Default Wieseltier Takes Down Andrew Sullivan

Damn, this feels good. Here, in the parlance of Mr. Sullivan, is the "money quote:"

Sullivan's outrage at my failure of transcription disguises a problem. It is that he is a hero-worshipper, but all his heroes do not go together. He reveres Reagan and he reveres Obama. That is to say, he admires conceptions of government that contradict each other.

No, no, no, Leon, don't you see? Andrew is a true conservative! If he believes it, it is automatically the conservative position!

To Andrew's liberal admirers, I suggest you go back to the Daily Dish archives from 2001/2003/2004. His thuggish hawkishness from the time was breathtaking. Don't forget he accused us of planning to mount a fifth column!

Why anyone respects this clown is beyond me. I cannot believe a magazine as serious as the Atlantic hosts his blog. Or perhaps the "face of the day" is just too stimulating to pass up?
