Hell Hath No Fury....Like Andrew Sullivan Scorned
Andrew Sullivan, who is my favorite blogger to read by far, has been on the war path as of late against Bush. Partly out of self-interest, partly out of a sense of betrayl, he seems determined to through sand in the axles of the GW2004 campaign. Well, here is one guy it worked on - Sullivan's constant pressing on Bush's Spending record is one of the key reasons while I'll be voting 3rd party this election (tentatively, but becoming more firm by the day). However, no matter how angry Sullivan is at the administration, this quote seems as overkill
The fact is: the GOP is using an attack on members of their own families to get a few votes in rural parts of swing states. They've used race in the past to achieve this kind of effect. Now gays are the new blacks.
Don't get me wrong, I agree that the GOP's targeting of homosexual's is disgusting. However, saying that gays are the new blacks is simply reinforcing the old canard that the GOP is and has been a bunch of racists. I expected Sullivan to have higher standards than to play that game.
