Andrew Sullivan, once a wise maverick of a thinker, now has but two modes of argument: self-righteous and weird. In this sample of the latter, the once-worth-reading Sullivan imagines Hillary Clinton as some 21st century Napoleon with aspirations to control the Middle East (really), and imagines Republicans as subdued serfs-in-waiting, happy to cheer for Hillary because–wait for it–a pro-Iraq-war Democrat such as Hillary legitimates the Bush presidency. Wow. I mean, wow. The publication of such laugh-compelling gas-baggery must give hope-for-a-book-deal to every self-serious, tinfoil hatted yahoo with an opinion and an Internet connection (and a thesaurus).
