Steyn On Sullivan

Andrew Sullivan linked to the Mark Steyn interview on RWN with this quote,

“[Sullivan] will be the official voice of conservatism for decades,” – Mark Steyn, voicing his deeper fears.

It’s really sort of embarrassing that Andrew Sullivan, a man who actually wrote a book called, “The Conservative Soul,” which would sort of be like me writing a book called, “The Heart of Marxism,” has to do that sort of parsing to actually come up with a sentence that seems to show a real conservative saying something nice about him. Take a look at the part of the interview where we talk about Andrew,

Mark Steyn: I don’t want to get into the Andrew Sullivan, you know, “You must read this book,” says Andrew Sullivan of Andrew Sullivan’s fantastic new book. I don’t want to get into that kind of self endorsement, but I do think there is a lesson in this book for the Republican leadership on how to connect foreign policy and national security with domestic issues and if they’re looking around for ideas, as we certainly should be on this grim morning after, then I hope they do take a look at that.

John Hawkins: Well, as someone who read your book, I can wholeheartedly endorse it. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in a long time, must-read material.

Mark Steyn: Ok, that’s great, but then I hope you don’t have that to say about Andrew Sullivan….

John Hawkins: No? I don’t even read Andrew Sullivan’s stuff. I’m not into liberals pretending to be conservatives.

Mark Steyn: He’s got a little good act going there. He’s going to be put up on TV as the voice of conservatism for the next 30 years because the media is only interested in dissident conservatives. So he will be the official voice of conservatism for decades.

On the upside, if there are any readers who unknowingly went to Andrew’s website to find out what conservatives have to say and didn’t realize that he was actually a liberal pretending to be a conservative, just hang around here instead. Then you won’t be scratching your head trying to figure out why “conservatives” are so obsessed with gay marriage and bashing Christians.
