NIGHT OF THE BLOGGING DEAD:

OK, so much of it is recycled or boring namedropping. But the salient point, which John Whiteside and P O’Neill (link added 2/15; sorry about that) note in their own inimitable ways, is that Sullivan seems just as determined to blog after his “Exit ... Stage Left” moment as before.

We were going to do some counting to show that he had actually posted more after his announcement than the week before, but now it seems beside the point.

At John’s site, Wholly Without Merit John of Onanism Today fame has the best comment. (Also see his nick for BoiFromTroy).

Yes, we were going to do this long post about what we were thinking of doing next, but it looks like the Blog Queen has already made up his mind, so we’ll just have to keep on his ass.

AT LEAST HIS SLOPPINESS AT THE KEYBOARD HASN’T TAKEN A “BREAK”:

Just what, exactly, is the “Second Vatian Council”?

NO NEED TO BE NICE ON THE WAY UP:

Sullivan continues to burn his former colleagues on the right by linking to Kos and Oliver Willis on the Maya Keyes story (which, incidentally, he ignored when it first broke many months ago, following the lead of the corporate media he purports to offer blogging as an antidote to).

Boi From Troy, a/k/a Sullivan minus three years, lets it rip.

AS OPPOSED TO ...:
hey, now I’m only blogging occasionally, I can try inebriated blogging
Some of us think this admission is rather overdue.

SHUT UP!:

He blogs about this.

He blogs about that.

He blogs about the places that he’s never been at.

He blogs on Tuesday.

He blogs on Wednesday.

He blogs on Thursday.

And this after he has the nerve to tell us he’s quit?

Well, we should have expected this from a guy whose relationship with the truth has long been rather strained.

But damn you, Sullivan, damn you to hell. From now on it’s personal.

THANKS, DUNC!:

Getting this big a day after Sullivan quits-not quits was nice ... good to see you kept reading all this time.

We’re actually enjoying the break. Tomorrow, we hope, we’ll talk some about our future plans, or rather the lack thereof (we did pay attention to the comments over at Eschaton, some of the suggestions are worth discussing).

Also, Jim Cappozola wins for the best (if oblique) response to Sullivan’s hiatus.

Bruce Garrett also weighs in.

NOT BLOGGING (BLOGGING):

Wholly Without Merit John does the honors on Sullivan’s “non-blogging”:
So, it’s good enough for Bush to pay lip service to fiscal responsibility, even when everyone knows it’s a crock? Miss Sullivan can’t help loving that no-account man of hers.
