Saint Andrew the Incontinent, Throws in the Towel

I noticed Glenn making comments about Andrew Sullivan giving up blogging. [1]

IN JOHN CARTER’S WORDS, I STILL LIVE: Andrew Sullivan is going to stop blogging. No, blogging isn’t dead. [2] And InstaPundit gets more pageviews than pretty much everyone who’s calling blogging dead. But I can understand Andrew quitting. For me, the real strain isn’t the blogging, but having to pay close attention to the news all the time. The news is usually depressing, when it’s not angering, and that’s doubly true for the Obama years. But I’m not going anywhere anytime soon.

Well, it must be particularly depressing for Saint Andrew, who for the life of him, can’t figure out this most recent election. Yes, I’ve been watching his rather morose output . He’s basically just giving up, following that. Fully understandable, why Glenn doesn’t mention that.

But I will.

I suggest that the reason Glen is thriving is precisely because he’s not a Kool Aid drinker like Sullivan always has been. Well, at least since he decided to go crazy years ago.

Sullivan’s transition from an outspoken conservative to an outspoken leftist was the direct cause of his readership falling into John Crapper’s elegant device. It was a move that his readership numbers never recovered from.

Certainly, he got a number of newspaper berths over the years, at leftist rags, and kept himself in money, but he’d have done far better if he’d retained his common sense. Sad to say, he never did.

And to this day he doesn’t understand why, I’m quite sure.
