Andrew Emotes

Today my, “Gee, I wish I’d said that” moment was provided by The Riehl World View:

If Andrew Sullivan wants to jump into the emoting bin at Wal-Mart to pick-out a cheap canned syrupy concoction on Iran to serve up to his readers, he's allowed; but it shouldn't be confused with the insight, or wisdom he colors it up to look to be. And it does matter for reasons that are critically important to America and her security.


I try to read Andrew Sullivan occasionally but must confess I never make it too far. He just seems so easily excitable, and not in a good way. There is something rabid Pomeranian about him that always leaves me queasy. Anyway, the entire post can be read here.

UPDATED: American Power also weighs in on Andrew:

Ayatollah Khomeini did not come to power with the promise of freedom. The revolution of '79 installed a Islamo-fascist dictatorship. Spencer Ackerman sees the Bush administration as a bigger threat to the Iranian regime than the mullahs in Tehran. And Andrew Sullivan, in citing him, is blogging too fast to realize how stupid he makes himself out to be. Once you deconstruct what Sullivan is saying, we see it's all about him and his Man-Crush Dream-Boy Obama.

Well, I guess a man has a right to his dreams no matter how ookey they might be. But to base one’s ideology on the hope that the object of your affection will cast an approving smile your way seems a bit over the top. Of course, we are talking about Andrew.
