Adventures in Sycophancy

The boys and girls over at Too Conservative are fantasizing again about a Chairman Sean victory in the primary for Lieutenant Governor. Never has so much been said about someone who spent so much but accomplished so little of the Conservative agenda. Get over it, guys and girls.

Their inability to come to grips with reality and predilection for sycophantism begs the question, from what fine institution of higher learning did they graduate?

It seems obvious from their stance as "Lord Connaughton" appologists as well as their inablity to engage in a rational discussion of reality, that they are not alumni of UVA, HSC or W&L (my appologies to BC but they just don't make the grade). Perhaps they too are graduates (and I use that term lightly) of that fine institution from which "Lord Connaughton" earned (was mailed) his JD, yes that fine commuter college GMU, which consistently produces some of the most uninformed, unrealistic yet opinionated and arrogant individuals I know. Might also explain why they have so much time to blog as those "graudates" always work for not over us.

And don't forget, Marty Nohe graduated from that JOKE of a "college" GMU, as well as the singularly horrible Prince William County Public Schools. Maybe that explains why he's such a miserable example of a so-called elected offical.

MOM, GMU was a pretty good law school, according to many. I frequently judge moot court competitions there, and have been pretty impressed with the abilities of some of the participants. I wouldn't associate myself with your comment in that regard, nor hold it against Chairman Sean, either.

And MHE, your handle indicates that you must be young.

Interesting:

As someone who attended PWC schools and did, indeed, attend the University of Virginia, I think you're being unfairly harsh where GMU is concerned. It's a fine school and I wouldn't object if one of my children chose to attend it. While I didn't, the fact is, I never gave schools like HSC or W&L a second glance either. But, to each his own standards. I'm sure those schools have merits as well.

Interesting comments, Mitch. It's all good fun to trash-talk rivals at home (i.e., in Virginia) but I have found outside of the Commonwealth that there is a cameraderie among Virginia schools unlike any elsewhere. 'Fact is, most H-SC students (at least, in my day, when it was all mail) also applied to W&L (it was the first school to admit me). Don't know enough about GMU undergrad to arbitrate this dispute.

And I give you credit for managing to mention UVA without mentioning Mr. Jefferson. Don't know too many UVA students who could. ;-)

As I may have alluded to earlier, I'm a decendent of John Marshall. I went to UVa in spite of TJ, not because of him ;)

You did, and that explains it.
