The spectacle of Andrew Sullivan complaining about the negative effects of commentators is almost too sad to read.
The victims of these commentators pile up. The commentators merely pile on to the next one.
Like Paul Krugman, perchance, viciously attacked over and over again by Sullivan and his followers and fellow travellers? Hit with ludicrous accusations over and over, despite his repeated and complete debunking of such? Strawman arguments left and right? The hypocrisy would be funny, were it not so terrible.
