THE “OBAMA STRADDLE” — a brilliant success! “Sullivan, after writing for years about the lawlessness of the Bush administration, accepts the Obama military commissions largely because of a change in style. Let me repeat: There’s very little substantive difference here between what Bush did and what Obama is doing.” Yeah, but although Obama says he opposes gay marriage, it’s obvious that he’s lying about that — so everything else he does is basically okay! At least in Sullivanland, which has been increasingly divorced from reality since . . . Bush came out against gay marriage.

Said the straight man, to the late man: Where have you been?

UPDATE: Yes, back-to-back King Crimson references. Full lyrics here. Though I was actually listening to the Kirsty Hawkshaw / Opus III version.
