Andrew Sullivan Antisemite
I will save many of you the arduous and sometimes very interesting task of reading through Leon Wieseltier's long piece on Andrew Sullivan. The bottom line is that Wieseltier has branded Sullivan rather correctly as an Antisemite, referring to him as the "Pat Buchanan of the Left". My one problem with Wieseltier's piece is that you still have to suffer through his assumptions that we behaved like barbarians in Gaza - never has an army fought in a more moral fashion than this one, and Wieseltier just can't get over himself on this one. For those whose memories are short, this particular screed of his was perhaps his Sullivan-like paean to the altar of the god of Liberalism.
