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 country—the great red zone that voted for Bush—is clearly ready for war. The decadent Left in its enclaves on the coasts is not dead—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.
