And Watauga Watch's Jerry Williamson, who is particularly interested in Virginia Foxx's own idiocies makes several points after reading the Gaston Gazette's analysis. My favorite was his first:
1. Republican House members were all over the steroids investigation in 2005, when they were in charge of running the place. Congressman Patrick McHenry, particularly, was avid in his grilling of Mark McGuire for alleged steroid use and basked in the media attention.And coming in a close second for me was the kind of turnaround for which Patty is becoming widely reknowned:
6. With the fall-out from the hearing turning very negative for Clemens and his Republican cheerleaders, McHenry tried to distance himself by saying that steroid use by professional athletes shouldn't even be a subject for Congress to examine, hoping that no one will remember # 1 above.
If writers like Derick Moss keep getting this kind of attention, and readers of the 10th start seeing this kind of analysis and follow-up . . . perhaps concerned constituents will be able to mount some serious challenges to the ludicrous, embarrassing and two-faced hypocritical jokes we currently for representation in US Congress.
With writers like Moss, McHorny would never get away with hiding his wild life in Washington from his fundamentalist Christian constituents in North Carolina.
