Since we recapped Gerry Connolly taunting Jack Herrity (in Jack's OBITUARY)- let's not forget how he got another "Weenie of the Week" for his response to this blog in the newspaper when that happened:
""Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerry Connolly (D) was named "Weenie of
the Week" on Friday by a popular political blog, or web log, that each
week selects Virginia's biggest blockhead.
Connolly earned the dubious honor after the Not Larry Sabato blog (http://notlarrysabato.typepad.com) bashed the Democrat for supposedly seeking to make political hay out of the death of Republican Jack Herrity, who passed away Wednesday.
According to the blog, "Connolly, sporting the worst poll numbers for a Fairfax Chairman in over two decades, tried to begin positioning himself for re-election this week — by rewriting history about recently deceased former Chairman Jack Herrity — in Herrity's obituary."
“Not Larry Sabato,” Fairfax County political activist Ben Tribbett, quoted Connolly as saying about Herrity, "He was a political adversary, but he would do it more often than not with a certain twinkle in his eye. It was more the love of the fight than the substance of the moment."
In response, Connolly said no one should give merit to Tribbett's musings.
"Ben is an idiot," Connolly said. "Do you know Ben Tribbett? The guy's got some problems. Seriously."
