Sully: It's Hillary's Fault
[. . . P]ublishing lies as a way of sucking up to Marty Peretz makes Sullivan look worse rather than better. Whether he has a place in American political discussion really depends on the depth of his repentance. And it ain't too deep. - Brad DeLong
Again, I take responsibility. [. . .] But look: it was one piece in a magazine. It's being treated as if it were a turning point in history. Please. There's one reason the Clinton healthcare bill failed and it isn't Betsy McCaughey. It's Hillary Clinton.
Why Andrew Sullivan fails is the issue here, not health care reform in 1994 (Matt Cooper addresses that one.) BTW, Sully still has no apologies for "The Bell Curve" and "The Fifth Column." Maybe those were Hillary's fault too. BTW, Brad DeLong is old enough to remember that in 2007, Sully was defending his McCaughey Moment.
Speaking for me only
