The audacity of Andrew Sullivan’s audacity

On the issue of the “politics of personal destruction,” Sully the Great scribbles angrily (via):

When Andrew Breitbart offers $100,000 for a private email list-serv archive, essentially all bets are off. Every blogger or writer who has ever offered an opinion is now on warning: your opponents will not just argue against you, they will do all they can to ransack your private life, cull your email in-tray, and use whatever material they have to unleash the moronic hounds of today’s right-wing base.

[…] There is not a whit of thoughtfulness about this, not an iota of pretense that it might actually advance the conversation about how to deal with, say, a world still perilously close to a second Great Depression, a government that is bankrupt, two wars that have been or are being lost, an energy crisis that is also threatening our planet’s ecosystem, and a media increasingly incapable of holding the powerful accountable.

Meanwhile, the GOP leaders, having done all they can to destroy a presidency by obstructing everything and anything he might do or have done to address the crippling problems bequeathed him by his predecessor, are now also waging a scorched earth battle to prevent the working poor from having any real access to affordable health insurance.

This is what the right now is: no solutions, just anger, paranoia, insecurity and partisan hatred.

Um, let me just remind you, my dear readers, that this is the same clown who, among other things, has had a close-to-two year obsession with Sarah Palin’s uterus, and is also the same “serious writer” who devoted a significant portion of his blogspace over at the left-leaning The Atlantic trying to “find out the truth” about John McCain’s “POW cross in the dirt” claim.

That is all.
