"Since the Dish has tried to be rigorous and careful in analyzing Palin's unhinged grip on reality from the very beginning..."

"... specifically her fantastic story of her fifth pregnancy — we feel it's vital that we grapple with this new data as fairly and as rigorously as possible. That takes time to get right. And it is so complicated we simply cannot focus on anything else."

Andrew Sullivan curls up with a book. He's "gone silent," he says.
There is a possibility here of such a huge scandal that we would be crazy not to take our time either to debunk it or move it forward for further examination.
Huh? What's up? What "new data"? Just the book itself? The book is pablum. How long can it take to digest?

ADDED: This is pure speculation, but I wonder if Palin has threatened to sue Sullivan for defamation.

Too bad Drudge isn't a lib, the headline is so ripe.

Palin Pablum.

John said...

Sullivan is a disgusting perver Ann. You should stop linking to him. Doing so is explotive of whatever mental illness he is suffering. And it is also really gross of you as a woman. You may be jealous of Palin because she is better looking and more successful than you. You may dislike her views. You may think she is an idiot. But no woman deserves to be subjected to the crap that Sullivan puts out about Palin.

If Palin were my wife or my sister, I would have long since beaten that pervert to within an inch of his life. He is just a disgusting human being. You should be above linking to him.

Mark said...

The un-ironic self-negation of that quote pretty much sums up Sullivan since he lost his man crush on Bush.

Fred4Pres said...

I am pretty sure Sullivan's review of Sarah Palin will involve attempted spatchcocking.

Alex said...

Scandal? I think the HIV has gone to Sullivan's brain. He's sounding extremely paranoid and delusional. He's lost all grip on reality. At worst Sarah Palin decides not to bother running in 2012, but run for the Alaskan Senate seat in 2014. Big fucking deal.

Shanna said...

specifically her fantastic story of her fifth pregnancy

OMFG. Who is unhinged here?

Bissage said...

Perhaps it would be helpful to note that Mr. Sullivan is “doing the best [he] can with what [he] has to work with.”

So it goes.

Bissage said...

Hey! This is fun!!!

So it goes.

Lincolntf said...

Sully's breathless statement about how vital it is for him to get his review of this book "right", at the same time that he's presciently declaring it fraudulent and flawed, is a chuckle.

Sullivan, dude, you must put down that bong BEFORE you post, not after.

Yes, and people who can't spell "pabulum" can lecture us about what a dunce Sarah Palin is.

traditionalguy said...

Sullivan lives in his own creative world of alternate "Facts" and is not worth the time reading him takes. In fact he resembles Major Hasan's sticking to an alternate reality in a way because all he says is based upon a wrong belief that he cannot ever let go of, but which makes him lash out at others who are not in agreement with him. it is a mental condition based upon a wilfull refusal of belief in the truth, which makes them both psychotics.

Alex said...

Sullivan is the "Baghdad Bob" of the blogsphere. Good for being the butt of jokes and what not.

Fred4Pres said...

Well the good part is Sullivan will be very objective and fair in his review.

Well at least that other Andrew Sullivan in some other parallel universe. Our Andrew Sullivan...well I would not expect that.

Synova said...

To be fair... pablum or pabulum is sort of what the book was billed as (even if no one would use that word except to be critical.)

It was presented as a biography and review of the campaign.

It wasn't presented as a shocking tell-all of personal secrets nor as a dense policy tome.

John said...

"Yes, and people who can't spell "pabulum" can lecture us about what a dunce Sarah Palin is."

Ann can. She is smart. She went to Yale and voted for Obama.

Dark Eden said...

You have to understand conspiracy theorists. I grew up in a family that were 100% believers in the whole UFO conspiracies and they could go on for hours at a video of some fuzzy lights.

It won't be what the book says but what it doesn't say. What it hints at. If you combine what she said on page 243 with the anecdote on p 97 and hit yourself in the head with a hammer for a day or two, you will clearly see Palin is admitting to being a Reptilian alien!

Pablum is the trademarked brand name for a cereal product. Pabulum is a Latin word.

Scott said...

I am hoping that further discussion in the comments will refrain from name-calling about Sullivan's sexual orientation or attributing his morbid fascination with Palin to his HIV status. AIDS-related dementia is a lot less common than it used to be, and you can't possibly know enough about the intimate details of his health to assert that he suffers from it.

