Wieseltier Takedown of Sullivan

By on 2.9.10 | 9:26AM

Leon Wieseltier has a brilliant takedown of Andrew Sullivan at Sullivan's old outlet, the New Republic.

Hardly a day goes by when I don't stop myself from posting a rebuttal of some argument Sullivan's made or some falsehood that he's promoted. And that's true of everyone here at TAS: if you didn't hold back, the blog would devolve into a catalogue of his errors and misstatements. Especially when Sullivan writes about the pope or Catholicism, I, as someone who knows the first thing about it, am always shocked by his craziness. Wieseltier's topic is Sullivan's treatment of Israel and American Jews, and it's pretty damning.
