Cowards and bullies and monsters

Torture is the weapon of cowards and bullies and monsters. Cheney is all three. Prosecute him.
--Andrew Sullivan

Read why Andy says this here.

Paul, I wish that I loved Andy the way I once did, but he lost me during the run-up to the Iraq War and his support for Bush that lasted far too long after that debacle.

Then, too, his moaning and crying about how the Roman Catholic Church and the Republican Party didn't like him and other gay folks, even as he stuck with them, left a sour taste. I've forgiven him, but I can't get enthusiastic about his work, although he writes good pieces now.

The Times article on Robin Stephens is awesome. Once again, we're back to, "Does it work?" but the answer is obvious to anyone with a functioning brain.

Personally I don't care for Sullivan and I don't know how often I agree with him. Probably not that often. But once in a while he says something right on, and that is when I quote him.

Andy's book, Virtually Normal helped me along the path away from homophobia, and I'll always be grateful to him for that.
