Andrew Sullivan notes an irony in the Islam debate: It’s a little amazing to me to watch some liberals who get extremely upset at religious people refusing to bake a cake for someone else’s wedding on religious grounds, suddenly seeing … Continue reading
Reality is starting to assert itself. You won’t read this at the Drudge Report, but evidence is accumulating that Obamacare has been working over the past three years, and it’s poised to be a success moving into its “insurance exchange … Continue reading
Andrew Sullivan recently made the following observation: [T]he GOP Obama faces is arguably the most partisan, factional and deranged that it has been since I started observing it in the mid-1980s. Yes, and the GOP is nevertheless on track to gain … Continue reading
Andrew Sullivan on viewing Fox News the day after Obama’s resounding electoral victory: I watched for Schadenfreude purposes. These charlatans and money-grubbers have turned the broad tradition of Anglo-American conservatism into Southern Fried Fanaticism – and I wanted to see them crackle … Continue reading
Andrew Sullivan, in his just released Newsweek cover-essay, explains: Barack Obama had to come out of a different closet. He had to discover his black identity and then reconcile it with his white family, just as gays discover their homosexual identity … Continue reading
Humanism vs. Nihilism: Has the Occupy Movement Gotten Away from Chris Hedges’ Nonviolent Vision for It?
From its inception, Chris Hedges has been a key intellectual supporting the Occupy movement, and he sees its lineage in the nonviolent tradition of Tolstoy, Thoreau, Gandhi, and King: absorb blows without returning them. This (presumably) arouses the conscience of … Continue reading
Andrew Sullivan today predicts that in 2012 the Palin model of full media isolation and epistemic closure will be picked up as a strategy across the Republican candidate spectrum: Palin led the way by refusing any real scrutiny and any press … Continue reading
Eloquent. Shocking. Pro-Catholic. Johann Hari on Pope Joseph Ratzinger’s flagrant criminality, and why he should not be above the law (and notice Richard Dawkins standing behind Hari): Andrew Sullivan, a Catholic, has also been wise to Ratzinger. Here’s some of what Sullivan said, … Continue reading
In a recent blog post, Andrew Sullivan writes that the whole dust-up surrounding the Ground Zero mosque has been a revelation to him: conservatives, even the intellectual ones, really do make no distinctions between your average walking around Muslim American and Osama Bin Laden; they … Continue reading
Inspired by Andrew Sullivan’s “The View from Your Window” feature at his blog (in which he posts what his readers see from their windows), I thought I might periodically start putting, on my blog, posts titled: The view from my … Continue reading
. More than a few thoughtful political observers think Barack Obama’s health care reform success secures the place of his presidency in history. Here are three: Matthew Yglesias: Now that it’s done, Barack Obama will go down in history as … Continue reading
I saw the above image at Andrew Sullivan’s blog today. Clever. And it’s working on a number of levels: as an ironic poke at creationists, of course. And as a substitute of one cultural star (Obama) for another cultural star (Darwin). But it can … Continue reading
He’s still a Tory conservative, but he’s given up on American “movement conservatism”. Here’s some of the reasons that he gave today (from a longer list that you can see here): I cannot support a movement that would back a … Continue reading
Glenn Beck’s got a one hundred year plan (oh, shit): “We need to start thinking like the Chinese.” In other words, Glenn Beck thinks that focused, insurgent, belligerent, fanatically committed mass movement Maoism—with its disciplined cell groups, ideological purity, and relentless propaganda—is the right … Continue reading
Andrew Sullivan Talks to Stephen Colbert about Barack Obama’s First Year Since Being Elected President
Here. Know hope.
Andrew Sullivan this weekend wrote an admiring piece on Barack Obama’s rope-a-dope political shrewdness here. Money quote: He is thinking further ahead than the Republicans. . . . And . . . when you look at it closely, you see that … Continue reading
Is the New Atheism an Unpleasant Blend of the Academy with Cable News Culture? Andrew Sullivan Thinks So, and Takes After Jerry Coyne and Daniel Dennett
Jerry Coyne, at his blog, summarized Daniel Dennett’s talk this weekend at the big atheist convention ho-down in Burbank, California this weekend (and which I went to) thus: Dan Dennett talked about interviews with active priests and ministers who are atheists, and … Continue reading
