Tom Maguire explains why I delinked Andrew Sullivan years ago:
His big finish:
I want to apologize to my readers for dropping this ball. And congratulate the National Enquirer for following the facts where they eventually led.
There’s courage in that. Pulitzer-level courage.
Oh, there was Pulitzer-level courage in sticking with the “Trig spawned by space aliens” angle too. National Enquirer level courage.
For myself, I am stuck on the simpler theory that Andrew wants to bash what he sees as homophobic Republicans, not seemingly sympathetic Dems.
That plus (perhaps — dare I say it?) AIDS-induced dementia? In which case one can only pity. But still not link.
And actually, in Sullivan’s case, it’s more like Weekly World News courage.
