I guess now Andrew Sullivan will never work as a presidential blogger.
I give Sullivan a hard time here because I think he's often wrong, gravely wrong. But when he's right, he's right, and very few but Sullivan have been so insistently, eloquently, firmly, decisively and uncompromisingly correct as he has been about torture.
I greatly and without reservation admire Andrew Sullivan for his stand against torture. That this issue has isolated him is terrifying evidence of how quickly and to such depths the moral standards of this, his adopted nation have fallen.
