Andrew Sullivan, 11:57am. The secular religion of multiculturalism has the same tropes as a real religion. It constructs an abstract devil and posits one completely virtuous state of being. There can be no compromise between them.
Andrew Sullivan, 50 minutes later. Posts approvingly a long email from a reader about how conservative book titles are beyond parody. Exhibit A: Ann Coulter's new book, Godless. Subtitle: The Church of Liberalism.
I know, I should stop; this is too easy. But as the authentic voice of sweet reason, it bugs me that Sullivan, who claims that title himself, can't keep it straight for even one hour.
Or is this what they mean by the radical center: somebody who, instead of levying hysterical charges against the guys on the other side, levies hysterical charges at both sides?
