Silly Shit Andrew Sullivan Says, Ctd.


Once again, this was not the silly bit.  This was ancient Liberal canon purloined by Mr. Sullivan without the slightest acknowledgement that Liberals actually exist:  

This brinksmanship with millions of jobs and lives at stake the world over is staggering. The narcissism is staggering. The sheer, rank irresponsibility is staggering... It is nihilist vandalism.. 
-- Andrew Sullivan, October 15, 2013
No this was the silly bit:
"This is not conservatism by any meaning of the word."  
-- Andrew Sullivan, October 15, 2013
By any meaning of the word...except its everyday, functional American definition as commonly understood by tens of millions of people who are not Andrew Sullivan.

func·tion·al -- adjective
1. Of or relating to a function.
2. Designed for or adapted to a particular function or use.
Modern American Conservatism is functioning exactly as it was designed to function.

Perhaps if you are too thick  to see that you should get out of the Public Intellectual racket.

Mr. Sullivan, you have about as much chance of convincing American conservatives that they're using the wrong definition of "conservatism" as Mr. Glass has of convincing today's young whippersnappers that "Star Wars" isn't science fiction. The war was lost ages ago. Let it go, man. :)

Enjoy your day.

it's really the only way he can maintain a vestige of self-respect. The only excuse he has for enabling these vandals and rapists is that they are No True Conservatives.

Mind you, I do not consider that scrap of self-respect to be deserved.

OMG! The cannery in the coal mine has realised that the miners have hit gas!

Can someone please explain to this cannery that he applied for a position in a fracking well already?
