So... Sully Isn't Sully?

Apparently, Andrew Sullivan's blog isn't solely his work, and turns out to have been a group blog largely ghost-written by two other people.

I'm not sure if I find any solace at all in discovering that his logical inconsistencies and bizarre fixations are instead part of a group psychosis.

How about you?

Stopped reading him ages ago. Not worth my time.

Well, there's strength in numbers, after all. I'm sure with such a strong delusion he must pay people to tell him he's being reasonable and misunderstood.

A totally irrelevant writer and he has been for many moons. Haven't bothered with his diatribe in as long. Not surprised it's a "circle jerk" sort of blog. I am surprised he has friends.

Will the discovery cause bloggers (e.g.present company) from trying to drive traffic to her?

On the other hand, my list of "must read" blogs is a lot shorter than it used to be. (used to be that I had to read quite a few to get the big picture. Now, I read one and find out what all the rest have written about.

It's all good, he stewed in his juices. And Andy gave himself a B+.

Oh, I could tell when it wasn't Sullivan. No one can write the self-congratulatory, narcissistic drool than Andrew Sullivan writes.

What bothers me is that he gets PAID for that junk.

I doubt that "Excitable Andy" really exists at all. I haven't ever seen his birth certificate.

It's Andy's Menage a Trois Blog.

Wasn't this guy's claim to relevance always that he was the most trafficked one "man" op in the 'verse? That and being a gay "conservative". Looks like, as with all these moronic hoaxes that pervade our politics and media it was based on Big Lie Theory. I don't think even Goebbels would have thought it wise to base so much on BLT though. As we see, when it falls it all falls at once.

With Andy, two things were always in the forefront: 1) he was HUGE on gay marriage---putting that issue above all others, even the GWOT; and, 2) it was always apparent his(their?)judgment on individuals was consistently clouded by whether he/they would love to have sex with the individaul they were analyzing! The drooling over the prospect of fellating BHO was palpable!

I stopped reading his/their blog when those two "items" began to predominate serious discussions.
