SOUR GRAPES WATCH:
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.

WHY HE’S LOSING CONSERVATIVE READERS WHILE NOT GETTING ANY REPLACEMENT LIBERAL ONES:
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 andrewsullivan.com, 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.
