Reynolds and Sullivan

. . . are having a bit of a spat. A very polite one, so far.

No linky.

Sully loves attn from Reynolds, of any kind

Link fixed.

If only Sully were as generous with his links as Glenn is.

In what alternate universe is that link fixed? (Not fixed on IE running on XP at home or at work.)

Posted by: Don at May 20, 2005 09:13 PM

Yipes! MULTIPLE typos in the html. Very sloppy of me. It should work now.

Are you drunk??

Posted by: beautifulatrocities at May 21, 2005 03:28 PM

It is working now.

No, but I was half-asleep when I wrote the post. How embarrassing. At least I'm not obsessing about Star Wars.

I wrote to Sullivan several months ago giving him detailed reasons why wrapping an Israeli flag around someone was only torture if that someone was a raging anti-Semite. I also gave him examples of why his position that al Qaeda operatives were untitled to Geneva Convention protection was wrong. His response? He replied "You sicken me." I have retained those e-mails for future reference.

Sullivan is a lightweight. He has very sketchy historical knowledge, particularly about military and American history. He has no comprehension of how our federal system and sharing of powers is supposed to work. He continues to make bunches of unsupported assertions on a variety of topics. When challanged, he usually replies, not with reasoned argument, but with personal insults. "Homophobe" is one of his most often used ones.

In addition to that, I'm still curious, as are many others, as to exactly what became of the 200 grand he raised to keep his blog site going, after which he promptly closed most of its functions down and went to Europe. Hmmmm.

Sully has become largely a caricature of himself. It's actually rather sad in some ways.

I'm not upset about the money--though plenty of us are laboring away in the vineyards for free--but it's another nice little stick to poke him with. (And I do not know what his medical costs are, but imagine they are a good deal higher than mine.)

I'd rather read Christopher Hitchens all day long: there's a truly independent thinker. He still has a certain romance about Marxism, but he's clear-eyed about the present conflict.

But Michael Kelly was the best. R.I.P.

Sullivan's latest is to excoriate anyone who dares to criticize the honesty and veracity of the International Red Cross. The IRC is a corrupt, Leftist and Islamofascist dominated organization. The IRC did squat to help the Jews in WWII. The IRC won't let the Israelis have a Star Of David on their Red Cross flag, but it's OK for the Muslim countries to have a Red Crescent. The IRC falls hook, line, and sinker (as does Sullivan) for the claims of "brutality" made by Islamofascist terrorists which can be found verbatim in al Qaeda's manual which is available online at the Department of Justice website (Sullivan is apparently too lazy to look it up or is not interested).

Sullivan's real damage comes from the fact that the Left trots him out as a "Conservative" spokesman when he's nothing of the sort. He's an upscale version of David Brock.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