After all, presumably straight people not suffering from AIDS go off the deep end too. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.

He doesn't allow blog comments, so I'll take the liberty of posting my email to him, in response to his post titled "The Odd Lies Of Sarah Palin: A Summary Before The Next Round":

If any post begged for a fisking, it's that one.

But it won't happen for three reasons:

1. Screaming "Liar!" at a politician is like screaming "Filthy!" at a garbage truck. You were expecting something different? And who wants to waste time responding to the howlings of people with unusual obsessions over pedestrian phenomena?

2. Your obsession with Sarah Palin smells a lot like the odor coming from the 9/11 truthers. Their "facts" have the same stench as your "facts"; their earnest ardour for the "truth" matches yours. And arguing with crazy people gets boring really quickly.

3. Your blog is still popular, but you continue to waste your capital as an opinion leader on your morbid obsession with Sarah Palin, among other things. You have apparently lost your ability to pick the fights that matter, which only serves to build you a reputation as an intellectual flyweight. It would be unusual to see any major blogger respond to your strange Palin family posts, other than to note their strangeness.

It was probably a waste of time to write this. Have a nice life.

traditionalguy said...

John...It would be helpful to you to distinguish between #1) a criticism that can be a help, and #2) a false fact based attack designed to hurt a reputation. The Professor has done #1 once about Palin. But you have repeatedly done #2 about her as a retaliation. Get with the big tent theory and see reachable friends everywhere. Sarah can handle her enemies, if you don't go making more of them for her.

I doubt I am going reach Ann. Further, Sullivan is a disgusting pervert and not because he is gay. His posts on Palin are both deranged and profoundly misogynistic. If Althouse wants to link to Sullivan, I am going to call her out for linking to a misogynistic pervert who spends his time trying to read the medical records of strange women.

Patrick said...

Is it actually possible for a 'grip on reality' to be unhinged? Isn't 'unhinged' idiom for someone who has lost their grip on reality?

John said...

Further traditional guy, Ann has yet to write anything but junior high snark about the book. I was hoping she might read it and have something funny or interesting to say. Instead, she just puts out snark.

1jpb said...

mariner,

WTF

I don't know what you're trying to say re what I wrote.

Please expand on your thoughts.

Scott said...

@Patrick: Maybe he lost his grip.

Or perhaps the pin fell out of his hinge.

Ann Althouse said...

"Yes, and people who can't spell "pabulum" can lecture us about what a dunce Sarah Palin is."

I've been through the whole pabulum/pablum thing on this blog before. Interestingly, I've changed my opinion. The "baby food" meaning, based on the brand Pablum, should be lower-cased: pablum. "Pabulum" is a more general word for food.

Scott said...

How about "farina"?

chuck b. said...

Talk about judging the creative writing...

He says the same thing about her all the time. Unhinged grip on reality, deeply disturbed, fantastic story about her fifth pregnancy... yes, yes. Will there be anything new?

I continue to visit his blog (judge me as you will), and it's becoming sad, but I notice a few things...

For example, reality is a particularly big concept for him. Objective reality, reality checks, version of reality, actual reality, current reality. You can find all reality cliches all over the place. I just checked, the word appears 10 times on just the first page of his blog. He seems to write and quote reality in equal measure.

(Compare that to Althouse where reality appears once [to talk about Andrew Sullivan, and as part of the a magazine named "Unreality"] or Instapundit where it currently appears twice.)

Not sure what it reveals, but I can't help but notice. And it does intrigue me.

Reality is just one example.


The captcha is "prouse"!

1jpb said...

"Interestingly, I've changed my opinion."

and

"Digress only to be funny/interesting."

Well, I guess the bar is pretty low for what qualifies as 'interesting.' Hopefully, the 'funny' hurdle is a little higher.

You're probably right on both counts. Of course, if Miss Sarah makes it to the Senate, that's the end of the White House for her. After Barry's tenure, it will be at least another 48 years before people elect someone from Congress to the Presidency.

Scott said...

Can we focus on Andy's unhinged grip on reality, because he did a Pat Buchanan about 5 years ago.

I might also add that my wife can give you an argument on that last point.

Scott said...

@chuck b.: That's a hell of an astute observation.

