Looks like we have a brewing Warner of the Week for Connaughton. He got his troops in line finally.

Who is that idiot Robert Muller who is mulling a run as an Independent with $$$$ already backed behind him from property rights groups from as far away as Idaho?

Not Jack Herrity

If my hunch is correct, this is more about Maureen's childlike behavior than Jim Riley's childlike behavior.

This one is a definite Leans Stewart.

NJH

A few questions I'd like to pose:

How do you know this info?

Is Marty definitely no longer considering this?

Where did anon get info on Molleur? Any confirmation?

What childlike behavior of Maureen's? (not saying there is none, just not sure what NJH is referring to)

Inquiring minds want to know.....

James Young

Actually, Anon 2:53, as you intimate, the question should not be "What childlike behavior..." so much as "Which childlike behavior...."

Ano

COREY'S GONNA WIN!!!!! Thank the good Lord, PWC will finally be in good hands!

Doug in Mount Vernon

YAWN..

I "intimate[d]" no such thing.

I was simply trying to say that I was not disputing NJH's premise because I have no knowledge one way or the other with which to dispute it. So, I want more details.

ditto YAWN!!!

PWC in good hands with Corey as Chairman - you do realize that the Chairman is just one vote. Corey will have one vote just like he has now. He is ineffective in Occoquan with just one vote. He will be equally ineffective county-wide with just one vote too unless he is capable of building coalitions and bridges. I just don't see it happening. He seems much more adept at alienating people.

Jousting at windmills might be great for one's self-righteous ego, but it does little for the citizens of PWC.

"Jousting at windmills might be great for one's self-righteous ego, but it does little for the citizens of PWC."

Well said! That's one of the best and most accurate comments I've ever read.

The correct phrase is "tilting at windmills", leave it to a Connaughtonite to screw up an adage and immediately get affirmation from the amen corner.

For practical purposes, however, perhaps it should be rephrased as "jousting at windbags" as with Connaughton's departure the chief windbag would be gone and the adage no longer applicable.

Tilting IS jousting.

Both phrases are quite common. Neither comes directly from the text of Cervantes' Don Quixote.

Leave it to a Stewartoid to be capable of only seeing language in black and white. A perfect metaphor.

James Young

"Corey will have one vote just like he has now. He is ineffective in Occoquan with just one vote. He will be equally ineffective county-wide with just one vote too unless he is capable of building coalitions and bridges. I just don't see it happening.

So long as he alienates the right ones --- you know, like cowards who hide in anonymity or pseudonymity --- I'm OK with that.

The proper grammar in using "joust" would be jousting with not jousting at, nevertheless, tilting at or fighting with windmills are the generally accepted forms of the phrase.

Leave it to a Connaughtonite to twist the English language and paint everything gray.

By the way, a metaphor requires an object to be compared to, something obviously missing from your earlier post. Perhaps a refresher course in English is in order before you complete your community college studies.

"Leave it to a Stewartoid to be capable of only seeing language in black and white. A perfect metaphor."

Let's see what could possibly be metaphorical -

Stewart supporters and seeing things and black and white.

I am sorry that you are unable to think and reason and have to have everything spoonfed to you anon, 5:11.

NOVA Scout

I looked without success for the story about "moderate Connaughtonites." Are there such things? Is a conservative Connaughton one of them? Has Connaughton endorsed Caddigan? Where's the story?

"I am sorry that you are unable to think and reason and have to have everything spoonfed to you"

Typical of you Connaughtonites, throw a statement out followed by a nebulous assertion and when questioned as to form or substance assume an air of superiority and let loose with the insult.

Leave it to a Connaughtonite to be capable of only seeing accepting their own interpretation ergo a reduction in the tax rate equals a reduction in the real property tax and anyone who argues otherwise (regardless the other components of the equation) isan idiot.

Sorry, that's a wishy washy liberal (or dare I say a moderate) tactic.

"I looked without success for the story about "moderate Connaughtonites." Are there such things?"

Your arrival should serve as sufficient proof of their existence.

AWCheney

I suppose that Connaughton, NoVA, and even me, could be viewed as "moderates" from the far, extreme right of the spectrum...but then the spectrum has slipped a little to the right anyway over the past decade or so.

How does one joust WITH an inanimate object?

Jousting "with" implies a participatory action. A windmill is not capable of participating in the action.

Think of it like this: It's like talking to a brick wall. One is really not talking WITH the brick wall. One must talk AT it.

Kind of like now.
