I Think The Word You're Looking For Is: Hypocrite

Good grief! Okay Sully, what gives? While you were on vacation one of your guest bloggers called for the torture of Zaccharias Moussaoui. Specifically that he should be "torn apart by ferrets, or thrown into a cell with a large, surly redneck with a scorching case of xenophobia who would help him learn pain and terror firsthand."

Now if I say that sounds like damn cool idea - that's called consistency. But if you, Andrew, say that the guest blogger is "sharp as nails" and a "decent, lovely" person, well that just smacks of flip-flopping at best and outright hypocrisy at worst.

As Josh at The Conjecturer puts it:
So why is torture not okay when the government talks about it? I mean, can Rummy be a “decent, lovely person” despite his background with prisoner abuse (all of which is kinder than what Sully’s guest suggested)?
I agree with Josh's take on the current state of Sully's blog: "His site has descended into a gigantic act of masturbation, and I’m shocked disappointed Time would fund such trash."

I remember how excited I was when I found "The Daily Dish" for the first time. Sullivan spoke to me, and sometimes for me. Unfortunately his blog has become nothing more than an electronic ego trip for a big ol' attention whore.

He was a big help to me when I was coming out as a gay righty. His descent into hysterical moralism has been very sad. I miss him. (And he pisses me off).

sad but true. i enjoyed the hell out of reading him as i was taking my political journey towards 'the right' or 'conservatism' or whatever the hell ya wanna call it.. but these days i find him increasingly annoying.. and i can't take any more of his how many gay angels should be allowed to dance on the pinky of the pope while andy tries to steal a kiss of his ring bullshit... blech !
