Once again, Mr. Sullivan's posse has taken predictable refuge behind their version of the old Communist doctrine -- that Conservatism cannot fail, Conservatism can only be failed.
Because if Reagan's Clown Car has bad stuff in the trunk or bad people at the wheel, well that simply means its not really Conservatism.
C'mon, dude: that's just science.
Also too, along with such luminaries as Mark Kelly, Elizabeth Warren and Steve Jobs, Mr. Sullivan was also just lengthily profiled in "Esquire" as one of "20 Americans of the Year" in an article that begins thus:
"A Catholic British intellectual becomes a revolutionary American."
And contains paragraphs like this:
But by now, The Dish has become a unique Internet touchstone, a site that might be the one place driven by moral force independent of moralism or tiresome political cant. Whereas the political Internet exists entirely to polarize, Sullivan resists polarization.
Congratulations, Mr. Sullivan.
