There is No Reason to Take Andrew Sullivan Seriously

To wit.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that there should be no pushback against Sullivan’s blog posts and articles. Quite the contrary; for whatever reason, Sullivan is able to command a large number of readers, which means that he is influential, and which further means that his influence needs to be combated when Sullivan is in the wrong–as he often is. But there are far too many people who believe that Sullivan is a significant thinker regarding the issues of the day. When one examines many of his writings, one finds that he is anything but.

    I love it that he trusts the CBO predictions that Obamacare will save money in the long run. Anybody remember what happened to the original CBO estimates for the 2010 and 2011 deficits? I’d trust astrologers before trusting those guys.

    It just boggles the mind that a lot of people think they can add new layers of administration to an industry and save money as a result. We need an army of Ed Demings in politics.