Also, he hasn't commented much on the book yet. If Palin was going to sue, she would have to do it based on Sullivan's earlier posts, wouldn't she?

traditionalguy said...

John...Thanks for supporting Palin with zeal. She is the best candidate. So long as Todd doesn't wear shorts, the professior will likely support her. But hearing good criticism and correcting blind spots is exactly what Sarah needs from her friends now. When I did jury trials I learned after the trial that many non-commital looking jurors were always on my side, but they wore poker faces so as not to reveal their positions too soon. So I learned to go easy criticising a lack of open support as if it meant opposition.

The Atlantic needs to announce that he has left blogging to spend more time with his family.

Sara said...

Pablum?

I realize there is no celebrity gossip to interest you, no movie gossip, no fashion stuff. And I realize that when she gets into the fierce budget negotiations and the fight for the gas pipeline and the Petroleum profits tax, it gets complicated. Maybe too complicated for a law professor or columnist such as Sully to understand.

Maybe you should try reading the book before calling it pablum or her dumb.

Unfortunately, I also have no time, and won't have until the weekend.

But I'll tell you what -- were I in your shoes, I wouldn't have agreed to do a Bloggingheads review on it, a mere 2 days after it came out. That's awful. When I reviewed Clinton's book, it took me a whole month to do so.

And you're already calling it pablum, too. I already know what to expect.

Shanna said...

Ok, I had to go the link about suing. Here’s what he says:
I've heard it before from a source very close to her - a source who also told me that Palin was obsessed with this blog for much of the campaign.

I might be obsessed, or at the very least trainwreck fascinated, by some crazy loon on the internet who was actually in a real publication who made up insane stories about the birth of my child.

It is not libel to ask a politician to verify a public claim relevant to her campaign that seems weird on inspection

To think that a 40 something woman might have a down syndrome child seems weird only to ONE person. And that person is clearly insane.

ADDED: This is pure speculation, but I wonder if Palin has threatened to sue Sullivan for defamation.

This would be absolute folly on her part. Mohammed Al-Fayed has called Prince Philip every evil name under the sun, and alleged infinite amount of things about him, regarding the death of Princess Diana. No lawsuit. And our libel laws are MUCH stricter than Americas.

The only time a British monarch has taken someone to court for libel is in 1911, if memory serves. King George V sued a newspaper owner obsessed with the story that the King, in his youth, had contracted a legal marriage and fathered three children, thus making his legitimate marriage, bigamous. He devoted edition after edition to this subject, until the King was advised to take him to court (where the journalist lost). Strange that it happened to be about a matter very similar to the one Sullivan is obsessed by -- birth and legitimacy.

Not only that, Shanna, but though I knew that Heather, Palin's sister had an autistic child (and two cousins too), but Palin's autobio reveals a very interesting fact.

Todd Palin has a cousin with Down Syndrome.

Of course, for deranged people like Sullivan, that doesn't weaken the argument that Todd raped his own daughter Bristol and Palin gave birth to it, to cover up the infamy.

vbspurs said...

No one likes those comments, and it's one of the GREATEST trials of being on Ann's blog, that she doesn't/can't get rid of well-known trolls.

I was trying to imagine Andy reading the book with a yellow highlighter, looking for Secret Clues, but, having only glancing contact with the Da Vinci Code, couldn't really make it work. Echoing mariner at the top of the comments, I don't think "rigorous" means what Sullivan thinks it means...

Andrea said...

Vbspurs: I'm not sure that the analogy between Prince Phillip not suing someone who defamed him and Sarah Palin is at all apropos. Sarah Palin is not royalty. Perhaps when she was still governor of Alaska it would have been foolish of her to sue Andrew Sullivan, but now she is a private citizen, and Sullivan really has no grounds for his bizarre obsession. On the other hand, he's so obviously, pathetically insane about the matter that maybe a more proper response to his outbursts would be some sort of restraining order. He sounds like only the thought of having to endure Alaskan weather is keeping him from stalking her physically.

Doug said...

He is kind of sad now. I watched an episode of the dog whisperer once where when the dog was a puppy the family played with the dog by having him chace a laser light on the floor. The dog loved it. Then he got so used to chasing it that he would roam around looking for the laser when it wasn't even on. The dog ended up trapped in a state of paranoia where his whole life he was searching the ground for this one little laser light. He couldn't live an ordinary life. It was sad. The dog whisperer came in and cured the dog (as he always does) within 10 minutes. But it took somebody to snap the dog out of the trance from searching from something that he was overly obsessed with so that he could live a normal life.

