Andrew Sullivan is a former editor of The New Republic and current blogger for The Atlantic . Often referred to as ‘Excitable Andy’ for his frequent histrionics, Sullivan is known for masquerading as a conservative and pursuing wild conspiracy theories, often involving Sarah Palin’s uterus. Excitable Andy is also know for changing positions, then viciously denouncing anyone who shared his previous views, attempting to deceive readers into believing that he’s always held whatever happens to be his position du jour.
“What you probably cannot do is negotiate with economic equivalent of terrorists. What Cantor and Boehner are doing is essentially letting the world know they have an economic WMD in their possession. And it will go off if you do not give them everything they want, with no negotiation possible. That’s the nature of today’s GOP. It needs to be destroyed before it can recover.”
