In 2003, when Andrew Sullivan still swore undying allegiance to George W. Bush and the economic analysis of Don Luskin, he devoted much of his time attacking Paul Krugman for criticizing George W. Bush. In 2003, Bob Somerby reported on it:
This is now a standard motif of the rube-running right. If you disagree with Bush, you’re a hater—or you have to be crazy. Last Friday, for example, Andrew Sullivan threw pleasing feed to the herd, referring to “the unhinged” Paul Krugman. . . . There’s no such thing as principled disagreement. Those who dispute you are simply unbalanced.
Paul Krugman: Turning victory into defeat. And I never did like Obama, anyway.
Blind adulation and lashing out at anyone who has substantive criticism for the policies of the pol you support is distasteful wherever it comes from. Disagree with Krugman's analysis? Then articulate that disagreement. DemfromCt chose instead to play the Sully "unhinged" game. He's better than that.
Speaking for me only
