Andrew Sullivan, shark-jumper

The Monk was going to try to parse Andrew Sullivan's drivel in the Sunday Times about how John Kerry is the real choice for conservatives (stop laughing . . . I mean it, STOP laughing), and how Pres. Bush is actually a liberal. This is all based on Sullivan's narrow and tendentious definition of "conservative" and his deliberately misleading tagging of the president as a liberal (in actuality, the phrase "classic liberal" would be accurate).

But there's no point because blogress Melanie Phillips has dissected Sullivan's thesis, examined it, and thoroughly destroyed both its premises and conclusions. Therefore, The Monk defers to Ms. Phillips.
