Patterico's Pontifications

Sullivan Falls on His Ass, Claims: “I MEANT to Do That!!”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:41 pm

Yesterday the blogger formerly known as RAWMUSLGLUTES (link not safe for work) published the following embarrassing post:

Cheney Indicted

For abuse of prisoners. And some don’t believe God exists.

As I (and others) pointed out, Sullivan’s excitement was stunningly misplaced. The prosecutor who brought this turkey is a lunatic, and the case is going nowhere.

Sullivan, mortified, pulled the trick performed by little kids all over the world, after they yell: “Hey, Mom! Watch this!” . . . and then fall right on their ass.

They bluster through it. They stand up, put on a serious face, and say: “I meant to do that.”

When a kid does it, it’s cute. When Andrew Sullivan does it, it’s just pathetic.

Sullivan tried to shrug off his embarrassing comments as a joke, in a post titled Patterico and Code:

It seems that the right-wing blogger [that’s me! — P] was immune to the irony in my post about Cheney that noted he was indicted for “abuse of prisoners.”

Oh, it was ironic. I see.

It was that trademark deadpan wit!

Patterico describes this obviously wry remark thus: “Anderson Sullivan”; “shrieking, hysterical”; “wets his pants”. Drudge had the same headline, without the deadpan commentary. Was he shrieking and hysterical?

No, because Drudge didn’t include the stupid line about how there really is a God, and you did, Sullivan.

Let’s closely examine the concept that Sullivan didn’t get fooled by the news that Cheney had been indicted. Yes: let us carefully consider that possibility — and then laugh heartily and discount it entirely. Because if Sullivan didn’t get taken in by this stupid story, it would be the first stupid story in history that didn’t take him in.

Let’s review, shall we?

This is the hysterical blogger who was taken in by the idiot Kos rumor that Trig Palin was the offspring of Sarah Palin’s daughter. Even the morons at Kos were so embarrassed that they deleted the post. Not Sullivan. He still wants the medical records!

This is the moron who, when there was a bogus rumor that Sarah Palin had been involved in an affair with Todd Palin’s former business partner, immediately wrote two breathless posts about it, including one that said, and I quote:

Todd Palin’s former business partner files an emergency motion to have his divorce papers sealed. Oh God.

“Oh God.”

Note the studied irony and the wry tone of this deadpan remark! Golf clap, everyone!

Some idiot reader of his wrote him to say that Sarah Palin had named her kids after characters in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and he fell for it.

Sullivan hastily concluded that McCain had “clearly” said “horseshit” during a debate — and then took down the post when it became clear McCain had done no such thing.

There is a pattern here, and it is not a pattern of studied reflection and wry, deadpan commentary. It is a pattern of jumping to conclusions like a teenaged girl screaming OMG!!!11!1! at every idiot rumor out there.

I deemed Sullivan to be “shrieking and hysterical,” not out of homophobia, but rather because he is shrieking and hysterical — as the above examples amply demonstrate.

This is not a man with high journalistic standards. His idea of research is quoting Wikipedia — or if he’s feeling really energetic, Democrat-penned opposition papers. His idea of Serious Journalism includes discussing the love life of Sarah Palin’s sister and the MySpace page of Levi Johnston. His idea of debate commentary consists of incisive observations like this: “Piper is poking Trig in the eye!”

Having implied that I am homophobic, Sullivan goes on to criticize me by pointing to . . . my commenters.

So we’re judging each other by our commenters, eh, Andrew Sullivan? I’m happy to play that game.

Because, you see, shortly after Sullivan linked my post, this blog got a rush of nasty comments coming here from his blog, saying disgusting things the likes of which we haven’t seen here in quite some time.

Here are some of the comments left by Sullivan’s fans. Keep in mind that — according to his own standards — these comments all reflect directly on Andrew Sullivan. First we’ll hear from “timpundit”:

But, I’m guessing you don’t care as long as you can call a gay man a a’faggot’, right?

Nobody had used that word until “timpundit” did. Another commenter stole the name of a regular commenter here named “Icy Truth” and said:

My wife is fat and a raging bitch, but it sure is fun to make fun of Sully! Heh.

Then we have “RightWingTruthTeller” who addressed another of my commenters by saying:

Scott, I suspect that your wife falls into the obese category as well. 1-800-JENNY-CRAIG.

