Andrew Sullivan: Circus Character

Andrew Sullivan just can't get Sarah and Trig Palin out of his head. The vagina loathing Sullivan is begging Levi Johnston to write a book that proves up his obsession that Sarah Palin is not Trig's mother. Along the endless trail of uninformed, ignorant observations about this alleged fraud (which was conceived inside Sullivan's own skull) of Sarah Palin's pregnancy, the vagina loathing Sullivan offers up this bit of brilliance:

Palin, in contrast, called her own campaign prop "her retarded baby" in private, according to an eye-witness account from the father of her own grandson who lived in her house for months and knew her intimately. "I was just in shock the first time I heard it," Levi Johnston told CBS. Unlike Sarah Palin, Johnston has not been caught in multiple indisputable lies. I believe him over her. In fact, in any factual dispute, I believe anyone over her.

Notwithstanding that the vagina loathing Sullivan's source is a sold out, washed out teenager cashing in on the celebrity of the Palin family, consider the admission by Sullivan that he has agreed to the terms of the cult by admitting that "In fact, in any factual dispute, I believe anyone over her."

After having hit his head on the hard surface of the cult the vagina loathing Sullivan staggers on to this:

While I'm at it, does anyone actually believe that Palin's name for the child of miraculous provenance was found by her deep knowledge of ancient Norse as she claims in her magical-realism novel, "Going Rogue"? I mean, seriously. She knows about as much ancient Norse as she does English grammar. It's as credible as the idea that she gave a speech while having contractions, several hours after going into labor, as she claims in her novel. It's as credible as her amazing journey in labor with a special needs child on a plane where the flight attendants, according to the Anchorage Daily News, did not even notice she was pregnant. It's as credible as any number of indisputable self-serving, unbalanced lies that she has told in the public record for years.

Note the critical, elitist condescension about English grammar and the knowledge of "ancient Norse"? How does he know this? By this same disregard for facts I'm surprised the vagina loathing Sullivan didn't attribute the provenance of Bristol Palin's name to the famous NASCAR race (which is not true). Or did he? In any factual dispute I think I'll believe anyone over the vagina loathing, pot possessing, ticket fixing, almost illegal alien Sullivan.

But what of the claim that Sarah Palin could not possibly have delivered a speech while experiencing contractions? I'm certain that there are actual mothers that read this blog that may have some comments on that. But from a strictly vicarious viewpoint, as a father, I have seen a mother that has done much more than give a speech and get on a plane while she was having contractions, most notably when the mother's experience was the fifth or sixth pregnancy as was the case with Sarah Palin. This is where Sullivan ignores the limits of common sense and simply saws off the limb from which he screeches. He knows absolutely nothing of motherhood (or fatherhood) and even less about women, which is why he and Keith Olberman are finding it ever more difficult to find people who will listen to them unless they act like circus clowns.

I was under the impression ... (Below threshold)

I was under the impression that Sully's masters had FORBIDDEN him to write any more gibberish about Trig Palin. As for Levi Johnston being "shocked", isn't this the same guy who described himself as "a fucking redneck"? Yeah, Levi is a real source of 'unbiased' information.

You must be gay. There's no other explanation for your obsession w/ Sully's sexual preference.

Look, it's fine if you're gay. There's absolutely nothing wrong w/ it, you just have to admit it and get on with your life.

You are an idiot. Say "vagina loathing" a few more times. It may be the only coherent phrase in the whole piece. Gay does not equal uninformed, about women or anything else. And, if you can read, his point about the speech has nothing to do with whether it is or isn't possible to give a speech while having contractions. It's that a careful woman experiencing what she knows to be a risky birth WOULDN"T.

Sully is still all butthurt... (Below threshold)

Sully is still all butthurt that no one gives a rats ass what he writes or say's anymore. He went over the edge and is under the impression that his rantings should be "The Final Word" on everything Palin when in fact they are viewed by anyone with more than two functioning synapses as the ravings of an drug addled idiot.

Someone needs to tell him his 15 min were up a long time ago.

Holy sheet!!!!!
My home Jeopardy! winning streak is REALLY secure, now!

P.S. NON-rogue neocon Washington Times Radio is attempting to police conformity to the euphemism, "R-word" for "retarded".

Sully is just an absolute riot, isn't he?

As it so happens, I helped change a battery in my car while in labor with my last child so I'd have transportation to the hospital. I had my baby about 2 hours later. I'm prety sure a plane ride would have been a lot more comfortable.

No. He doesn't say it's impossible. He is basically saying he doesn't believe it.

"It's as credible as the idea that she gave a speech while having contractions, several hours after going into labor, as she claims in her novel."

Unless, of course, his preceding sentence is a claim that her knowledge of Norse history is vast. Somehow, I don't think that's the case.

When you're in a hole, stop digging.

I know it's a compulsion. I know it's difficult for you to do. Yes. She's pretty; she's successful; and she has more fame than you. But you have to let it go. I know; I know. Just step away from the keyboard. That's it. Very good. Now breath. That's it. Breath. Nice and slow.

The first step toward recovery is to admit that you are powerless over your compulsion and that your life has become unmanageable.

I used to read your blog every day, but that was before you lost your mind.

As with Kevino, I too used to read Sully's blog but he lost it some time ago.

I'm not sure what it is but Palin absolutely owns him. This is beyond obsession; Sully needs an intervention.

If he continues to go off the deep end, he'll more than likely be considered as a replacement for Olbermann.

To quote Rosy, "Google it". The OFTEN SHORTENED 'Tri-g medical term' is non-existant.

I can't argue medical jargon. Out of my sphere of interest or concern, knock wood.

However, by remembering the name of Palin's youngest son, one is mnemonically reminded of his disease, since Trig is a fine contraction of Trisomy-G.

I will grant Ms. Palin the benefit of being an idiot, however.

Perhaps Sarah Palin's knowlege of Norse Mythology isn't as vast as someone else's is who is close to her and offered the name Trig to her.
If Sullivan would take a valium and sit back and relax, he might see that
he has become such a clown that he is no longer relevant.
I used to read him everyday until Ms Palin came along and as for believing anything Levi Johnson says...well just consider the source.
My Mother was an OB/GYN nurse and she can tell you all sorts of stories
about what women have done while in hard labor including one woman that played solitaire on her belly until the baby was actually crowning before calling for help.

All the otherwise valid points you make get lost because of your idiotic, repeated reference to the "vagina loathing" Sullivan.

If Cindy Sheehan were a conservative, that's the sort of thing she'd say. Grow up.
