Pawlenty To Corn-A-Holers: It's Going to End

The best news in quite some time.

America is facing a crushing debt crisis the likes of which we've never seen before. We need to cut spending, and we need to cut it big time. The hard truth is that there are no longer any sacred programs.

The truth about federal energy subsidies, including federal subsidies for ethanol, is that they have to be phased out. We need to do it gradually. We need to do it fairly. But we need to do it.

That cancels my previous post, we think. There are a few conditionals in P's statement.

One more, this from Morrissey/Hot Air:

Politicians are often afraid that if they’re too honest, they might lose an election. I’m afraid that in 2012, if we’re not honest enough, we may lose our country.--Pawlenty

I'll believe it when it happens. Pawlenty is an ethanol guy and when the pressure is on, he'll cave on it.

The cornholing may end here, but my cornholing of Christopher Liebenthal will never end?

Just slap his thigh and ride those waves into that buttery asshole!

And the insanity continues with deranged anony and his sodomy fetish, with Dad29 as the vehicle!

John Foust said...

Which other Cheddarsphere conservative blogs would retain comments like these? What is it about Dad29's blog has attracted this sort of insult?

Anonymous said...

The fact that he hasn't banned John Foust speaks volumes.

John Foust said...

Speak up, brave Anony - what are you trying to accomplish with your sodomy stories and threats to reveal private info? Ask yourself why your conservative buddies and the ordained visitors to this blog are not defending what you're doing?

Dad29 said...

Gee, John, I dunno.

No other conserva-blog allows you to comment any more.

John Foust said...

Yeah, all the ones that haven't banned me must be RINOs, huh?

I've never engaged in the sort of foul language used by your Anony. Why would it be difficult for you to ask them to stop?

Again - if it were your children or the insults were lobbed at you, what would be your response?

Apparently Dad29 condones sin. I wonder what his priest would say...

Actually, Foust, where is the sustained outrage by those who regularly read and post here who claim to be the followers of Christ?

It is one thing for partisan bloggers (liberal or conservative) to speak harshly against their opponents, but it is another thing for comments such as the promotion of sodomy that distinctly crosses the line of human decency.

I think it must be much easier to rant and rave about imagined slights that are far away, than to admit to the incivility happening on the same page.
