"Losing Andrew Sullivan"

Greg Pollowitz writes that Obama’s gaffes, flip-flops, and triangulations have convinced the all-knowing final arbiter of all-things conservative that “Santa Claus does not exist.”

Of course, Sullivan concluded his brief but very public fling with conservatism back in 2004, when he endorsed a senator who, by the way, served in the Navy during Vietnam as “the right man – and the conservative choice – for a difficult and perilous time.”

Hmmm: Senator, Navy man, Vietnam vet. If only Sullivan could find such a candidate running for the White House in 2008!