But the classiest Sullivan fan was clearly Mitch, who left this charming comment about Sarah Palin:

Really, Karl? Sarah is so hot I’d lick her asshole ten ways till Sunday.

Normally, I’d delete such comments, but I have decided to let them stand as a testament to the class of Sullivan’s fans — and therefore, according to Sullivan’s own rules, to Sullivan himself.

In a separate post, Sullivan salves his wounded ego by posting an e-mail from a “reader” talking about what a great blogging day he had. Various topics are listed, including one he stole from my site without attribution from a Justin Levine post. Sullivan then says:

You never know what you’re going to be blogging about from day to day. As I got up this morning and removed my urine streaked boxers, put on my hysterical dress, and sat down to shriek, the world just opened up.

Wow. I really wounded him.

But, Sully? When I said you had wet your pants with excitement over the prospect of a Cheney indictment, I didn’t mean you had wet your boxers with urine.

You shrieking, hysterical moron.

  1. I gave Sullivan a pass for a long time because he reported on Jesse Dirkhising and because he made some sense in those days. He has long since used up any tolerance I had of his hysterics.

    Ken Hahn (ed0002)

  2. Pat:

    you really shouldn’t insult shrieking, hysterical morons by comparing them to the unhinged one like that.

    they have feelings too!

    redc1c4 (27fd3e)

  3. I wonder how long it is going to take for some Obama supporter to be as badly disappointed in Obama as Sully was with Bush.

    (Historical note: Sullivan broke with Bush when, after the MA “gay marriage” ruling, Bush came out for a federal amendment on traditional marriage. Sully never understood that.)

  6. Why in the world is Andi so angry at Palin, I don’t see any evidence that she is a “Christianist” but rather she is more a classical liberal who believes in freedom…

    When is the last time you EVER saw a liberal say something like this…

    “We believe that we have no more judicial options to pursue. So we may disagree with kind of the foundation there, the rationale behind the ruling, but our responsibility is to proceed forward with the law and abide by the constitution,” Palin said.

    Senator E. Buzz Miller, PhD (a964a3)

  7. Patterico,

    Oh how I love these posts. I’ll confess right here and now, when you go after Sully like this, I wet MY pants! I look forward to the next round.

    Regards,

  8. So…

    The Daily Dish is 25th on Technorati, and Paterrico is where exactly?

    When you have his readership, just be grateful that he lists you sometimes so he boosts your numbers, even if it is just to show how foolish you are.

    Michael (07fe69)

  9. Patterico, I’m a pretty loyal reader of yours. I think these posts are doing your blog a bit of a disservice, though. It’s obvious that AS has really gotten your blood to boil, but I just find it awkward reading this post… it’s like a couple having a huge fight in the middle of a crowded room. And I don’t, in any way, mean that to compare you and AS to a couple, I purely mean the feeling of awkwardness.

    The quality and substance of your normal posts are so far above this stuff, I just hate to see you being dragged down into the muck. I certainly will not stop reading the blog or anything, but I wanted to throw out what I take away from such posts.

    Justin (747191)

  10. Patterico is just trying to get his conservative bona fides back after his little love fest with Obama, for which he was properly ridiculed.

    What better way to do it than some good old fashioned Sullivan bashing? He brings up the whole Milky Loads bit nearly every time he criticizes Sullivan, not because it typically has any relevance to whatever Patterico is criticizing Sullivan about at the time, but because the whole “icky gay” stuff plays well with the conservative crowd he is trying to woo.

    Mr. Yugo (44cef5)

  11. I love the meme that to criticize Excitable Any = homophobia of icky gay stuff. These trolls are as predictable as the sun rising.

  12. Pat, have you considered that Shrieking power glutes is likely suffering from AIDS dementia?

    Thatguy (2bda65)

  13. We know Andy has AIDS, could he have a bit of syphilis dementia as well?

    wplyler (519ac8)

  14. It amuses me when I think that Sullivan was my favorite blogger for a while about 5 years ago. There may really be something medically wrong with him, because no other blogger/commentator has gone from respectable to deranged like he has.

  16. Urine streaked…?!? I’m afraid they’d be streaked with more than ur…. no, not gonna go there.

    stari_momak (80d043)

  17. I used to read Sullivan’s blog and even contributed. After the gay marriage thing, he started to get really strange. I even sent him an e-mail asking if he was OK. The response was a weird and angry e-mail back and it went downhill from there. I’m a physician and know about AIDS dementia and side effects of some meds that AIDS patients take. I think he is not hitting on all cylinders.

