Calm down, man, you’ll burst a vessel

Why read Andrew Sullivan? Well, as the most-principled conservative in the world – a job he got by traducing or disavowing most conservative principles, which made him a Honest Voice to the left – he provides lessons for us all. But there’s another reason. Love this quote:

You realize after a while that they have no principles but the maintenance of their own power and the destruction of their perceived enemies. War for ever indeed – within American and outside it. At any cost. Whatever it takes.

The stern man-on-the-ramparts denunciation of infinite perfidy: pure Sullivan. Who’s the “they”? Neocons! Hsssss! What’s it about? It doesn’t really matter, but in this case it’s the controversy over an Iranian lobbying group. His point gets run through the industrial shredder over at the Weekly Standard; fun times.

No, the quote above is the reason you should read him. Some day he’s going to use the exact same phrase to describe the decision of McDonald’s to reduce the availability window of the Shamrock Shake by two days, or something equally innocuous, and I want to be there.
