Andrew Sullivan Continues Peddling Trig Trutherism

I've written to him twice asking for comment (something he himself doesn't bother with when he launches his own smears and Bircheresque conspiracy theories).

He has not responded.

Here then are emails that a long-time reader (whom I have no reason to doubt, particularly, except for general skepticism and a desire for fairness) to Sullivan, and his replies.

As he has not bothered to deny they're his, I assume they are. I have reversed the order of query and reply (they're backwards in the format sent to me) for ease of reading, and put Sullivan's responses in bold.

First:

Okay... well, I guess that was Sunday, when Sullivan was finally discovering that a 100 pound woman who is photographed suddenly weightng 150 pounds might just be pregnant and not simply overdosing on Haagen-Dasz, so maybe it was taking him a little while to wrap his head around the nuances of the whole human reproductive cycle thing he's heard so much about.

He doesn't really understand the finer details of those creatures that some of his radical friends call "breeders" in their more heterophobic moments, so I guess I can understand his bafflement at all these strange new facts.

But how about today?

Today, after dozens of pregnancy pictures have been produced.

Today, after journalists working in the Juneau capitol have said, flatly, "Of course she was pregnant, you idiots; why didn't anyone just call us? We could have told you she was heavy with child for two months."

Today, after it is known that Bristol is now pregnant and has been for months, making it almost medically impossible that Bristol could have carried a child to term just months before becoming pregnant "again."

Today -- he's still pushing Trig Trutherism:

but is it her baby????

I don't know if Andrew Sullivan is technically "evil." I am not sure he still has the legal capacity for mens rea, the guilty thought.

I am now fairly certain he is simply insane. His brain has degenerated for some reason or another. He is simply no longer capable of rational thought.

It's actually quite sad. His passage into a frightening twilight of gibbering insanity is one I wouldn't wish on any enemy.

Except him, of course. But I think that's understood.