    As far as Patterico commenting on his lunacy; I would say that, as long as The Atlantic wants its brand on his ravings, he’s fair game. The trolls complaining that Sullivan has more hits just confirm that there are a lot of idiots out there. The last election should convince us of that, if nothing else.

    Mike K (2cf494)

  18. At this point, the worst thing a person can call Andrew Sullivan, I guess, is Andrew Sullivan. It’s not the gays, Andy, it’s just plain you.

    SarahW (a6e80b)

  19. The Daily Dish is 25th on Technorati, and Paterrico is where exactly?

    Thanks. We aweady know that Mr. Suwivan is a high-wanking bwogger.

    nk (2e727e)

  20. Mike K is right about the disease, co-disease, and treatments for both explain the fall from mediocrity to insanity.

    FWIW, he probably has some hearing loss. He ought to get that checked out.

    SarahW (a6e80b)

  21. 25th on Technorati? I didn’t know they stacked shit that high………..

    (One of these days, Andi is going to lose his legacy link on Drudge, and then we’ll see how lont TheAtlantic wants to keep him on the company letterhead)

  23. Patterico,
    Keep poking AS in the eye. He is condescending, pompous ass who deserves to have his work product strictly scrutinized. Good job.

    Perfect Sense (9d1b08)

  24. I am no fan of the Cheney/Rumsfeld “taking off the gloves” policy and think it helped fuel the Iraq insurgency and was wrong. I am glad it stopped. But to gleefully say Cheney getting indited by some rouge lunatic prosecutor is a good thing is just stupid.

    And while I think the policy was wrong, I also know we were facing potential catastrophic attacks. Which is why Cheney had the 1% doctrine of if a threat was just a 1% possibility you should treat it as 100% because of the potential risks. I still think Cheney and Rumsfeld were acting to protect us, albeit misguided.

    Would going after Rumsfeld and Cheney make things better? No, of course not. Just like constantly question Baby Trig’s paternity is a bad idea too.

    Joe (dcebbd)

  25. Heh. I love slapfights.

    Actually, the reason Sullivan gets such obscenely high blog traffic is that he has a front-page Drudge link. That’s also, no doubt, the reason the Atlantic is afraid to push him too hard.

    Upwards of 300K uniques a day is nothing to sneeze at. Particularly if you’re a print magazine bleeding money.

    S. Weasel (ed7c8f)

  26. Being gay just makes you gay, ‘glutes. It’s the shreiking, hysteria and derangement that make you a hysterical, deranged shrieker.

    Oh, did I add that “deranged”? Why, yes. Yes, I did.

    Remember when The Atlantic used to be reputable?

    Pablo (99243e)

  27. Andrew Sullivan is suffering from some age related problems similar to Jimmy Carter’s. (early onset of dementia?) I think the comment by the MD is right on. Their weird Liberal ideas get magnified and so does their self importance.

    All Liberals have some form of disconnect with reality but when they grow old they sometimes do some ranting that is clearly possessed!

    Todd Roth (a325d1)

  28. It is nice to think that Cheney isn’t exempt from the law. So many innocent men are in prison, it’s refreshing to see such a man held responsible for his actions.

    JT (c23bbc)

  29. Little late to the party there, JT. Or did Andi promise you frogmarching?

    Techie (62bc5d)

  30. If Mr Sullivan fell on his ass, doesn’t that mean he could have landed on any part of his body?

    The amused Dana (3e4784)

  31. Senator Miller asked:

    Why in the world is Andi so angry at Palin, I don’t see any evidence that she is a “Christianist” but rather she is more a classical liberal who believes in freedom…

    Because, deep down, Mr Sullivan knows that Governor Palin doesn’t respect him, thinks that there’s something wrong with him

    The intellectual Dana (3e4784)

  32. Mr. Yugo,

    He brings up the whole Milky Loads bit nearly every time he criticizes Sullivan, not because it typically has any relevance to whatever Patterico is criticizing Sullivan about at the time, but because the whole “icky gay” stuff plays well with the conservative crowd he is trying to woo.

    No, sweetie. On those few occassions that patterico has made reference to Sully’s…uh…colorful sex life, it is a paean to Sully’s blazing hypocrisy. Now back to Zastava with you for retooling.

