Sully Wakes Up

Sullywatch notes that Sullivan now says this about Bennett:

But when, of course, was the last time Bill Bennett defended anyone’s privacy? Hasn’t he spent a career arguing that privacy should be foregone for the public good? Doesn’t he believe that all private activities are dependent for their morality and legality on their effects on society as a whole? (Radley Balko nails this point home.) Hasn’t Bennett even defended the public shaming and stigmatization of “sinners?” (He has certainly argued that gay people should be stigmatized, while promoting untruths about them to boot.)

Well, duhh Sully. That's why it was a valid story.
