Hypocrisy incorporated

I knew it before I looked. Of course Sullivan would support Kerry's bullshit mention of Mary Cheney last night. What I didn't expect was the kama sura like contortions that he would put himself through to do it. Excerpt(and no, I'm not linking directly to any of his bullshit):

Mickey posits a perilous race analogy:

What if Kerry were debating a conservative on affirmative action, and that conservative had a black wife, and Kerry gratuitously brought that up in an attempt to cost his opponent the racist vote? Would Andrew Sullivan approve? I don't think so. ...


First off, I don't buy the cynical explanation of Kerry's reference.

And there you have it: complete, unadulterated horse poopy. When you "don't buy" the cynical explanation about a Panderer-in-Chief's position as the most likely explanation, you have proved yourself to be

a) a freaking idiot or

b) a mindless apologist the person opposing the candidate that you hate

Since Sully obivously isn't stupid, I'm leaning towards choice "b". Yeah, I know. I'm going out on a limb here.

Update: Ace adds his take on this subject while linking to some others. Not surprisingly, I'm not the only one that noticed Sullivan's, umm, nuance on this particular subject.

I continue to hope that sanity is restored to the man once the election is over, even if Bush wins.

Especially if someone finally manages to drill it into his head that the fucking FMA is never going to be ratified no matter what happens.

That is my hope, too. Right now, reading Sullivan is bad for my health because it makes my blood pressure go up. A lot.
