Andrew Sullivan and Wingnut Welfare

From driftglass:

Bridges may collapse. Hospitals, schools and shopping malls may be abandoned and become home to field mice and tumbleweed and roving bands of Jill Stein voters. Hurricanes may wash whole counties away, and actual fascists may overrun the United States government. But come figurative Hell or literal high water, you may always count on the fact that Beltway will always find a way to make damn sure sure its legions of useless, card-carrying hacks and has-beens never miss a meal.

For example, a few years ago, America’s most famous gay, Catholic, Tory, “True Conservative” NY Magazine non-blogger and Washington D.C. shut-in, Andrew Sullivan, was having regular, well-remunerated in-print freakouts over the horrors of Teh!Encroaching!Liberal!McCarthyism!

The left is turning really, really ugly again.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
