Andrew Sullivan's conservative soul

Blogger Andrew Sullivan talks to Howard about the media's treatment of the Republican presidential candidates and why there is very little about them that is conservative.

    How could any real journalist interview Andrew Sullivan and not ask him about his his three year obsession with Sarah Palin's pregnancy? Even 9/11 Truthers and Obama Birthers have more facts than Sullivan's Uterus Obsession.

    Oh, I forgot. This was a 15 minute advertisement for The Beast / Newsweek. The old Kurtz would have had a fit about this.

    Not to mention not a whole lot of challenging questions about why this "conservative" blogger would be such a huge supporter of a far left liberal such as Barack Obama. Mr. Sullivan made some comment about Newt Gingrich not really being as smart as the media portrays him as. The same might be said about Barack Obama, the guy he supports. No real proof that Mr. Obama is as smart as the media tells us he is. He can read a good speech off of a teleprompter, but no indication that he is as truly smart as he (and the media) seem to think that he is.

    three points:

    1) This snooty little holier than-thou blogger is no conservative.

    2) Come on, Howard. Not one challenge to the fact that Mr. Snooty is also a Trig Truther? Not even one question? – FAIL –

    3) Remember the death of Bill Sparkman, that census worker in the South? Sullivan kept insisting that he had probably been murdered by some right-wing fringe group, maybe even a Tea Party supporter. Then the truth was revealed: Sparkman committed suicide. Sullivan responded by saying he never insisted that his death was a murder. Andrew Sullivan lied.

    What a completely wasted segment.
