Andrew Sullivan as Andy Divine, episode MMMXLIII: Andy takes his political demons for a walk in the sun! Political Cynic reports

Mr. Sullivan’s screeching political hysterics become more acute with each successive week! Who and where is the ‘Left’ he inveighs against? The Boston Police and the city’s Mayor? Free Speech is important, and the why of the censorship exercised by both the Boston city and its Police department should be fully investigated by a Grand Jury: will the Boston City Attorney or her equivalent take such a step?

There is no ‘Left’ in this country, it was purged by Sullivan’s political precursors: the Nixon/Mundt/McCarren/McCarthy axis, with the active collaboration of the Schlesinger/Niebuhr ADA Democrats, in the late 40’s and the 50’s. Sullivan’s unashamed, in deed, unapologetic ignorance of American history is on full display, for an audience whose historical memory reaches back to Reagan, or at least to The Reagan Mythology.

His rhetorical strategy is to take his political demons out for a walk in the sun, each week, and await the praise of his worshipful followers. I could only stomach the first of his usual trilogy of jejune political moralizing.
