Anyone noticed that issues that affect him directly are of supreme importance (HIV ban, Green Card issues for same sex parners), but if they're Other Peoples' Problems, then it's "just too bad" (same sex couples in non-marriage states, those without health insurance)?
Yes, he's a typical conservative in that regard.
Did he turn you down for the Intern job, OP? Better luck next time.
R2= new intern. Slurp.
That's like asking if anybody noticed Andrew gazing at his navel (which has conveniently popped out like one of those turkey cooking indicators) and then writes about it because his life and his problems are sooooooooo universal.
Typical rich bougie white middle aged gay man.
It's all about me, and none for you. And bring me a new houseboy, the old one displeases me. ((clap clap))
Smart people try not to notice this sociopath at all costs, but DL groupies must must MUST post a thread about his every mental fart.
His loads were not milky, by the way. There were congealed and resembled oxidized lemon curd. Would that they would have smelled like lemon curd.
Sullivan is not a sociopath. It's so tiresome when that word is misused.
He does care about health care and other issues.
The Sullivan hater here needs a good therapist.
Amen R10 our troll must have seen Sullivan getting TV air time because of the rulings and it pissed him off.
What exactly did he say about gay couples in non-marriage states?
I mentioned health care as for the longest time he was vehemently anti-single-payer, while he had great benefits himself. I give him credit for recently opining that single payer may be the only viable options to contain costs.
How has David "Dominique Devereaux" Ehrenstein not surfaced in this thread yet?
I actually heard an interview with him on NPR. He was talking about his new book where he interviewed and studied the different "tribes" created by different types of people- the deaf, midgets, parents of kids with down syndrome, etc. He sounded very compassionate and interested in other people's problems.
I was surprised because I'd only heard negative things about AS here.
In his glow of the decision, when asked about the non-marriage state folks' situation, he expressed no real empathy for their frustration, but sounded almost Republican with something like "it's a state matter now (I've got mine in NY and MA!) ..."
He's occasionally readable, but totally repellant.
How is his pay wall column doing?
R15. you're thinking of Andrew Solomon.
This thread SHOULD have been titled - "I STILL want Andrew Sullivan DEAD" - we get it troll. Why not have the maximum amount of fun by devising 101 delightful ways to torture him.
Actually, I agree with Sully on some things, but find him annoying in his elitism, which is why I posted this thread. I'm not the troll you think I am.
You girls let strangers have far too much influence on your life. Be your own person and lead by example.
Actually, r7, it is my observation that only the young come in chunks.
The title of your thread gives you away, OP. You are indeed the troll we think you are.
[quote]I'm not the troll you think I am.
You knew that "Milky Loads" would attract Sully haters. Don't expect us to fall for your "not the troll" bullcrap, Troll.
Mobility scooter detectives will always expose you OP. (ignore them)
I never heard of "Milky Loads" until I opened this thread.
The Most Influential Public Intellectual Of The Past 25 Years?
Doesn’t Andrew Sullivan have a reasonably strong claim to that title, especially after the recent Supreme Court decisions on gay marriage? Sullivan was the dominant intellectual influence on this issue, from the late 1980s on, and that is from a time where other major civil liberties figures didn’t give gay marriage much of a second thought, one way or the other, or they wished to run away from the issue.

I stopped reading his blog, which I'd read for years, after Maggie Thatcher kicked the bucket. Although I'm very liberal, Sullivan's conservative views didn't usually bother me too much as he wasn't conservative about everything and I enjoyed the broad nature of the subjects he covered. I had even signed up as a paying subscriber to his new blog.
That changed with his paeans to dead Maggie and related frequent digs at the liberals who abhorred that destructive cunt and didn't pretend to mourn her. It turned me off so much I became a former reader.
I wish I had accomplished as much as he has at this point in my life. Sullivan has a unique perspective that conservatives, catholics and evangelicals can learn from if they are willing to listen. It's really that audience he is most effective with. There are some gay people that hate him for some reason, but that really doesn't have any effect on him reaching these groups. He has been bravely advocating gay marriage in the media for a very long time. We owe him for that.
He's a disgusting human being. His people are posting here, trying to puff him up.
I posted just before you R31. I have never met Sullivan, I don't know him and have only seen him on TV and on the web. I really don't have a dog in this hunt, I just think we should be fair. You can hate him all you want, it's your right. I think hate is a very negative emotion and reflects on a person's soul.
Lame, R32. Andrew needs to pay you better. If he did, you might use your brain more.
R31 - R34 also thinks every mention of McDonald's, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, and Wendy's is done by a paid shill.
(Oops! I just posted four more names that will help pay my rent this month.)
Sullivan's people are all over this thread. In the past, we very rarely had anyone defend him, much less with stupid attempts like R32. The Log Cabinites are definitely congregating here today.
I used the header "Milky Loads" as that seems to be a nickname for him here. Moreover, at the time he was seeking those out, he was apparently quite adamant on FIT GUYS ONLY, so now that he's an old goat, his pickiness comes back to haunt him.
[quote]I used the header "Milky Loads" as that seems to be a nickname for him here.
While your nickname seems to be "Troll" so that puts you on an equal scale. Your denial of being a troll falls apart in view of your post at R37.
He's a darling, he's a demon, he's a lamb.
What does he think of Anthony Altimore's guide to P-town?
R40 -- M. L. has said he's growing tired of PTown, not sure how much longer he'll be going there ...
The moron at R36 ran off to another thread to announce that I'm "a Republican defending Andrew Sullivan in other threads." The fool thinks that pointing out that OP is a troll is defending Sullivan. R 36 obviously a product of the dumbed-down education system in the U.S. and failed reading comprehension every year since 4th grade.
"R36 obviously a product of the dumbed-down..."
Hilarious, dear. You can't even string a sentence together.
Obvious anger management issues for you, R42.
Any updates on how things are going with his hubby's career, his adjustment to life in NYC, that kind of thing?
I wonder when that idiot is going to grow a brain re: WTC
[quote]Anyone noticed that issues that affect him directly are of supreme importance
I noticed the same thing about Nate Berkus. He's always writing about furniture, colors, and interior design. And don't get me started about Martha Stewart always going on about food, and party decorations. Why do people do that?
And have you seen how he signs his articles with his name? I think I remember a cartoon illustration for him as well. He is so self obsessed. It's unbearable. He has a messiah complex and is always trying to change things - where do you get off, boy!
