Sully doesn’t stop, he just keeps on digging
I wrote about Andrew Sullivan’s descent into madness here. But Sullivan shows no signs of stopping even as his colleagues at The Atlantic recoil in horror. In fact, he keeps digging a deeper hole, now claiming that what happened to John Edwards was a different issue entirely because he wasn’t running for president any more, but Sullivan’s own baseless and profoundly insulting attacks on Sarah | Read More »
Andrew Sullivan’s Descent into Madness
Yesterday Moe and I with his colleagues in respected corners of the news media who had disparaged Sarah Palin, relying on the rantings from the foulest corners of the blogosphere as the basis for their articles. Douthat’s disappointment – along with that of his colleagues McArdle and Goldberg – turned slowly into outrage over the course of the day, as it became clear that much | Read More »
Remember When Andrew Sullivan Used to be a Credible Blogger?
I’m sure that newcomers to the blogosphere often wonder why anyone ever reads Andrew Sullivan. Since Obama came along, after all, Sullivan has been nothing but nothing more than just another no-talent Obama sycophant who is inordinately obsessed with convincing himself that the Catholic Church does not really mean what it teaches on homosexuality. In other words, no one that anyone would want to read. | Read More »
Beckwith: Palin Tops Andrew Sullivan
Francis Beckwith’s emailed his latest Southern Appeal post to me. It’s worth reproducing in full here: Andrew Sullivan does it again: he tries to demean Gov. Palin and fails, againby Francis Beckwith Andrew Sullivan writes: From an Eagle Forum Candidate Questionnaire: Q: Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance?

Andrew Sullivan Flunks a Rorschach Test
Andrew Sullivan, fresh off of bending the truth to mean whatever he’d like it to mean about his pre-Iraq position on the war, writes today to accuse John and Cindy McCain of embellishing a very personal story in a crass attempt to achieve political gain with evangelicals. Part of the McCain Celebrity, as packaged for the evangelical base, is the rescue of two Bangladeshi girls | Read More »
To Paraphrase John Edwards . . .
There are, at the very least, two Andrew Sullivans. It is one thing to have changed your mind on the conflict in Iraq. It is quite another to do a complete 180 on the broader philosophical issues of the day without having even remotely laid the intellectual groundwork for having done so. The former is a respectable and understandable shift in position. The latter only | Read More »
Blast from the past
Edwards Suspends Campaign He does it because his wife has a recurrence of cancer in some degree to be further explored. It is of a piece with his character to do this; and a simple testament that he has the right priorities and values to be a president of the United States. Sorry, Ms Coulter. But this man will be remembered for a character you | Read More »
Ron Suskind, Philip Giraldi and Andrew Sullivan have a problem
Ron Suskind’s new book has spawned some discussion of a letter he claims was forged by the CIA on the direction of the Bush administration to gin up what he considers to be their fraudulant case for invading Iraq. It’s a little hard to follow, but as far as I can tell Suskind’s story is that the letter linking Saddam Hussein to al Qaeda was | Read More »
