Into the Divine Wind


I suggested the PeP embark on a 21st century Reconquista of sorts. Knowing Powerline (for some reason, unbeknownst even to me) stood in our way, I thought a challenge was in order. So I emailed them a challenge. You'll find it below. Children, don't start drinking at 1:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday.

Subject: Iron Duel
Gentlemen,
Prepare yourselves for an introduction. We are the Pie-Eyed Picayune, a blog of about six months, composed of the five finest future products of Minnesota higher education that one could hope for. Jesse, and Tim P. would be damn proud to know us. Unfortunately, they don't. In fact, no one really does. But we know you, and we're all fans of your blog (if not your issue positions).
Each of us is currently pursuing a higher degree (two are candidates for a master's in public policy, one a law student, one a PhD candidate in political science, and one a graduate student in business admnistration) and through this blog we've set up straw arguments and hacked them down like samurai swords whipping through a flock of seagulls.
With this in mind we offer you a duel. A historic meeting in the steel cage of bloggerdom. Sgt. Slaughter versus the Iron Sheik. A Casket Match, if you will. Agree first, and we'll settle on an issue. Perhaps a one-round, winner takes all, debate on the cronyism of Harriet Miers (gasp! after the resignation of the phony Michael Brown.) Come on, Powerline. Shall we?

consider the gauntlet thrown,
john

I enjoy reading the stories on your site. Keep up the super articles!

Do you think 'anonymous' is really Hinderaker?

Ilya said...

That anonymous is a bot. "Super articles"? What articles?

Mandingo said...

Honestly, Pie. didn't you see, "blog hosting" at the bottom? shame on you.

xtrachromosomeconservative said...

I already administrate you bitch.

BTW peeps, I am coming out to your frigid ass state on Thursday. How does the old joke go: God had diarhea and then there was .... (I'll let y'all fill in the blank).

PiedPiper said...

Apparently, you fellas have lost your sense of humor. Obviously, I didn't actually think 'anonymous' was Hinderaker. Quit taking yourselves so seriously.

And yes, Xtra, I am well aware you are coming out to our "frigid ass state, and am convening a Pie-Eyed Conference of Revelry and Madness in St. Paul on Friday night.

xtrachromosomeconservative said...

Damn Right, a frigid night of revelry. Will there be a circle jerk?

PiedPiper said...

Indubitably. But only if Hinderaker's around.

I have to say you might have 200 posts now but honestly you mostly talk amongst yourselves (xtra, mandingo, piper, and ilya). Also, you may want to look back at your old posts and will realize how much credibility you have lost with your foul comments and language since you first began your blog. Sorry, but the derogatory jokes about women, references to circle jerks, etc. are so prevalent that's its getting lame.

I bet you that was hinderaker. But even so, anonymous does have a point. Our blog is sort of like a circle jerk. I think our meeting should have some programming.

I think anonymous' post wasn't entirely fair, Archduke f.f. does comment a fair amount. Though, I think he should be a contributor, thus to complete the circle if you will. And my Brother comments periodically too, anonymously, douche. Maybe anonymous was my brother. Though, I doubt it, he doesn't usually object to derogatory remarks made about women or references to circle jerks. Anonymous must have either been a mature person (i.e. Hinderaker) or a pussy liberal (e.g. one of you guys, mandingo notwithstanding).
