John Adams Blog

Neocon says Pope Gay.

They say politics makes strange bedfellows. Evidently, Catholic neoconservatives don't care who they get into bed with, as follows. (From Chronicles online)
On his website, Andrew Sullivan has proclaimed Benedict XVI the “gayest Pope ever,” following up on earlier posts comparing Benedict to Liberace and calling him “the control queen of the Vatican.” Yet, the NRO crowd remains in love with Sullivan, with Michael Novak praising his “brave witness” and “love for the Church,” Jonah Goldberg congratulating him on his “engagement,” and the others anxious to seek Sullivan’s approval for their own pet schemes (and displaying their sadness when he withholds it).
Sullivan regularly gives self-absorbed, petulant narcissists a bad name. Why does any decent person (never mind self-respecting conservative) care what he has to say, about anything?

Who here still reads Sullivan? Any reasonable conservative stopped reading his blog years ago. Thus, I reject your claims that people at NRO think Sullivan is anything but a weasel.

In fact, Paleocons have more in common with Sullivan than neocons because in their mutual hatred for Bush and the war in Iraq.

Federal Farmer: Do you actually read NRO? Sullivan's opinions have received nothing but well-deserved scorn from them for years.

Now a lot of these pundits do know each other personally. Goldberg was congratulating Sullivan for his Time gig and simply passing along the rumor that he might be "engaged." Being civilized and friendly to those who disagree with you is actually a good thing.

And no, I have not looked at Sullivan's blog in ages.

At least he didn't call the Pope a "Girlie-Man."