    Pablo (99243e)

  33. Andi got his shorts in a wad;
    Some people don’t realize he’s God!
    So then he lashed out
    In a printed pout
    ‘Cause he couldn’t give Cheney his rod.

    The Limerick Avenger (3e4784)

  34. Ummm … Andrew,

    if your urine is leaving streak-marks in your boxers, it’s time to call Gregory House, M.D.

    .

    BumperStickerist (d00df1)

  35. Mr. Yugo – fwiw, Andrew dismissed out-of-hand the concern about Pozzies reinfecting other Pozzies with a different strain of HIV and, thus, having safe(r) sex with each other.

    Andrew called the medical evidence a “slim reed” and decided that bare-backing was just fine.

    BumperStickerist (d00df1)

  36. The comments in the other thread Patterico has noted here were all left by the same impostor, someone in Raleigh, North Carolina who may not realize that leaving a bunch of insane comments from the same IP address makes one easily trackable.

    I have marked those comments and hope that no further action will be required.

    Karl (f07e38)

  37. Thanks for the clarification – it’s funny that the Trollbots are using the same sockpuppetry techniques that have long ago been discredited. Where’s Thomas Ellers when you need him?

  38. You are all racist homophobes.

    JD (b96a9e)

  40. Also it’s worth re-linking Sullivan’s pre-Palin conspiracy theories, just to underscore that the rot has been setting in for years.

    Karl (f07e38)

  41. Patterico, I agree with you about Mr. Sullivan. He is anything but professional, and I suspect he knows it…and that fuels more ravings.

    I would just remind you of the famous advice about wrestling with a pig: it wastes your time, gets you all muddy, and the pig likes it.

    Laugh at Sullivan, pity his bizarreness, sure. But I wouldn’t engage him like a colleague. He is at the National Enquirer level of journalism, and you aren’t.

    Yes, National Enquirer does get stories right from time to time. So does Mr. Sullivan. The maxim about Shakespeare and typing monkeys comes to mind.

    Eric Blair (0ed61d)

  42. The speculation about AIDs and syphillis is further than I would go, as it is entirely possible to make the case that Excitable Andy of the RAWMUSLGLUTES fame is just bugfuck nuts.

    JD (b96a9e)

  43. The left-wing anarchists count on the civility of the rest of us when we are confronted with their hate-mongering and physical assault/battery.

    Note to mouthy gays/lesbians/transgendered in your face bigots; Not all of us are adverse to defending ourselves in the face of aggression. Even if some of you enjoy being soundly thrashed their is a point when even pain as pleasure becomes painful.

    I suspect your tolerance for pain is extremely thin.

    vet66 (56a0a8)

  44. Vet66: are you sure that you attached thast to the correct thread? Leftwing anarchists hardly seem to be the topic de thread; and while some would argue that Sullivan is a mouthy gay in your face bigot, it’s hard to see what in this thread is related to aggression and battery.

    aphrael (e0cdc9)

  45. Patterico you shouldn’t pick on Excitable Andy. It’s clearly not a fair fight.

    Brian Cobbs (9a684d)

  46. aphreal:

    Don’t question me. I’ll mop the floor with your ass.

    Vet66 (105b91)

  47. Patrick, FWIW,

    I’m the “real Mitch” whom that troll was name-jacking yesterday. I had posted something earlier in that day’s Cheney-indictment thread, and thus enjoyed the privilege — as did Icy Truth and perhaps others — of having one of the trolls post using my name.

    Mitch (890cbf)

  48. aphrael – That one seemed out of place to me as well. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of place.

    JD (b96a9e)

  49. Real Mitch – Similar has happened here several times to me, as well. It is the sign of a coward to try to make someone else look bad in such a manner.

    JD (b96a9e)

  50. Oh for heaven’s sake, just ignore the idiot. He doesn’t deserve notice. He doesn’t deserve a response.

    For all the wrong reasons, of course.

    Now I know that you can totally dress down and expose the typical emotionally challenged liberal with one had tied behind your back.

    Impressive!!!

  60. If Andy fell on his ass, wouldn’t he sprain his neck?

    I keed, I keed.

