I have to give Bruce McQuain credit. He writes, today: I know this comes as a shock – shock I tell you – but the left is just in a tizzy today about the GOP Senate caucus’s unanimous decision not to allow anything to go forward in the Senate’s lame duck session until the tax […]

HEY BILLY: You’ve nailed this one. I am going to die laughing at one of the most spectacular dumbells of my time on this planet. Andrew Sullivan, you are just darling, you adorable little fireball, you. You’re “radicalized”! Is that what it is, Andy, when you finally come to the bankruptcy of your under-writing those […]

I’ve been pretty much silent on this berth are controversy since its beginning, making only an occasional comment, preferring instead to let DavidL take the lead.  In any event I am pretty much in agreement with what he has been saying. That said, I notice a post this morning that I find hard to resist, […]

I haven’t commented on this Tiller thing yet, mostly because  there hardly seems a point in discussing at any length, something that wasn’t “all in”, as yet. You will admit the story broke rather quickly. I didn’t comment on it at all, (here, or elsewhere…) though David did pretty well with it, here, insofar as laying […]

James at OTB: Having initially been highly skeptical of Hillary Clinton’s appointment as Secretary of State, partly on the basis that she had neither diplomatic experience nor a diplomatic temperament, I feel obliged to pass on this observation from Joe Klein (via Andrew Sullivan): Clinton, who can be spiky, has re-emerged as a natural diplomat.

Posted by Patrick Appel, quest blogging on Daily Dish, Miss Andrea Sullivan’s blog, with respect to her obsession with proving Trig Palin to be a bastard:: I don’t believe Sarah Palin is capable of pulling off such a cover-up. And, like Alex Massie and John Schwenkler, I don’t understand what is being accomplished by continued […]

Attention  Jim Manzi at The Corner: Here is Andrew Sullivan responding to Ezra Klein’s paean to socialized health care in the U.K.: One reason I’m a conservative is the British National Health Service. Until you have lived under socialism, it sounds like a great idea. It isn’t misery – although watching my parents go through the system […]

Imagine if Sarah Palin backed up one of her political opinions with the assertion that it comported with the doctrine of her church. I will wait and wait for Andrew Sullivan to denounce Biden as a Christianist. That’s Ann Althouse, and that’s the BitsBlog Snark of the day.

It not clear who going to win the presidential election come November.  It is clear who has lost already.   The loser is Andrew the Excitable, b/k/a Andrew Sullivan, late of Atlantic.   Ace is doing the dirty work, actually reading Andrew’s ravings, so we are spared the pain.  Ace: He really believes that Bristol Palin is […]

I note McQ jabing at Sullivan again… and rightly: Check out this Sullivan post entitled “The Press is asking questions”: In other words: doing their job. And the McCain camp is appalled: A senior McCain campaign official said the McCain camp was appalled that these rumors had not only been spread around liberal blog sites […]
