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."
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.-- Andrew Sullivan, October 15, 2013
