After calling a victorious Republican “a nice guy.” “A University of Georgia professor issued an apology to those he had ‘offended’ when he congratulated an old friend on becoming the state’s Republican candidate for governor,” Grace Gottschling writes on the Campus Reform blog of the Leadership Institute. “Charles Davis, dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at UGA, sent the offending tweet shortly after Brian Kemp won the GOP primary Tuesday night, noting that he had been friends with Kemp since childhood and considers him a ‘nice guy.'”

Here’s what Davis tweeted that drove liberals bananas: “I went to high school with GOP guv candidate @BrianKempGA. We played YMCA ball from childhood. Politics be damned. He is a nice guy, always was. Kind to a fault. He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er) and grey(er). That’s how all this should work, people.”
