:frown:

KK introduced me to his blog several years ago and he's my favorite. Amazing curation of news, opinion from conflicting views, wild furies of emotion followed by critiques of his fury and acknowledging when he was wrong.

Hope he can stay on as an advisor or something

that's too bad but i'm sure he'll do something else that's great and extremely under-appreciated by his fellow conservatives.

Andrew Sullivan is the guy who claimed that Trig Palin was actually Bristol Palin's baby and then blogged about it for about a month straight, right? Am I thinking of the right guy?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

Yes, he was calling for the release of Sarah Palin's medical records, DNA tests, etc.

yes, it was ridiculous and extremely stupid. He's posted plenty of good critiques of how stupid it was, which actually is a good example of why I like him. Few writers actually share opposing viewpoints or critiques of their own work and engage in a dialogue. Or admit when they're wrong, which he's also done plenty.

I mean, I've realized I hate every other news source and don't know what to do.

I would maybe get a subscription to the Economist?  I used to have one and hate read some of the stuff, but mostly liked it.  I also have been reading more books and newspapers.

I read books as much as I can, but Sullivan was pretty much my only current events source. Economist isn't a bad idea. I wonder if there's a good NYT RSS feed. I'll look.

God he sucks so bad now it makes me wonder if he was ever even that good.

I even tried to read him on Brexit talking about his buddy Boris and he manages to get this so wrong. Nation of Islam/Malcolm X were many things, but using them as an example of something that was the antonym of "conservative" is very weird if you know anything about them.

Quote
This radicalism gave the sense that the old Conservative Party was being replaced by a new populist right-wing movement — NUKIP, as Alex Massie drolly called it, (after the defunct anti-EU UK Independence Party, or UKIP). A leading and influential pro-Brexit blog, Guido Fawkes, reflected the new tone: “Brexit By Any Means Necessary” was the slogan, accompanied by a video of Malcolm X. When a Conservative Party cites Malcolm X as a role model, it seems safe to say it is no longer conservative in any serious meaning of the word.

Don't read the whole thing, I'm not going to bother to link it.
