I've been giving Mr. Sullivan a hard time over the last year or so. (Like he cares...) But he sure distills the left wing hypocrisy on the Gannon-Guckert "scandal":
The real scandal is the blatant use of homophobic rhetoric by the self-appointed Savonarolas of homo-left-wingery. It's an Animal Farm moment: the difference between a fanatic on the gay left and a fanatic on the religious right is harder and harder to discern. Just ask yourself: if a Catholic conservative blogger had found out that a liberal-leaning pseudo-pundit/reporter was a gay sex worker, had outed the guy as gay and a "hooker," published pictures of the guy naked, and demanded a response from a Democratic administration, do you think gay rights groups would be silent? They'd rightly be outraged. But the left can get away with anything, can't they? Especially homophobia.Hey, reactionaries - of either the left or right wing varieties - don't need a consistent and integrated world view. They're uh... reactionaries after all.
