Dems Mock Kelly Ayotte over #FriedDoe Tweet

They quickly seized on the U.S. Senator's social media misspelling on Saturday.

A screen grab of Kelly Ayotte's #FriedDoe Tweet.
A screen grab of Kelly Ayotte's #FriedDoe Tweet.
Just call it the great #FriedDoe incident of 2013.

It all started with an innocent Tweet by U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) from the Deerfield Fair, a 137-year-old New Hampshire institution.

"Watching horse show at Deerfield Fair with my family. Fair is packed + we already had fried doe!" Ayotte Tweeted at 4:22 p.m. Saturday.

It didn't take long for New Hampshire Democrats to notice the Tweet and start poking fun at Ayotte.

"Beat this, Sarah Palin," Tweeted BlueHampshire.com cofounder Dean Barker just a few minutes later, along with a picture of Ayotte's #FriedDoe Tweet.

Barker soon followed that up with another Tweet: "Somewhere Scott Brown is furiously Googling New Hampshirey ways to cook deer, just in case. #FriedDoe #NHpolitics" It was a reference to Brown's dalliance with a possible run for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, where he owns a summer home.

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley fired off his own Tweet a couple of hours later: "@kellyayottte sing along: 'Doe, a deer, a female deer! Ray, a drop of golden sun!...'"

Harrell Kirstein, New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesman, also joined in. "RIP Bambi," he Tweeted at 8:06 p.m.

In Ayotte's defense, though, the words on the fried dough vendor booths at fairs and even at Hampton Beach do frequently use incorrect spellings like "Fry Doe."

At least one member of the Twitterverse – @sw0mp_d0nk3y – came to Ayotte's defense on Saturday.

"LOL since when is there spelling test on twitter?! Space is premium:)," he said.

Once again showing that the the so called "Love & Peace" hippy leaders of NH are just low class, mean, bullies!!!! Heaven forbid she misspells something...heaven forbid she is sharing her family fun day...evil Libs right there to judge & make jokes!!!!
Diane Raymond September 29, 2013 at 10:07 AM
Mean libruls! Mean mean mean. Know what's mean, ribbit? Not giving a flying fruitcake over massacred humans, but thinking that filling out extra paperwork for a gun purchase is a "burden." THAT's mean. Laughing over a typo is pretty much nothing, compared to that.
ribbit1070 September 29, 2013 at 10:14 AM
btw...it's liberals, not libruls :) What? Not funny?
ribbit1070 September 29, 2013 at 10:34 AM
Here you go Diane, this may explain something to you... Later I'll find you some 2nd amendment articles to read :) http://hampton-northhampton.patch.com/listings/blinks-fry-doe

I blame the public schools, Kelly is just one of a generation populated by uneducated individuals who don't know how to make change, and who don't know the difference between the words "doe" and "dough". Tsk, tsk.... ;)

Much Ado about nothing. When tweeting or texting, auto correct, auto spell sometimes change the text. Noticed after message sent.
Ben M September 29, 2013 at 05:51 PM
I had fried doe for supper last night. Good thing its almost deer season as the freezer is almost empty. Thanks Kelly.

I hope one day all of you can see how ridiculous your comments are.
gerald reed September 29, 2013 at 09:13 PM
Perhaps Ayotte should have written "fried do."
Greg Smith September 30, 2013 at 01:46 AM
Wow, some of you should find some way to relax.
Wendy Perez September 30, 2013 at 03:48 AM
Clearly a slow news day in New Hampshire. But she does look like a doe staring at headlights half the time. And her voice is all quivery. I never know if she's going to start bawling when she's speaking on television. Hope she had fun with her family.
Lawrence Baranski September 30, 2013 at 05:21 AM
Wendy, I'll bet you meant to write quavery.
Truth & Justice September 30, 2013 at 07:47 AM
Maybe when Kelly gets to the Emerald City she can ask for a brain.
Gabriel Barkin September 30, 2013 at 09:32 AM
"You had misspellings in your post, therefore I can completely ignore your ideas and insult your intelligence at the same time." ^^^How Americans debate in comment sections. (Often with one's own misspellings)
David Pittelli September 30, 2013 at 09:37 AM
If you're OK with the fact that your millionaire US Rep (Ann Kuster) was late paying property taxes on more than one New Hampshire property for several years, but you think a misspelled mobile "tweet" is worthy of contempt, you might have a problem with perspective and ideological bias.
Lisa Houston September 30, 2013 at 09:38 AM
This woman is a idiot her brains has been fried.

