at the bowling alley bar she owns.

“Be sure to arrive early to the October 7 Debate @MapleLakeBowl. @RepRyanWinkler is guest bar tending before debate.,” reads a tweet at her @justamykoch Twitter account.

This is “The Inaugural Debate at Maple Lake Bowl,” according to a document attached to her tweet. The debate about the Minimum Wage will be moderated by Cyndy Brucato of and John Williams of WCCO Radio.

Koch was forced out of her leadership position, although she kept her seat in the Senate, after her affair with former top assistant Michael ­Brodkorb was leaked.


C.J. can be reached at and seen on FOX 9’s “Buzz.” E-mailers, please state a subject; “Hello” does not count. Attachments are not opened.