  61. My apologies to Timex —

    Andy’s Amazing Power-Glutes!
    They take a ramming and keep on jamming
    They take a pounding and keep rebounding
    They take a stiffy and still keep spiffy
    They take a pole and still stay whole
    They take big loads and don’t explode
    They take a pipe and still stay ripe

    And the obligatory: They take a licking and keep on . . . [I denounce myself]

    Icy Truth (aedb2f)

  62. Well, it wouldn’t be the first time that he “fell” on an ass.

    Icy Truth (aedb2f)

  63. Hey Patterico,
    Andrew Sullivan has the emotional quotient of a 11 year old girl. And he does take every single thing that any one says critically about him to heart.This is some one that you need to avoid. He lost his sanity a long time back and is now nothing more than Pimp#1 for..we all know who.

    For any one who read Peter Wehrner’s devastating takedown of Sullivan’s positon on Iraq, (including recalling some entire blog posts of this idiot back in the pre Iraq war days when he was a bandwagon supporter), you should know beyond any scintilla of doubt that this is a profoundly dishonest person we are dealing with – coupled with the fact that he has zero humility in admitting how mistaken he has been on abandoning support for the war.

    And if i may request you, please dont remind him of the “RawMuslgates” – he is positively embarrassed by that and he uses it as a cover to call you a homophobe.

    He does not deserve the status that he has – if this guy was not gay, he’d be just another blogger.And of course after pimping for Obama, he has now directed a lot more traffic. He has all the attention he craves for – dont give him any more.

    sincerely,

    NS (e241af)

  64. I think you need a lot more denouncing, Icy Truth.

    SPQR (72771e)

  65. I have been asking the same question for about six months now and have yet to get a answer.

    What happened to Andrew Sullivan?

    I enjoyed his commentary for a long while but over the last year or so, he has developed a complex. His logic has been unsound. His debate has been at best weak. He seems to think that the world is persecuting him. He jumps into situations with out nay forethought or direction. Is it possible that he is or has suffered some kind of breakdown?

    Magic (2b09b0)

  66. Magic, unlike some, I prefer not to discuss his health.

    But anything is possible, unfortunately.

    SPQR (72771e)

  67. Yes, but was it me, or was it the guy pretending to be me?

    Hmmm . . .

    Icy Truth (aedb2f)

  68. You know, for a long while there I was in the camp that said Sully should just be ignored, but after the whole Trig Trooferism episode, I’ve come to the conclusion that he really needs sustained, bitter mockery for his intellectual dishonesty, hackery, lack of perspective and general small-mindedness. And really, the Atlantic is long past the point where it needs to disassociate itself from his unhinged rantings.

    Long winded way of saying: thanks for this one, keep up the good work.

    Crank (af4dca)

  69. I’m kind of embarrassed I share the same last name with this doofus.

  74. I would hate to learn that I had been sullied (pun intended) by the Senate’s premier (even Obama slammed Schumer for it at the Al Smith dinner!) media whore.

    Icy Truth (aedb2f)

  75. Andrew Sullivan is why I am against gay marriage. I have some gay friends, and the idea that one of them would be fooled into spending their life with a shrieking lunatic like Andrew Sullivan is purely unacceptable.

    Yes, this is almost ironic. Andrew is a crazy, deranged, unstable, narcissistic egomaniac. I don’t know anyone with a college degree who takes him seriously. Oh, wait, did Howie Kurtz graduate from college?

    Karen (5b153d)

  76. Snark, from Patterico?

    I knew you had it in you.

    Rodney (b90114)

  77. Ridicule can be a powerful and potent weapon.

    It would appear that Patterico left a mark.

    Christopher Calandro (4016c8)

  78. Sorry, NS. Excitable Andi’s claim that the use of his old nom de guerre makes you a “homophobe” should be greeted the same way as the President-Elect’s defenders’ claim that bringing up his numerous questionable-at-best associations makes you a “racist”: with contempt, and perhaps a bit more repetition and emphasis.

    Top blogger status, much like the Presidency, does not mean you get to decide what words mean. It does not mean you get to erase your history. And it absolutely does not mean that what you say is more correct than what anyone else says. All it means, in this case, is that lots of people see what you write. And when you’re as far beyond rational thought as Mr. Trig Trutherist, your out-of-proportion traffic means that you require even more emphatic rebuttal than if your blog was a bleak wall of text where nobody ever visits.

    The “ignore him” path is nice in theory, but sadly, not getting a link from Patterico isn’t going to make that Drudge Report link go away, which is the only thing that will return him to the obscurity which is his derangementright. At least in providing a properly-sourced, linked and sober (well, snickery anyway) appraisal, Patterico stands a chance of showing visitors what actual coherent thought looks like.

