Andrew Sullivan famously spent the length of a book openly wondering about what had, or had not, sprung from the fecund loins of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Because of the investigative journalism that was in it.
But now that Breitbart has offered a reward for the contents of the journolist listserve?
I needn’t be lectured by a so-called “conservative” who has aided and abetted in this perversion of the American political experiment. Sullivan’s disgusting, ends-justify-the-means obsession with the personal family life of Sarah Palin breached every ethical and journalistic boundary known to the cosmos. Between airing Palin’s hacked private emails and making a cottage industry out of challenging the maternity of her son, Trig, sometimes the word “irony” or “hypocrisy” is not descriptive enough.
To highlight the absurdity of Sullivan’s outrage, perhaps his submission entitled “The Palin Emails” can grant you insight into a demented mind. Before divulging them in at least five separate posts, he wrote: ”They’ve leaked, of course. And they’re not pretty.”
And they weren’t meant to be public either, Andy.
Admittedly, a selective outrage.
Lot of that going around.
