Shock: Andrew Sullivan Endorses Kerry For President

Ahem. That's what's known in the blogging trade as an "ironic drudge siren."

The Shrill Shill actually writes:

The endorsement I once never thought I'd write.

Yeah, buddy, you were the last one to know. "I can't believe Andrew Sullivan just endorsed John Kerry!" screamed no one at all.

Meanwhile, George Bush makes a play for the "independent South Park Republican Schwarzenegger-McCain-Guiliani Eagle vote" by saying he doesn't necessarily oppose civil unions, just gay marriage, and disagrees with his party's platform on that score.

I'm mildly against civil unions, but not strongly against them. What I'm strongly against is the liberal courts overturning democracy in order to force them on a public they don't consider sufficiently enlightened to, you know, vote on major issues of the day.

But it looks like Bush's statement comes too late for Andrew "The FMA is my own personal Abu Ghraib" Sullivan. Wouldn't have appeased him anyway-- he wants full gay marriage imposed by liberal courts and he'll accept no substitute.

I have to say, though, that I find this late-game statement by Bush worrying. It's not necessarily a new position, but it is an announcement of a hitherto undeclared position. And I can't say I think such fourth-quarter adjustments are cause for optimism.

Update: Finally, a premise to hang a top ten on! Click here or else just scroll up.
