  4. “The problem is that there is a large pool of commentators who really are just as oriented on the notion of winning as the politicians that they criticize.”

    Words from a wise man (in another context, but still true, nonetheless).

  7. Scott,
    Believe me, I wouldn’t stay on his case if he didn’t ask me to. :)

  8. All true, but Sullivan is hardly the right person to be making the case for objectivism. He carried the administration’s water as much as anybody in the runup and the first months of the war. Then a switch was thrown in his head and everything done by Republicans was evidence of a facist takeover. That has continued to this day.

  9. Well, actually, it would seem that it would make him an excellent example: someone who supported a set of actors and when that set of actors were seen not to acting in concert with his values, he began criticizing those actors. He did not stay with his co-partisans no matter what.

    Having a point of view and arguing for it is not what I am critiquing, but rather I am arguing against sticking with your side no matter what.

    And I would dispute the notion the Sullivan is arguing that there is a fascist takeover of the US. He has been quite reticent on the torture issue, yes, but I don’t see any intellectual dishonesty in his position.