Pat said...

Andrew mentions in an email posted on Politico that Palin did not sue him, and that her claims that he posted that Trig was Bristol's baby are untrue. However, he undercuts himself by then saying that she's the leader of the Republican Party. Who knew?

He also falls back on the standard defense of all conspiracy theorists: "I'm just asking questions."

Dust Bunny Queen said...

How do you solve a problem like Farina?

Prunes?

vbspurs said...

I totally understand your point, Andrea, but Sarah Palin is a politician with a future not just a private citizen.

She needs to think of her image as someone who can take the many many shots that will be levelled at her as a potential President (or let's just say for now, Senator). If the American public sees that she is complaining about this, how ever legitimate most normal people think it to be, they will lose confidence in her ability to take a punch.

Disastrous for any potential high office holder.

Very good advice. She should rise above this ridiculous man. Treat the entire topic as being beneath consideration and move on to topics of policy and substance.

I'll bet Palin is just O2 for Sullivan's page views.

Can I ask everyone to join the Sully Book Club? It's a very special club: each day each member sends him a new book in the hopes that he'll go silent anew.

Andrea said...

vbspurs: it would be one thing if Sullivan were attacking just her. But he's attacking her family as well. (He's not just claiming Trig is not her son, but that he's really her daughter's child, and so on. A lot of Americans don't like children being used to get at a parent, so she'd probably get a more favorable response if she sued based on that fact. On the other hand, he's so obviously a buffoon now that suing him would be like punching a mime: satisfying, maybe, but rather pointless.

Andrea said...

Just ignore that unclosed parenthesis in my last comment. Pretend it's not there. Pretend it's Andrew Sullivan nattering on about Trig Palin and the comment is Sarah Palin, rising above his petty obsession!

EDH said...

Here's my theory:

Trig Palin, not Sarah, should sue Andrew Sullivan for defamation.

Trig is not a public figure.

The scope of Sullivan's discovery is likely to be much more limited.

Sullivan's claims of illegitimacy have damaged the reputation of this vulnerable child in the community.

section9 said...

No, you all are children! You underestimate the towering mind of the Great Andrew Sullivan:

What will come out from Andrew's seclusion is the following-

1. Trig is Sarah's child by Levi!

2. Tripp is Bristol's child by Todd!

Titus was somewhere in Alaska at the time. But that's for him to say!

Trust me: Andrew will not let us down. Unlike, say, Levi let down Gay America during his photoshoot for Playgirl.

Someone will come on here and all backassward-like, accuse the Palins of being "Althouse Hillbillies". You get the picture.

Nomilk said...

It is oh-so public knowledge that Sully has been infected with H.I.V. for what seems like decades now. He has admitted to abuse of steroids resulting in steroid-induced rage. And he is a well-known user of illegal psychoactive drugs--indeed, having recently been subject to federal arrest (but inadequate prosecution) on that very account.

How he has a shred of credibility is beyond me. How a formerly prestigious publication like THE ATLANTIC can host him I know not. Because it is clear that he has taken leave of any good sense he ever had. Whether it's the H.I.V. or the steroids or the pot, it hardly matters at this point. He is a wreck of human being and his brain is toast (or a fried egg, if you will).

I must admit that I'm not a neurologist but I'm just asking "factually verifiable questions" about Queen Mary Jane Milky Loads's mental state.

Scott said...

@nomilk: Those are all ad hominem arguments, and as such, they reduce you to Sullivan's level. You have nothing to complain about.

Nomilk said...

Those are all ad hominem arguments


I'm not criticizing him for being openly homosexual, or pseudo-Catholic, or British, or a scofflaw--as repugnant as all those thing are. On the contrary, my questions are all about the level of Her Sodomistic Majesty's competence to comment on public affairs. He has admitted to using several kinds of mind-altering substances and he quite possibly suffers from HIV encephalopathy. Surely political correctness does not extend so far that we should be required to listen to the ravings of a mad man?

In fact, I would pity him the spectacle he has made of himself--if he weren't so vile.

MadisonMan said...
