From Mr. Sullivan:
It doesn't matter how much or how often she or her fellow Conservative travelers lie, Andrew.
For reasons that no one in your business will reveal to us peons and pea-pickers, these liars and frauds all have jobs-for-life at the apex of American political media.
They shape our national narrative, declare "true" and "Serious" whatever momentarily pleases them and "false" and "shrill" and "irrelevant" whatever embarrasses or inconveniences them and there currently exists no effective means for stopping them or calling them out.
Along with the existence of tens of millions of fanatical bigots and dolts who hate us Liberals and our black Socialist Kenyan President so hard they'd vote to burn the country to the ground if they thought it would make us cry, this debased media fraud-mill that panders to them is no accident.
This is the American Conservative Movement triumphant.
But what really makes me positively whoop whoop whoop with laughter?
From Mr. Sullivan (emphasis added):
From a hut-dwelling eremite or elderly shut-in or burger flipper working at Sisterfuck, Arkansas' second-best Denny's, such infantile naivete might be excusable. Even charming.
But for Tina Brown's pet public Conservative intellectual to refuse to notice the real nature of that Movement until 10 minutes ago? For Chris Matthews' favorite "Genus! No! Really! Andrew, you're just a genius about this stuff!" to miss it? For someone who has been loudly and publicly active up to his chin-whiskers in the Conservative Movement since the days Ronald Reagan strode the Earth to completely fail to understand the woof and warp of the American Conservative movement? To miss it and then try to plea bargain this stunningly disqualifying blindness down to a simple charge of shock and naivete?
For his sins, a judge has sentenced Mr. Sullivan to perform 30 minutes of community service: this Sunday he will be forced to join such intellectual Titans as George Will and Newt Fucking Gingrich on "This Week" to impart his mighty shocked, naive wisdom to an America he clearly does not (to quote Newt) Fundamentally, Basically understand.
And so it goes.