    So I say: Rock on, ye Beagle of the Legals.

    PCachu (e072b7)

  79. Who is Andy Sullivan? Is he a blogger or something?

    Is he really gay? It doesn’t show. He doesn’t ever mention it.

    Ironic (91f0c5)

  80. Sullivan used to be one of my daily reads. He was thoughtful and interesting, even when I disagreed with him. He has, however, become a preening, whiny little girl of a man. And that’s insulting to preening, whiny little girls.

    physics geek (6669a4)

  81. I’m really kind of astonished that Andy has trolls to defend him. I thought at this point he was just some sort of social experiment, a joke among his blogging peers.

    If it came to be that a majority if not all of his e-mailed support was from pranksters egging his crazy on, I’d not be suprised.

    Sortelli (0c35b8)

  82. I don’t know anyone with a college degree who takes him seriously.

    I do. Which is sad, because otherwise they seem perfectly normal.

    Jim Treacher (592cb4)

  83. Pretty sure Andrew got suckered by that kook who youtubed Cheney meant to shoot Harry Winnington (or whatever his name is)duck mishap and also Andrew bought the McCain plagiarized himself in a speech and also the one about the POW quote from the book.

  86. What I would like to see is Milky Loads open up his comments, see what happens. It was humorous when he invited all the Paulnuts over as a place to hang and chant, but forgot that comments need to be open.

    PS: I demand to see EA’s psychiatric records!

  87. Andrew Sullivan is why I’m ex-gay.

    Well, not really, but he sure makes it easy.

    No, Miss DeGeneres is intentionally funny at times.

    No, I don’t!!!!

  91. You shrieking, hysterical moron.

    Heh.

    I was really creeped out when Sullivan evidenced an uncontrollable obsession with Sarah Palin and her uterus….which I also found very confusing. A gay man obsessed with a heterosexual woman’s reproductive activity. Hm. It still doesn’t make sense but suffice it say, he is and most likely will always remain a hateful misogynist.

  92. Dana, I think there is a subset of gay men who really do hate women in a bizarre way. Sullivan certainly was no fan of Hillary.

    Man, what I wouldn’t give for Hillary to be the president-elect, by the way.

  93. But Patterico, is Sullivan a good man?

    I guess if we overlook all the previous nastiness, we’ve got to conclude that he is, in fact, a decent fellow. After all, so many Americans like him – especially those within the national press.

  94. A gay man acting like a 15 year old on the rag before the big dance and a fresh pimple on her face?

    Who would have thunk it.

    My what an effective evisceration. Now Sullivan knows how Greenwald must have felt. But it won’t stop him. He lost his mind when Bush opposed gay marriage and he’s not getting it back any time soon.

    Sarah is so hot I’d lick her asshole ten ways till Sunday.

    I’ll admit that when the imagery of what male homosexuals are associated with is evoked, I do become “homophobic.” Sort of like my becoming “stinkphobic” when dealing with, say, dirt-encrusted, deranged homeless people. Or “germphobic” when dealing with a crowded room of hacking, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, drippy-nose people, who, worse of all, are nonchalant about spreading their microbes all over the place.

    So, yep, I can’t help but go “bleech” regarding such situations, which is what I suspect a lot of people in general do — if they’re being honest with themselves and others — when gay behavior is pondered. And, therefore, there is a core of legitimacy and appropriateness to so-called homophobia.

    He’s a heterophobe. Breeders freak him out.

  98. Mark,

    Good point.

  101. Some 5 years ago I saw Sullivan as a truthseeker, the highest praise I can give to someone in the political world, That means goring an ox that may be your own.

    WTF happened, Andrew? You went south on Iraqi freedom for gay marriage? WTF? I’m with you on the issue as is 40% or so of the country I’d guess. In ten years it will be 50%. In a generation it won’t even be an issue. And you give up your truthseeker proclivity for what? Flailing against a wall that will fade on it’s own. I’m not angry. I’m dissapointed. Dissaponted that someone that understood that traded it?….forgot it? I don’t really care why. You might have been a bridge. Now you’ll just be a guy trading on his gift with words and sexual choices. You could have been a contender, Mr. Sullivan.

  102. But Patterico, is Sullivan a good man?

    — Of course he is! He only spews hate and repeats unfounded rumors because he loves . . . *choke* this — *sob* *sniffle* nation . . . so MUCH!!!
