Andrew Sullivan as Andy Divine, episode MMMX: Trump vs Kim Jong-un & James Damore vs ‘Diversity Czars’. Queer Atheist comments

Andy Divine at full screech has the mesmerizing quality of seeing a plane crash or watching a traffic accident happen before your eyes.

The blustering threats exchanged between The Donald and Kim Jong-un sends our Drama Queen into a fits of historically framed distemper! Andy and the New Democrats take a bow for your politically enabling of this Monster.

But not satisfied with his ex cathedra pronouncement on this pissing contest between two very dangerous political posers, he then turns his attention to a wan defense of computer wunderkind James Damore. No need to go any further than his advocacy/defense of ‘The Bell Curve’, to see the argumentative model, the framing  he uses in defense of the misogyny of Mr. Damore. The argument that women are “biologically unsuited”  to coding – call this ‘insight’ very surprising, as my niece and her immediate superior are both women who do coding for a living.  And are very well compensated. Not to speak of both being  promoted to high level positions in their company. Andy continues to demonstrate his ignorance of both the politics and the social history of the American Present. That perpetual ignorance is the engine that powers his logorrhea.

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
