Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Andrew Sullivan’s blog is finished

Andrew Sullivan has announced (click down) that he will stop blogging. He is a busy and energetic fellow with much on his plate, and I don’t blame him for wanting to retire from blogging. I thank him for many good years, and regret that the last year or so was a decline. He went overboard with his gay agenda, with a pretty serious and, to my mind, uncalled for, anti-Bush screed, so I stopped reading him because I learned ever less and his elegant style was covered by anger. In the early years I would read him daily, and in the end--maybe--monthly. Too bad. He was, at his best, a great writer, and great writers are always worth reading even when you disagree with them. His essay on September 11, "Why did it have to be such a perfect morning?", is one the best things ever written on the attack. Read it here.
Godspeed.

I too thought that Andrew’s work became skewed with anger over the past year or so. I still kept up on a daily basis..even through the snoring deal.

I agree that everyone needs to read his best work. "Why did it have to be such a perfect morning".

Good Luck Andrew....

Andrew Sullivan was one of my first regular blog reads starting two or three years ago. He turned me on to this new medium and opened for me the door to many other great blogs reads, like No Left Turns and others. I too have a great deal of respect for Andrew and admire, to a certain extent, his thinking, but to parrot other sentiments here, his blog became gay agenda centric and as his faith in the war against terrorism diminished my faith in him diminished, as well. I wish him the best.
