McHenry update: suspicious finances, Iraq, Gonzales, & your hometown drug store

McHenry and unknownI know you haven't gotten your fix lately of my main man. Life is getting a little uncomfortable for the little guy. Here's the latest:

Caldwell County Republican Dennis Benfield (a Pat Go Bye Bye fan), has posted on his website and written to the Hickory Daily Record that, according to public documentation, Pat's recently acquired net worth far exceeds his reported income. It raises quite a few serious questions.

And Betsy Wells and Beth Sibley of Cleveland County wrote an exclusive report of McHenry's Thursday night town hall. How to sum it up? I'll list a few highlights

  • He said Bush should have dismissed Gonzales a long time ago.
  • He blew off local pharmacists anxious for his help but tried to get them to name the staffer who'd told them that protecting hometown pharmacies were not a priority of his.
  • He told the aunt of a three-tour Iraqi soldier that although he honored the troops (no idea how), it was not his career choice in his twenties. When she asked why didn't more congressmen have children serving, he just said, "I don’t have any children . . . yet." He said he hopes to have children some day "after I meet the right woman." [Yuuuuukkkk.]
  • He is confident oil drilling of the NC coast would have no leaks, be invisible to tourists, blames the lack of sufficient refinery capacity on trial lawyers. He supports a bill to limit appeals in such cases.

And my favorite weird moment: McHenry abruptly ended the meeting when a Viet Nam vet asked, "What does a terrorist look like? Describe a terrorist for me." Pat stared blankly for several uncomfortable moments and then indicated that he would take no more questions. The event was advertised to extend until 9 p.m.

You guys should be ...

Mine won't.

What have YOU done today to elect a Democrat?


What have YOU done today to make the world a better place?

I wonder how it feels to be a laughingstock?

The guy can barely go out in public without embarrassing himself. I guess that's what happens when your career of choice is to be an apprentice liar to Tom duh Lay.

Report is in progress but last night in Lincolnton

Patty got asked about the unexplained increase in wealth. He denied it all (after a moment of shock) and then insisted all questions be in writing. HA!!!!

Look at the kool aid-drinking Lincolnton paper coverage. They surely went overboard. I've heard, but not had confirmed that the publisher had a company called Tech 5, with McHenry. They shut down their website after Lay was indicted but I've linked to the archived stuff.

Our client list includes notables such as U.S. Representative Cass Ballenger, Citizens for a Sound Economy, NC Rep. and House Appropriations Chairman Debbie Clary, NC Rep. and House Education Committee Chairman Mark Hilton, NC Rep. and Connie Wilson, N.C. Rep. Patrick McHenry, N.C. Rep. Tim Moore, N.C. Rep. Julia Howard, N.C. Rep. and House Republican Leader Joe Kiser and others. It should also be noted that our clients in the North Carolina House have all been appointed or elected to leadership positions fairly quickly once entering office.

Oh, the meeting in Cleveland ended at 8:35

That got edited out by mistake. That's why it was so weird that he ended it when he did and after such an easy question.
