Hennessy Fails at Another Attempt to Pretend He's Not Working for the GOP

Bill Hennessy wrote a blog post today where he riffs off the idea of "liberal whack jobs" accusing him of being a "Republican Party Tool." He basically uses this as a cheap way to provide structure to his article, arguing on the one hand that he's not a GOP tool, and on the other hand that he won't support the libertarian party. But, interestingly, he actually completely ignores the central claim of my article. His way of showing that he's not a tool is to point out that he doesn't like Newt Gingrich. But as I've already said, it's easy to pick on someone who lives miles away and doesn't actually have anything to do with the political system you are involved with to try to show how tough you are. But if Hennessy were really fighting for conservative values rather than simply carrying water for the establishment GOP, he would at least mention that Chuck Purgason (an actual conservative) is running against Roy Blunt (someone who does not fit with tea party ideals and actively dissed them on NY-23) in the GOP Senate Primary. Instead, Hennessy argues against a straw man who says there should be a "third party."

Once again, Hennessy proves that he's only interested in looking revolutionary while actually promoting the same old Republican Party. If he doesn't like me saying that, then perhaps he can explain why he's not willing to even mention the Republican Senate Primary.

  1. I've said it before and it fits once again...funny how logic frustrates these guys! You just simply point out the artifice of this whole tea party movement in St. Louis. Glad I'm on the other side of the state!
