More thoughts on Andrew Sullivan
From Julian, one of my housemates, in Pandagon's comments, regarding Andrew Sullivan's continued support for President Bush:

"My theory: Sullivan is a character voter, not an issues voter. As a result, he looks for people with a similar character to himself. Bush is dishonest, intellectually lazy, shallowly ideological, and snidely contemptuous of disagreement. As a result, Sullivan takes an immediate liking to his character."

Now, I'm not in complete agreement with this comment--I guess I'm rather charitable in character assessment--I think Sullivan, bless his heart, is suffering from a bad case of cognitive dissonance. But it's an interesting take.
