The Scholars Of Miskatonic University Fall Silent

Andrew Sullivan savors the secrets…of the Necronomicon!

This is only the second time in its nearly ten-year history that the Dish has gone silent. The reason now is the same as the reason then. When dealing with a delusional fantasist like Sarah Palin, it takes time to absorb and make sense of the various competing narratives that she tells about her life. There are so many fabrications and delusions in the book, mixed in with facts, that just making sense of it – and comparing it with objective reality as we know it, and the subjective reality she has previously provided – is a bewildering task. She is a deeply disturbed person which makes this work of fiction and fact all the more challenging to read.


The key phrase there being “objective reality as we know it”; always a moving target with Andrew.

(Via Dan Riehl, who sees a Kurtzian metaphor in all this;  for more Lovecraftian fun, just click here.)

Update: Jim Treacher writes, “As we all pray for Andrew Sullivan’s safe return, a look back: Palin Dodges Tough Questions About Existence of ‘Alaska.'”