Donald Hunsche September 30, 2013 at 10:31 AM
Maybe she meant "fried doo".
Mike black September 30, 2013 at 11:41 AM
Is double posting the same thing to this forum as dumb as a spelling mistake, Lisa ? How do you spell Occupy, Diane ?
Michael McNeil September 30, 2013 at 12:47 PM
Guam is tipping over. Guam is tipping over. Ayotte is a RINO Liberal progressive.
Jimmy September 30, 2013 at 04:33 PM
It's not surprising that the folks representing NH and the rest of the U.S. of A. think we are idiots that don't have a clue, and continuously screw us over on taxes and healthcare issues and smirk at us like we are ignorant peons...........Honestly......read the responses above ........... You people sound like six year olds at the playground !!! That includes the morons that had the need to point out a misspelling by the Senator, which I am not a fan of, BTW..........Grow up !!! While you are pointing fingers over a misspelled word, they are shutting down the country and putting people out of work over needed healthcare services that, with-out them, we ALL end up paying for through higher premiums...........So, I guess they are right......idiots !!!!

If anyone who uses Twitter can attest to, due to the 140 character limitation per tweet, spelling correctly, vs a shorter phonetic sound of the word is quite common. She most likely ran out of room. Changing Dough to Doe kept her within her 140 characters per tweet. To suggest she can't spell, childish. Twitter is the poster child for taking longer words and shortening them to fit.
Diane Raymond October 01, 2013 at 07:03 PM
I sure do know how to spell O-C-C-U-P-Y, "Mike Black." Because I use my real identity, you can look me up and know that I am proud to have been involved with this progressive group. Too bad I can't figure you out since you aren't man enough to use your real name. I wouldn't use my real name either, if I was a troll being paid to say stupid things and intimidate people. That "I know you but you don't know me stuff" is pretty stupid. You'll have to try a whole lot harder to intimidate me. And Patch, do you really think people trying to intimidate other people is acceptable?
Seamus Carty October 01, 2013 at 11:36 PM
The same people attacking Kelly Ayotte for using doe in a tweet think it is crazy for anyone to point out their guy's mistakes such as "57 states", "Navy corpse-man", people "speaking Austrian", the intercontinental railroad, etc....
Truth & Justice October 02, 2013 at 12:09 AM
You may have a point Seamus. We should really be talking about Kelly Ayotte being asleep at the wheel when she was Attorney General in NH and the Financial Resources Mortgage fraud occurred which cost investors 100 million dollars. Really Convenient that the case "Never Crossed Her Desk". Let's forget about the small stuff and remember good ole Kelly for the big one that cost a lot of people everything. How did she come out smelling so clean? She seems to be attached to McCain at the hip. I don't think she is capable of free thought and hopefully she will be discarded in the next election.
Mike black October 02, 2013 at 05:58 AM
Mike Black is my real identity. Diane. I'm flattered that you've been trying to figure me out, do you want some hints ? And if you're do proud to be an occupier, who are you intimidated by someone mentioning that you are one of them ?
Seamus Carty October 02, 2013 at 12:46 PM
"I don't think she is capable of free thought" Ayotte votes with her party 83% of the time Shaheen 95% Kuster 94% Shea-Porter 95% Who was it that is incapable of free thought? http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/113/senate/members/
Tim Crowell October 04, 2013 at 08:39 PM
Government can't even run the post office why do they even attempt being a health insurance company get a good education and then a job and health ins comes very easy oh wait your demos you want me to pay for thar
Lori Mack Gilcreast November 04, 2013 at 09:03 AM
It's a "tweet" for Pete's sake! The days of the liberaks being kind-hearted and accepting has been over for a long time. I will take on anyone who has NEVER made a mistake or misspelled a word in their lifetime. Get over the nonsense!,
Lori Mack Gilcreast November 04, 2013 at 09:04 AM
And that would be "liberals", before someone calls me stupid because of a typo.......
