"You're a funny man, Sully ...

that's why I'm going to kill you last."

Inasmuch as it is rapidly becoming no longer surprising that Sullivan takes every opportunity he can to bash Powerline, it is still surprising that he is surprised that a blog called Powerline would be about anything but political power and how to keep it.

Ahem. Sorry we stepped out there for a while. As you may have noticed, our non-blog responsibilities here have cut into our blogging time (which we don’t mind; it’s not like we didn’t get our fill of that particular banana split back in ‘02-03 or so) but we apologize for the lag caused by the latest Bug That’s Going Around over the last week. A lot we could have said that’s just too stale now ... And some longer ideas we’ll keep warm for later.

Anyway, today we noticed a link from last Friday from The Malcontent, a self-described gay libertarian blogger who, even though he advertises at, is sick enough of him to start a “Sullivan Watch” of his own.

Some of his tropes will sound like familiar phenomena to SullyWatch readers:

He affects a tone of superiority on issues where he supposedly remains “conservative,” such as the budget deficit, but his spending priorities are, to me, as much a la carte as those of any congressman of either party.

His inability to find even a single redeeming feature in the current president is a function of either sheer ignorance of, or inattention to, reality. Regardless of his personal pique at George Bush or the FMA, a true “conservative” would never in a billion years endorse John Kerry. It just defies all logic and available evidence. He need not have endorsed at all, but he chose to do so, and I cannot possibly disagree with him more strongly on that.
