    Sullivan is an idiot.

    •  And you've been dead wrong for years. (0+ / 0-)

      Dismissing someone as an idiot because you don't agree with them is foolish, narrow-minded and counterproductive, regardless of where on the political spectrum you stand.

      You counter positions you don't like with logic and reason, not with summary dismissal.  That's the way of the Tea Party.

        Tool?

        If I was a communist, rich men would fear me...And the opposite applies. The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.

        He is an idiot because he can hold TWO opposing thoughts in his head at the same time.  This is only the LATEST example in a long line of Sullivan's cognitive dissonance.

      He's a self important, bloviating blowhard.  He doesn't know shit about the budget, deficit or debt.

      He's falling into line line a good stenographer for the capitalist class and their political minions by pushing Social Security and Medicare benefit cuts.  Only someone willfully ignorant of Social Security's financial soundness and oblivious to the harm cuts would do could advocate such a policy.

      For some reason some people think he's an intellectual.  He's not.
