Andrew Sullivan Watch

Might as well slap this buffoon up before I turn in:

Here's [link omitted] an over-wrought attack on yours truly as the Judas of Bush-supporters. Please. Oh, and I'm also "Zarqawi's microphone." Actually, I'm even more important that that: "I suspect Andrew Sullivan has done more damage to the president, and more help to Kerry, than George Soros and MoveOn with all their billions." My power, it frightens me.

If someone attributed such power to me, would I link it? You betcha. But I'd be perfectly transparent about my reasons for doing so (i.e., ego stroke-- I can't believe this guy thinks I matter!)

Sullivan is posting a nobody making dopey statements primarily so he can call attention to this ninny's idea that little Andrew Sullivan is more important that George Soros' billions.

Jackass.

It's a jackass statement. And it's even more jackass for Sullivan to print it, even why saying "Moi? Important?"

A simpler explanation is that I'm a blogger who tries to call things as I see them. When facts change, I try and adjust.

The main fact that's changed is.... oh, for crying out loud, everyone knows what we're talking about here.

I never believed the Iraq liberation would be this botched; and it behooves those of us who supported it to be accountable. (God knows, the Bush administration won't take responsibility.) I've learned in life that error is not something to be afraid of. But fear of admitting error is.

And yet Sullivan then goes on to call Bush to account for Sullivan's errors. As I've pointed out before, Sullivan continues to insist he was right all along on Iraq while simultaneously claiming that it's all going wrong now-- he personally NEVER has confessed to any error as regards the war. Not that he thought the pacification would be easier, or that Iraqis would be more helpful in making their own peaceful futures, etc.

He's quite ready to confess the errors of others, especially those who oppose gay marriage (though I'm quite sure that's coincidental). But confess his own errors? Not so much.

Tell ya what, Andy-- I'll get on Bush to admit his errors the moment you confess yours.

Since you're so big on "adjusting" as facts change and such a big believer in admitting error.

Let's face it-- since you're now apparently more influential than George Soros' billions, your leadership-by-example would be most salutory for our political dialogue.

Update:

Ace, I believe that you are the single most powerful blogger in the history of blogging.

No, that's just ridiculous. Stop it.

More Powerful than Instapundit.

Now come on! This is just getting silly.

The trendsetter for the Corner.

Really? Moi? Do you really think...?

Quicker on the breaking news than Drudge.

This is just too ridiculous. I'm going to let you just make a couple of absurd compliments, and then that's it for you, buddy.

Sexier than Wonkette's faux lesbo pics.

(Batting eyes.)

Gayer than Andrew Sullivan (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Hey!

"Phat-ter" than Filet O Fish (but not fatter, since no one is). That pretty much says it all. -- Senator Philabuster, with the Comment of the Day

It doesn't QUITE say it all though! Because Jake has an interesting follow up:

Ace is more important in this election than President Bush.

No, please don't (yes yes) stop! I'm not worthy! (Am I? Tell me I am.)

Okay. Now, no more of this silly nonsense!
