"Bill Kristol has suffered not a whit from this grotesque misjudgment (and never apologized), while thousands of young Americans lie dead because of it."While that is undoubtedly true, I don't know what sort of "suffering" Mr. Sullivan believes people of Mr. Kristol's social caste ever suffer for being wrong about anything.
-- Andrew Sullivan, 03/20/13
It is, after all, equally true that Mr. Sullivan hasn't missed any meals as he managed his rapid transition from a friend of Don Rumsfeld, strident Iraq War supporter and Conservative media darling...
...to invitee to Obama White House dinners, strident scourge of Sarah Palin's uterus and a "True Conservative" media darling.
He is courted by Barack Obama and is friends with Donald Rumsfeld and The Dish has been wooed as a digital media partner by many of America's greatest news brands.Suffering?
Suffering is for other people.
As I tweeted Mr. Sullivan earlier,"'Misunderstanding' is when the waiter brings you corned beef hash instead of hash browns." Of course Mr. Sullivan has very long and virtually unbroken streak of never responding to any of my posts, emails or tweets, but once I get my own gig at The New Republic or Salon or MSNBC or Slate or Atlantic or Mother Jones or the NYT or the New Yorker or The Guardian or WaPo or CurrentTV or Reason or the Daily Beast I'm sure that will change.
