Sullivan

Andrew Sullivan stands up and acts like a real conservative:

WAR IS DECLARED: The president launched a war today against the civil rights of gay citizens and their families. And just as importantly, he launched a war to defile the most sacred document in the land.
...This struggle is hard but it is also easy. The president has made it easy. He's a simple man and he divides the world into friends and foes. He has now made a whole group of Americans - and their families and their friends - his enemy. We have no alternative but to defend ourselves and our families from this attack. And we will.

This is something I've been wondering for the last few months. It seems there's a decent chance that good sense and justice may prevail once more in the US, and when it has done so, we will all look back once again and point to some defining moment. "That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain," in 1863. "At long last, sir, have you no sense of decency? Have you no shame?", in 1954.

Perhaps, this time, it'll be written in a weblog.
