Sullivan Agonistes

Jennifer Rubin delivers a well-deserved spanking to the Sarah-Palin-fixated Beagle Blogger for his latest “slobbery” foray into female-physiognomy-land:
Andrew Sullivan, for one — who gained much notoriety for his gynecological scavenger hunt during the campaign — has left off where he began with what should be, but no longer is, shockingly offensive droolery about the former governor and Republican vice presidential nominee. . . . Clearly he is a man obsessed with Palin and her physique and who cannot resist the urge to degrade and reduce her to a sexual object.
A sexual object Mrs. Palin indubitably is to Mr. Sullivan, and has been from the beginning—an agonist to his antagonism: “Do not,” says he, “under-estimate the appeal of a beautiful, big breasted, divinely chosen warrior-mother as a military leader in a global religious war”; and how can we, when he won’t let us forget it? She might as well be Judy Garland or Joan Crawford, for all the time he spends (un)worshiping her.

  1. Ms Abrams, welcome abroad. A ship sounds better than a blogging hell but none the less good posting.
    If i disagree with you i promise too refer to your thinking and not your sex.
    With all the recent advances in science and possible visits by UFOs in our past, it's possible to have a total of 47 different sexes. So that would be to con fussing and time consuming. Why do 'people' even bother?

    I almost always read your work on the Middle East and hope to see more of it.
    quite googleable
