(Newser) – Twitter might not be the best place to sound off about your deep-seated desire to, say, crash Mitt Romney's plane, but apparently lots of users haven't figured that nuance out, reports the Blaze. So one Todd Kincannon, a former South Carolina GOP honcho, is retweeting some of the greatest hits right along to @SecretService. And given that it's against federal law to make threats against "major candidate" for president or vice president, the crime could mean up to five years in prison. The Blaze has a list of the tweets; most are NSFW at best, so read at your own risk.

Why the threats? It will be 10X more satisfying to see Mill lose in November. He'll never be able to run for office against and Paul Ryan won't be able to hide what he's done TO his constituents. Word is, his constituents aren't to happy with the job he's done in Congress.

Good for Mr. Kincannon. That kind of thing is never appropriate.

That is the last time I go to TheBlaze. Their users who comment there are racist and ridiculous. How can you rage about the "left being full of hate and spouting lies" coming out of one side of your mouth, then saying "subhuman" "0bammy" "Obamaphones" "homeboyz" and all that other bullshit out the other side. WTF?
