Connaughton Confirmation Hearing Photos

By Too Conservative

By way of our friend, NoVA Scout:

Great stuff, NoVA!


  • Robert T. Molleur says:

    I’m surprised you didn’t get a photo of him using the hearing room men’s room since you just can’t get enough of him.

    What’s next? A photo of him putting on his shoes before his first day on the job and describing in detail the weave of his new executive socks?

    Get a grip elitist conservative fakes, it’s not like the Pope lost his St. Peter ring down a Vatican drain pipe.

    What will you all do once he’s gone – will you cry so much that all of a sudden there’s actual water flow in my dry drainage ditch?

    Heck, if that happens you can name the “stream” Connfluence.

  • James Young says:

    It’s doubtful that Chairman Sean needs to use the men’s room, Bob. A la Mel Brooks’ “History of the World, Part One,” NoVA Scout is clearly happy to serve as his pissboy.

  • NoVA Scout says:

    Where’s that moderation feature when we really need it?

    You both are such classy fellows. Jim has gone from calling Jaded JD a “fag” to calling me a “pissboy.”

    We’ll leave these comments up as part of our program to use you guys as examples of what young Virginians don’t want to grow up to be. Parents who catch their children using potty mouths or toilet humor can always wash their mouths out with soap and say: “I hate to do this, but you don’t want to grow up to be like Young and Molleur.”

  • anonymous says:

    Ah, the green-eyed monster rears its ugly head yet again.

  • James Young says:

    Yeah, you could grow up to be like NoVA Scout, a cowardly lion who has sold his soul to a politician — perhaps even for personal gain — and lacks the courage to put his name to his slanders.

    You’re so impressive, NoVA Scout/Sean.

    As for my comment about you, that was a movie reference.

    As for my comment about JD, isn’t he a self-identified fag?

  • James Young says:

    And it’s certainly curious as to what you want “young Virginians … want to grow up to be,” NoVA Scout. Apparently, it’s acceptable to grow up to engage in unnatural and/or perverse sexual behavior, but it’s NOT acceptable to identify it for what it is.


  • NoVA Scout says:

    James: are you the only one in the world who hasn’t heard the dictum about when you’re in a hole, stop digging?

    I want young Virginians to be civil, respectful, well-educated, and able to engage in political discussion in a constructive manner.

    I have no idea why you’re talking about sex practices. Clean it up, man. Get your mind out of the gutter. Take a cold shower or something and get pastoral counselling.

  • James Young says:

    Well, I guess we can agree that there are some things that are beyond the pale, “NoVA Scout.” Where we differ is what they are. You apparently have a problem with identifying perversion; I do not. When someone behaves or speaks like a racist, it is ALWAYS inappropriate, for example. Were someone to advocate Nazi superiority, that ia ALWAYS inappropriate, no matter the patina with which they coat it.

    Now, to be sure, you couch your insults in intellectualoid euphemism, and thereafter pat yourself on the back for how clever you are; I prefer plain speaking. Which is more “respectful,” I wonder? Clearly, your choice of euphemism and, for example, dismissal of all who disagree with your profound wisdom — so profound that you hide behind a pseudonym, not wanting your name associated with it — as “radical” is not “civil” in any meaningful sense of the word.

    We also disagree about being in a “hole.” If you want to continue making excuses for perversion (sexually; of the language, etc.), you go right ahead. I hardly consider it a “hole” to do so.

    And thank you for offering, yet again, your patented, dime-store psychology. It always seems to be your last refuge.

  • NoVA Scout says:

    James: I have a problem with crude name-calling. I’ll be right out front in vocal denunciation if we run into racists or Nazis around here. So far, I haven’t seen any of that. But I think you’re trying to change the subject. “Fag” and “piss-boy” don’t come up (not even close) to even the very relaxed standards that Mitch, LI and I are currently operating under.

    Moreover, I don’t think I’ve said anything about sexual practices of anyone. For me that’s a religious discussion, and generally not my business. This is a political/community blog. Try to go somewhere else with that stuff.

  • […] NoVA Scout does at great job of covering the Sean Connaughton and Charles Nottingham Confirmation Hearings here and here. […]

  • James Young says:

    Thank you for making my point, “NoVA Scout.” You “have a problem with crude name-calling,” so you couch your name-calling in intellectualoid euphemism, and thereafter pat yourself on the back for how clever you are.

  • NoVA Scout says:

    I’m not very clever, James. If I seem that way to you, it’s only in a relative sense.
