all this is window dressing
gay marriage is the only real reason he is endorsing Kerry, he even said Bush can't get his vote in the advocate because of it. It would be helpful if he was a more honest about it.
Yea,Andrew "You're a bigot if you disagree with me" Sullivan cares about one issue and one issue alone
I always said it, Gays and lesbians are a one issue voting block. They want the mainstream to adopt them and accept their lifestyle choices (gay marriage in particular) defacto making them a one issue voting constituency. O'Sullivan is no different. He may have been flirting with the right but in the end he needs to "get in line" No room for dissension in that constituency. Too bad. Being part of the mainstream is about breaking ranks with your constituency.
Sullivan could have saved a lot of (digital) ink by shortening it to "Blah blah blah blah blah. Bush is against gay marriage. Kerry is probably not. Therefore it's less risky to go with Kerry."
Bingo. He cares more about his pet issue than defending this country, IMHO.
