It’s now two weeks since I requested additional information about the aliases John Huppenthal used and the sites at which he commented. A week ago, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Now, it seems, he may be ignoring my questions.

I’ll go out on a limb here. I think Huppenthal’s aliases went beyond Falcon9 and Thucydides. On our blog, we had one comment from a Socrates that tracked to the same location as Thucydides and Falcon9, and was made after the last Falcon9 comment and before the first Thucydides comment.


Seeing Red AZ actually referred to a Socrates1289 in a post about Huppenthal’s trolling.

Sonoran Alliance, a popular conservative blog, had a post in 2009 entitled Gould Stripped of Committee Chairmanship. Here’s “Socrates” comment to that post:

There we never any real tax cuts in the budget. To suggest otherwise, is not being honest. And voting consistent with one’s expressed ideology and the will of one’s community is honorable.

Ron Gould and Pamela Gorman are true principled, honest, selfless profiles in courage. Unfortunately, we don’t see that in politics too often these days. Rather than go along with the powers that be, the special interest lobbyists and the insiders, they stand up for what they believe. They stand up for the positions upon which they were elected. And they won’t back down in the face of extreme pressure. You can lie to the voters as Burns and Brewer have done. Or you can choose honor instead. Gould and Gorman – heroes, both. Burns is an incompetent disaster.

So, does John Huppenthal believe Jan Brewer is a liar? When he was posting as Thucky here, he bristled at what he believed was my wrongful invocation of the word “liar.” So, whatever Brewer did was quite egregious in his mind. Ditto for Bob Burns, who he labeled an “incompetent disaster.”

Wonder how Brewer and Burns will feel about this? Sure hope someone asks them.
