The P-Town Pothead: Andrew Sullivan’s Federal Misdemeanor
Oh Sully Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling, from glen to glen, and down the mountain side, The summer’s gone, and all the flowers are dying, ‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide. Okay, that may be Irish, but its still time to make a transatlantic trip to Mother England, Sully Boy. I’ll pour a Cape Codder on the curb when | Read More »
Andrew Sullivan and the days bloggers have.
I normally try to adopt a back-away-slowly reaction to Andrew Sullivan – I’m not a trained psychological professional, but frankly that man’s a crazy as a outhouse rat these days – but R.S. McCain, in the process of idly smacking around Sullivan for the latest exercise in conspiracy thinking (honestly, if the Weekly World News won’t go with it*, why is the Atlantic doing so?), | Read More »
But I’m a Liberal and I Voted for Obama….I Can’t be a Sexist or a Racist!!
I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this recent phenomenon or not, but for the past year or so, liberals have progressively become more and more flagrant with regard to making sexist, racist, or bigoted comments about anyone who ran against or voted against Barack Obama. At first, liberal sexism and bigotry started out as a distant rumble–now it has become a thunderous roar. | Read More »

Thank You Sir may I have another! Probably the best slap down of a Liberal Schmuck I’ve ever read. And the victim is Andrew Sullivan…need I say more?
This smack down of Andrew “Trig” Sullivan is probably the best I have ever read. From Sullivans treatment of Palin and his Trig obsession to religion and politics every moronic stance ole’ Andy has taken is shot down and ground into the earth! A Must read at http://newledger.com/2009/06/through-the-looking-glass-with-andrew-sullivan/ I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Through The Looking Glass With Andrew Sullivan
My always-worth-reading New Ledger colleague, Christopher Badeaux, has the definitive and exhaustive profile of Andrew Sullivan’s work and the obsessions that have defined him as a writer and wasted so much of Sullivan’s prodigious writing talents. You’ll want to print this one out and digest it at leisure. Here’s the opening:
Witness the Jewish Conspiracy’s control over SPACE AND TIME itself!
Pejman Yousefzadeh is cruel, as befits someone as high up in the International Neo-Zionist Conspiracy as he. When confronted with Andrew Sullivan going into an ecstatic frenzy over what was more or less a pedestrian and prosaic statement by the President, it was not enough for him to merely mock the conspiracy theorist. No, Pejman had to go back in time, using strange and forbidden | Read More »
Of Stimulus Lessons And Judd Gregg’s Withdrawal
My thoughts over at the Arena. Concerning the Gregg issue, Andrew Sullivan–in his inimitable way–is claiming that the Gregg withdrawal is proof that the Republicans have “declared war” on Obama. Never mind the fact that other Cabinet nominees–at least, the ones that don’t have to withdraw from consideration because of obstacles like tax cheating–have been receiving overwhelming support from both parties in Senate confirmation votes. | Read More »
Greenwald, Sullivan’s faux-outrage over rendition.
The quote is from Spider Robinson’s short story “Unnatural Causes” (found in his first Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon story collection, known as, well, Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon), and we’ll be revisiting it in a moment. But first: pro-torture pro-Obama bloggers Glenn Greenwald and Andrew Sullivan have decided that they are very unhappy about Obama’s decision to maintain the Bush administration’s policy of “asserting a broad “state secrets” | Read More »
The truth regarding Sarah Palin’s new grandson [PARODY]
Eighteen-year-old Bristol Palin, daughter of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has given birth to a 7 pound 7 ounce baby boy, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, the first child of Bristol and fiancé Levi Johnston. I can only guess with a fair degree of scientific certainty what is going through noted and confused blogger A. Sullivan’s mind: A-HA! Seven pounds! Seven ounces! Yea, though the number seven | Read More »
Where, in the excerpts discussed here, did the Vice President of the United States say that the President has the right “to dissolve the Constitution”? Cheney gave a general answer to a vague question and pointed out the obvious fact that the President does not have to consult Congress before launching nuclear weapons–mostly because in a launch situation, there would be no time for such | Read More »
The Warren Invocation Controversy
My thoughts. As if to underline my point about Obama supporters seeking desperately to rationalize the President-elect’s decision to invite Warren–whose beliefs are antithetical to many of theirs–ton give the invocation, comes now Andrew Sullivan to offer excuses for Obama and to try to convince his readers–and perhaps himself–that indeed, this really does not matter in the grand scheme of things. Anything to avoid criticizing | Read More »
The only question is why are you surprised? It’s not as if there was a lack of voices during the Presidential campaign saying stuff like “hey, we really don’t know who this Obama fellow is. He’s kind of an empty vessel and we seem to be projecting onto him what we like best. Anyone else concerned about that?” But unfortunately, whenever some of us brought | Read More »
So, To Sum Up . . .
According to Andrew Sullivan, Barack Obama’s Big Government tendencies and programs can be blamed on . . . George W. Bush’s penchant for Big Government. Yup. That’s what he’s saying. Of course, it is fatuous nonsense; the Big Government tendencies of the Bush Administration do not necessitate those of the incoming Obama Administration. And Barack Obama was for Big Government long before George W. Bush | Read More »
Way To Go, Andrew
Andrew Sullivan is livid. He is livid because there is a possibility–perhaps even a strong one–that John Brennan could become the new Director of Central Intelligence. Sullivan objects to this because he thinks that Brennan bought into “politicized” intelligence in the run-up to the war in Iraq and that Brennan may have been involved in war crimes. And of course, in situations like this one, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton At Foggy Bottom?
That’s the speculation, of course. I don’t know whether a Clinton appointment as Secretary of State will come to pass but if it does, Clinton will be the latest in a long line of . . . er . . . Clintonites to join the Clinton Obama Administration. Perhaps I should not be so snarky. After all, the Clintonites are the last Democrats to people | Read More »
