Andrew Sullivan says he's going to quit blogging: A Note to My Readers.
I don't have much to say about this, because to be honest I was not a fan of Mr. Sullivan and I haven't paid much attention to his writing for years. I didn't like his apologia for the absolutely horrible Ron and Rand Paul, his defense of the crypto-racist pseudo-scientific "The Bell Curve" and discredited eugenics theories, or his advocacy of conspiracy theories about Sarah Palin's pregnancy. I could list a lot more reasons, but I think I'll just leave it there -- with the note that I seriously doubt this is really the end of Sullivan's blogging.
Now get ready for a deluge of mainstream journalism think pieces about THE DEATH OF BLOGGING. As if.
