I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen
Andrew Sullivan is outraged that Al Franken would even raise questions about the sincerity of Bush's religiosity--as if noticing how Bush exploits God is a mortal sin. "Is there nothing" Sullivan asks, "the Bush-haters won't accuse him of?"
Give me a fucking break. When Sullivan was at the helm of The New Republic, the fair and balanced right was accusing Clinton of every crime under the sun--including exploiting religion. Clinton was accused of the mass murder of political enemies (as well as friends such as Vince Foster), drug running--you name it. The right's jihad against Clinton was a disgrace. What did Sullivan do as the editor of the most prestigious progressive magazine to address this? Very little.
