On Cognitive Dissonance
Eschaton gives me the opportunity to not-too-randomly ask a question that's been on my mind for the past year:

Why the f*ck does Andrew Sullivan still support George W. Bush?

I'm not going to bother putting up links; y'all know the story: Sullivan's out, proud, and walking the beagle with his boyfriend in Provincetown; GWB wants to embed homophobia into the Constitution and calls Rick "man-on-dog" Santorum "inclusive". Sullivan keeps pleading for Bush to change his mind--and we all know, when it comes right down to it, that we'll see Utah turn Democrat before that happens. Yet for some bizarre reason (cognitive dissonance?) Sullivan keeps supporting Bush. Come on, Sullivan. Put your cognitive dissonance away, and be a man. Stop being Bush's beard already.
