Aaaiii! Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Sullivan R’lyeh wagn’nagl fhtagn! Aaaiii!!!! Aaaaaaaaiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not one to pat Andy Sullivan on the head every time he says something reasonable. Sullivan's "greatest" contributions to the public discourse as writer and editor include mainstreaming racism, lying about Hillary Clinton's health plan, minimizing the tragedy of the AIDS epidemic, deciding the lesson of 9/11 was the need to follow in Joe McCarthy's footsteps, and, of course, helping lead us into the disastrous war Iraq.

But, still, I was struck by the fact that this post is probably more shrill than anything I've ever written.
