Cry me a fucking river.

Andrew Sullivan declares himself an "independent". Whassamatter Andy? You were Republican while this administration was using deception to pursue an (admittedly) illegal war, trashing 50 years of international co-operation and enriching its friends along the way.
You looked the other way while that same adminstration gave itself uprecedented new powers and trampled on civil liberties, ditched treaties and embarassed this country time and again cynically using patriotism and the memory of 9/11 to acheive its aims.
But now that they've finally stopped screwing other people and decided (not surprisingly) to trample your garden, now you wanna leave?
This isn't the scales falling from Saul's eyes. Oh no. I suspect you'll still be carrying water for the cause, but now you can look down your nose at your former allies. You may have heard of a document called the Constitution?! You know, "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?" See, some of us believe in justice for all...not when it's convenient, or morally or politically expedient.

You poor, sad, fuck...You're just a rat jumping ship.
Arianna's got more balls than you.
