“If I sound biased, that’s because I am. Biased toward the actual record, not the spin; biased toward a president who has conducted himself with grace and calm under incredible pressure, who has had to manage crises not seen since the Second World War and the Depression, and who as yet has not had a single significant scandal to his name.”
That’s the old hypocritical barebacker Andrew Sullivan his own self furiously fluffing Obama with a big old sloppy blowjob and taking the president’s critics on both the right and left to task in a piece this week in Newsweek.
Yes, it’s Photoshopped. I think we can all stipulate to that.
I particularly like the part where Sully, playing the role of the blind pig desperately snuffling around for that one fucking acorn to stumble across, pronounces Obama to be scandal free, and in so doing demonstrates not only that he’s a blind pig, but a pig who’s willing to surrender any sense of morality in order to pay his obeisance to the latest pol he’s decided to fellate.
I guess to Sully indefinite detention, secret kill lists with American citizen’s names on them, warrantless spying, a war on whistleblowers, violating the War Powers Resolution, and the abuse of the state secrets privilege and the suspension of habeus corpus don’t fit what constitutes a scandal to him.
But if those things don’t, then what the fuck does an asshole like Sully consider to be a scandal, I’d like to know?
But then, I really shouldn’t be surprised at any of this since he’s Andrew Sullivan and he’s still an asshole.
