While I would not go as far as ILoveCapitalism does in labeling Andrew Sullivan in a comment to my most recent post, I do wonder as does he at the lengths to which this one-time thoughtful pundit goes to defend Barack Obama and trash his candidate’s adversaries.
ILC’s not the only one to point out the “twists and turns” Andrew takes to defend his man.
Sullivan’s blog this weekend has been entertaining, to say the least. In one weekend, he has completed reversed his arguments on experience needed to be President, a candidate’s personal life as an appropriate subject in an election and just about any reason he had to vote for Obama in his analyses of the Palin pick. I’ve watched him twist his arguments to further his causes before, but this has been nothing short of breathtaking.
