Patrick McHenry lies at Lincoln County Speech

It appears that Patrick McHenry doesn't know when to hold his tongue in front of cameras. At a Lincoln GOP convention, a cameraman (possibly from the Sigmon for Congress campaign) recorded McHenry calling a solider a "two bit" because he was restricted from a green zone gym, and goes even further by lying about a death in the green zone.

Press Release:
"McHenry refers to military sentry as 'two-bit' at Lincoln GOP event, exaggerates story to include death"

Things are looking a hell of a lot better for both Steve Ivester and Daniel Johnson. Either Sigmon loses and weakens McHenry or Sigmon wins and we all get a fair fight (where we have a hell of a better chance of winning) without McHenry threatening any more individuals to support him "or else". Looks like good times on the horizon.

Gives new meaning to the term "pathetic"

Thanks for posting this. It looks like Sigmon is on top of things for his primary challenge of McHenry. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Does anyone think Pat McHenry was actually up early and going to the friggin' gym? The audience sure didn't seem to be impressed by his little fairy tale.

Frontpaged.

Now that takes the cake

Tom DeLay's mini-me calling ANYBODY, much less a soldier, two-bit. That guy is a real piece of work.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Tom DeLay's mini-me is a perfect name!

I don't know why I've never heard anybody refer to McHenry as Tom Delay's mini-me before. It's a perfect name for him! That fine majority leader inspired a whole generation of party hacks.

Duck and cover, my fruit-flavored arse.

He'd've crapped all the way up his back. And what's he doing over there anyway? It's common knowledge that young republics don't serve.

After McCain, haven't we had enough of junketing Congressfolk who are petted in the most highly-defended and highly-fortified areas in Iraq, just so they can say they went over there. Betcherass neither was anywhere NEAR where real struggle (and things going *BOOM*) are.

Disgusting hacks, the both of them, McCain and McHenry.

When is somebody finally gonna out that whining beeyotch?

William!

So good to see you!

After thinking about what you wrote, I'm pretty sure that McHenry was just sitting over here on the edge of Ft. Bragg, listening to the artillery practice. It rattles the walls some times. I'll bet that's what it was.

I cannot believe this jerk.

You know, even if the other Republican wins, we'll be better off without McHenry. How dare he call an American soldier serving in a combat zone a "two-bit" security guard? Pompous little prig.

McHenry calls a solider "Two-bit?"

Who the eff does he think he is? What an arrogant ass. Unbelievable.

A soldier doing his job. What does McHenry think? That people who don't recognize him should compromise security?

Help me here 10th district voters. How can you think this is funny? Critizing a solider doing his job in the Green Zone is two-bit? ANd you keep electing this jerk?
 
See Pat Go Bye Bye. Support Daniel Johnson.

Baghdad Bob McHorny War Stories?

In Baghdad, two people were killed and three were wounded, including a television cameraman, during a roadside bombing in eastern Baghdad. In al-Talbiya, two people were killed and 14 more were wounded during a bombing. Three people were wounded during an IED attack at a checkpoint in Qahira. In al-Mashtal, four people were wounded during a bomb attack. Two women were killed and a man was wounded when gunmen attacked their car. Also, four Iraqi soldiers were injured during security operation that netted 31 suspects.

Also reported was a battle in the Green Zone Sports Bar and Club Gym. A MP with the 101 st Airbourne said a young small man in pink undershorts try to break into the gym at the Sports Bar at 5 AM. When press for ID, he claim to be a American Congressman who was drug and kidnapped from a Gay Club in Washington by a group of Gay terrorists and stuff on to a private aircraft charter by the Blackwater air travel and tourist corporation. He said he was gag and bag on the trip and rape repeatedly by the flight attendents on the aircraft to Baghdad. Military officals are investigation the alledged hostage story by the Congressman. In the interest of National Security, the name of the Congressman will not be release until the owners of the private gym are paid for the services that were offer to the Congressman.

Hmmm

Isn't he supposed to be convincing us how much better things are in Iraq these days?

Today the Army Times reports that McHenry belatedly apologized.
