I don’t pay any attention to the hysterics of Andrew Sullivan anymore, but a colleague emailed me this:
I’m sorry I don’t feel great sympathy for the legions of conservative commentators who kept drinking and spewing the Bush Kool-Aid, knowing full well it had nothing to do with conservatism, until they are now forced to reveal the truth. Here’s an amazing quote from Rush Limbaugh yesterday:
“There have been a bunch of things going on in Congress, some of this legislation coming out of there that I have just cringed at, and it has been difficult coming in here, trying to make the case for it when the people who are supposedly in favor of it can’t even make the case themselves – and to have to come in here and try to do their jobs.”
All together now: Awwww. I’m so sorry Limbaugh had to lie through his teeth to try and keep in the good graces of his Republican masters. Have you ever heard of intellectual honesty, Mr Limbaugh? You can look it up in the dictionary.
This from the guy who thinks he’s really fooling people by telling us that John Kerry would have been better than Bush on national security. This from the guy who thinks he’s fooling people into thinking that his turn against Bush was all about the Administration’s so-called bungling of the Iraq War and had nothing to do with the Federal Marriage Amendment (oh, that’s right, I’m not supposed say that; it’s an “unanswerable smear.”)
What was that about “intellectual honesty,” Andrew?
