From Andrew Sullivan, the gay, Catholic, immigrant True Conservative public intellectual who was something like 30 years late to the "Hey, has anyone noticed that American Conservatism is fucked in the head?" party, and so far as I can ascertain has never acknowledged The Liberals were ever right about anything despite spending the last few years learning to mimic the Liberal canon and pass it off as cutting-edge Conservative epiphany:
Breaking: Ted Olson Created The Conservative Case For Gay MarriageJUN 19 2014 @ 12:36PMThat’s what the super-rich super-lawyer – who, unlike all the countless previous lawyers in the marriage equality movement, did not work pro bono – tells the world in his new book. Nathaniel Frank reviews it:Olson and Boies seem to think they were the first to cast same-sex marriage as a conservative issue and to conduct bipartisan outreach, an idea that rightly made Andrew Sullivan apoplectic, given his pioneering 1989 New Republic cover story, “Here Comes the Groom: A (Conservative) Case for Gay Marriage.”......The arguments we honed in the 1990s were designed to be used by others, to spread as memes. And there is nothing more rewarding in a civil rights movement than hearing others make arguments and even rhetoric that you helped pioneer. We were delighted to have Olson on our side. But when a straight man barges into the movement at the very last minute and actually claims he came up with these arguments all by himself and that there had been no conservative outreach before him, you can see why it smarts a little......
I'll bet is does smart, Andrew
I'll bet it stings like a bitch.
