The Ever-So-Dysfunctional Timothy Horrigan

by Rick Olson

“Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of (the Legislature); but I repeat myself. —Mark Twain 


The Dunce of Durham, Rep. Timothy Horrigan

Timmy HAD TO KNOW when this UL Editorial hit, we here at the Grok would be all over it. This editorial…”Civility in question: Rep. Horrigan shamed again.” So we all have to ask…”what drew the ire of the Union Leader Editorial pages?”

Seems its nothing new for Timmy…the same thing he resigned over the last time: Making bothersome comments,  to be kind and judicious.

In 2010, Rindge DemocRAT Keith David Halloran quipped on his Facebook wishing that Sarah Palin and her daughter’s former boyfriend were the victims in the fatal plane crash that killed former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens. Timmy Horrigan chimed in with, “Well a dead Palin wd (sic) be even more dangerous than a live one…she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn’t (sic) commit any more gaffes.”

Alas, we visit this issue again….The Union Leader writes,

   “One would think that he’d have learned his lesson. Not quite. On Wednesday night Horrigan, who was reelected, forwarded from his Twitter account a joke in which the writer expressed hope that former Vice President Dick Cheney would shoot conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. That raises so many questions.”

So now we see a pattern emerging where the smug idiot from Durham likes to relish the death of people who fall into the conservative category. Notice the silence on the part of Kathy Sullivan, Ray Buckley and the other assorted rank and file Dems in NH? [insert crickets chirping, here]

Hey…Timmy! I saw you at the Second Amendment rally yesterday…All I can say is, take a shower, get a haircut and find a decent dry cleaner. That whole corner of the attic look ain’t cutting it. Keep on drinking that Kool-Aid Haterade!

And while you’re at it seek some mental health counseling.

    Not tru, Rick. I think lil’ timmy’s whole Grandma Hubbard look is endearing. Why, I would feel perfectly comfortable if he were to babysit my new hamsters.

        He is a riot!!

    • I like to simply say, “Timmuh!!” Like on South Park

  • So, a State Representative makes a stupid comment, actually resigns over it, manages to get re-elected, then does it AGAIN? He’s more of a pathetic (pathological?) jester than I realized. We should call him “Tiny Minded Tim”.

      Perhaps we should have a naming party. Here’s my suggestions:
      1. tiny timmy
      2. Granny T
      3. lil’ timmy
      – C. dog, Special Agent, Dept. of Appellation and Nomenclature

    • Gee, Timmy is late…Usually when there is something he might take exception to, he comes on, posts and changes the subject or rabbit-trails off on some inane assertion…. I figured calling him dysfunctional he’s come on and say…ah, lets see…just guessing here….Republicans should be shot with poison bullets!” oh, thats not funny? oh well…


    Thanks for posting this. For had you not posted it, I would have no clue who Timothy Horrigan is – apart from a very liberal guy who posts on here occasionally.
