Stupid Shit Andrew Sullivan Says, Ctd.

"My one complaint is the use of the term “bigots” to describe anyone opposed to marriage equality. Some are; many aren’t. And the use of the word does nothing to help engage opponents of equality – and merely reeks of the Maddow-like smugness that encourages the foes of equality to dig in."

-- Andrew Sullivan. June 3, 2013
The drive-by shot at Maddow positively reeks of cheap Sullivan-like bitchiness.

Also "Anonymous" gives me my new favorite addenda to my unofficial blogger motto.

Rule 1:  There is a Club.
Rule 2:  You are not in it.
There is a shit-list.
You are up near the top.
Thanks, Anon!

Andrew is becoming a preening middle-aged peacock. Process about complete I'd say.

Sometimes I wonder if the psychological strain of Sullivan denying the hate his movement has for him is causing permanent psychological damage to appear before us.

Sometimes I think he's just a pompous asshole.

It's true. We often look at one another resignedly, as if to say, "Dammit, won't some other movement have him?"

As the title of this series eventually means, he just isn't very bright. For example, thinking that being a British conservative would just transplant over here tout court.

My favorite bit was when Ta-Nehisi Coates, at first a Sullivan-embracer, got a load of the latter's thoughts about IQ and race. In this piece we also see that Andrew's other movement (American conservatism) is not too sure about him either.

He's definitely a pompous asshole. That's all you ever really need to know about him.
