Ha Ha Ha: Michael Goldfarb Pwns Andrew Sullivan

Sullivan keeps writing Goldfarb demanding he provide proof Trig is Sarah Palin's son.

So Michael Goldfarb sent the emails to Howard Kurtz, who reprinted Sullivan's insanity for the world to see. Here are two of Sullivan's emails:

"I'm very sorry to say, it's come to this: can you confirm on the record that Trig Palin is Sarah Palin's biological son? . . . Since this is a crazy idea, it should be easy for you or someone to let me know, the most popular one-man political blog site in the world, what the truth is."

...

""I asked a simple question akin to asking whether you can confirm that the sky is blue. Here's the question in case it got lost: can you confirm on the record that Trig Palin is Sarah Palin's biological son? Can I please get a response of some sort, even if it is that you will not respond?"

Ha ha ha ha ha.

Sullivan titles his typically po-me post "The Crime of Committing Journalism."

Journalism. Since when were you ever a journalist, Sullivan? This has got to be the first story you've ever actually bothered to "pursue," in your own fashion.

By the way, Sullivan, Howie Kurtz is "committing the crime of journalism," too, by revealing your insanity to the world. That, my deranged idiot, is far more newsworthy a story than "proof" that Trig is Sarah Palin's biological son.

Insanity. Here's the Daily Dementia:

The Crime of Committing Journalism

I should reiterate two critical things: I have never claimed that Trig Palin is not Sarah Palin's biological son.

Bullshit, you have insinuated it two dozen times. Furthermore, I have seen emails in which you make it quite plain what you believe.

In fact, I have gone to enormous lengths never to say that, going silent for two days to figure it out and decided to leave it alone. Why? Because I had no proof of anything, only questions.

You went silent because gay gossip site and antisemitic conspiracy newslettter The Atlantic told you stop with the Trig Trutherism, because you were embarrassing a once-reputable magazine. So you went into a snit-- a hissy-fit strike -- for two days.

Since then, I have raised legitimate policy questions about what is undisputed in the public record, but I have not made any statements of fact I do not know to be true. That's my job.

No, it's not. Is Chelsea Clinton actually Webb Hubbell's daughter? Rumors have swirled for years, and the resemblance is uncanny. But that doesn't mean that it's anyone's "job" to constantly flog this rumor.

But I also expected the McCain campaign to do their job and at some point to provide evidence or a public statement setting the record straight, which they could persumably very easily do.

Their job has nothing to do with reassuring paranoid schizophrenics.

So I waited three weeks, watched two interviews, scanned Nexis and Google for any confirmation of actual evidence, and then privately asked Goldfarb and two other people I know and like in the McCain campaign to confirm the evidentiary truth on the record. I did not raise this issue in public.

You've raised it in public over and over again, which is why gay gossip site and antisemetic conspiracy newsletter The Atlantic told you to stop.

I asked a question in private. But it has now been made public by Goldfarb and Kurtz, and since they are now in the public domain, here are the two emails I sent Goldfarb and he got Kurtz to reprint...

[emails already quoted above.]

You're lucky, Sullivan, they didn't print one of your ALL CAPS CONSPIRATORIAL LUNATIC EXCLAMATION POINT SCREED!!!! emails.

I got no response, so I let it drop.

No you didn't. You jump at any pretext to savage the Palin children and "raise questions" about her "bizarre" behavior.

Like everyone else, I have been trying to get some answers to some factual questions from the McCain campaign but they refuse to provide them.

No, you're asking insane questions no sane person asks. If Michael Goldfarb is gaslighting a lunatic for sport, well, maybe that's not nice, but I can hardly blame him for it.

But for the McCain campaign to go to these lengths, violating core confidentiality of private good-faith questions...

Did this cocksucker just accuse someone else of violating the standards of fair play and decency?

... is something that has never happened to me before in journalism. I am also amazed that a fellow journalist would publish such emails in full. But since this is now all in the open, you deserve to know what your blogger has been trying to do in private for three weeks: just get a factual answer to a factual question on the record.

They won't. They cannot take the time to confirm on the record that Trig is Sarah's biological son, but they will try to smear the person asking. What does that tell you?

It tells me you're 1) insane and 2) the laughingstock of the political world.

Re: Batman

Look, I don't know who you are, and I don't know if I'm being pranked, but I can assure you I am not Batman.

For one thing, I am a physically ordinary man. I'm slight and I'm fifty six years old. For another thing, I vote Labour in England. The politics are all wrong.

For a third thing, Batman does not exist.
