Here are a couple of observations about Leon and Andrew, based on a more careful reading of Leon’s piece, and a look back at some of Andrew's greatest hits. 1 I don’t mean this as a cop-out, but Chait says much of what I would say, but better. 2 Like Chait, I don’t believe that [...]
Meltdown with Keith Olbermann, Part 32 ♦
Constant Countdown guest and obsequious suckup, Richard Wolffe, along with host Keith Olbermann last night proudly declared themselves to be less sophisticated than — Sarah Palin.
Either that or they showed they think Keith’s remaining audience is r— er, “challenged” and will fall for the crudest of propaganda techniques.
Today marks a new turn in the obsessive attacks on Sarah Palin: associating her with John Edwards.
In the New York Times Timothy Egan sees them as a pair of ethically similar “grifters” using populism to con the American voter–“playing to outrage while taking care of themselves.” In Egan’s view, both [...]
Andrew Sullivan, who once wrote the essential politically incorrect essay, “What’s so bad about hate?” to refute the idea of codifying “hate crimes,” is ironically now the poster child for what can be so bad about love—blind love, that is.

Remember, it was The Atlantic who hired crazed photographer Jill Greenberg to take photos of John McCain. Greenberg manipulated the photo [...]
Yesterday, Andrew Sullivan served once more as low level public relations officer for the administration when he pretends to buy the White House spin that Obama has heroically spoken out about the underwear bomber in a way that shows how much he means business and marks him once again as the “un Bush.”
After seeing Janet [...]
Prominent blogger Andrew Sullivan (the genius who pushed rumors that Sarah Palin was lying about giving birth to her fifth son, Trig) was on “Real Time with Bill Maher” where the two were discussing terrorism. Maher, in remarks Sullivan described Wednesday as “one of the smartest things Bill Maher has ever said on the subject,” [...]
Levi Johnston, Governor Sarah Palin’s former son-in-law, continues to beg for attention.
Johnston fought to allow the custody matter to unfold in public, saying in a sworn statement that doing so would help put everyone on best behavior. He noted that Van Flein also represents Sarah Palin.
“I know that public scrutiny will simplify this matter and [...]
