Okay, I understand why somebody obscure who would otherwise never be invited on the programs would cross the WGA picket line to go on Colbert or the Daily Show. Not that I think it’s admirable, but I think it’s understandable. But Andrew Sullivan can get invited on to those shows during normal times; it’s not as if scabbing presents his only window of opportunity.
And can I just say how very, truly, deeply moved I am hearing the gospel of post-partisan politics preached by a man who once wrote:
The middle part of the countryâ€”the great red zone that voted for Bushâ€”is clearly ready for war. The decadent Left in its enclaves on the coasts is not deadâ€”and may well mount what amounts to a fifth column.
I’d give him more credit for the personal evolution if I didn’t suspect that he’ll revert back to form the moment it becomes politically expedient to do so.
