Andy Sullivan Pwn3d, Twice In Two Daze

October 4, 2009

Twice in two days? Is Andy in final staging before he leaves the atmosphere?

Does he not realize that it's an Aussie comedy team, not a politician and a news interviewer? Oh, geez. h/t s_dog on Twitter.

Sarah Palin Has Some Relatives In Australia

A guide to damage control. Some context:

On August 19th, 2007, an oil tanker off the coast of Australia split in two, dumping 20,000 tons of crude oil into the sea. Senator Collins, a member of the Australian Parliament, appeared on a TV news program to reassure the Australian public.

This is one version of the explanation:

    And even the quickest Google check would have given Sullivan this:

    Andrew Sullivan: Super Genius.
    To be fair to our mates across the Tasman, I should note that John Clarke (“Senator Collins”) is a Kiwi.

    Well, gosh… Why should he check facts? No one on the left bothers with that sorta thing! That’s why they get caught flat-footed when some interesting little tidbit comes out via anyone bothering to check into things.
    That’s one good thing about folks like ol’ Pandering Andy: You can tell them anything and they’ll believe it just so long as it follows along with whatever crazy idears are floating around in their vacant heads. That’s why so many libs believe so strongly in whatever the regular media says. It’s yet another “change.” After all, wasn’t it a bunch of democrat activists that said “never trust anyone over 30″ and libs for the last eight years who claimed everything in the media is a lie?
    I find it quite funny that now the media is so clearly in the tank for them and their golden god everything spewed by the media has to be true, no matter how outrageous, ill-conceived and un-verified.
    It’s just pathetic. But at least it’s reliable. It’s almost comforting. You never have to worry how they’ll handle a particular issue. And, to be honest, that’s EXACTLY how Giles and O’Keefe managed to sucker in ACORN.

    Someone explain to me why this Sullivan guy is drawing a paycheck for this.

  6. Gary Maxwell says:

    Be glad he is drawing a paycheck, otherwise he rampant case of AIDS and its astronomical drug costs would be foisted directly upon you. As is, you can just not read the drivel, he is so predictable these days the column could be prewritten based on a Bush sucks, Republicans hate gays and boy am I enamored with Obama trilogy.

    Just goes to show ya how Andy’ll “swallow” just about anything.

  8. Ozwitch says:

    Oh man I can’t stop laughing. Sullivan actually thought this was real?????
    It’s classic John Clarke – but apart from doing some basic Googling, surely Sullivan could tell the difference between a comedian who pretends to be a politician and a real politician.
    Oh, wait . . . .

    I Can See Australia from Alaska!!!!!!
    This is just too rich…..Andy has gone bonkers!

    Andrew Sullivan* finds God (or possibly Viagra):
    I recall one marathon twelve-hour session of passion many years ago now. It was only afterwards that I realized I had barely had a single trace of an analytic thought for the longest period I could then remember. I was never happier. As I finally collapsed into my lover’s arms with the final orgasm that drained every last drop of desire or need from my body and soul, I understood for the first time why the French call coming “le petit mort”. It can be the emptying of self entirely. Which is why sex is so close at times to the presence of the divine, and reflects and incarnates God in ways few other things can so easily. We are more animal and more divine in sex than in any other activity.
    *Warning: Some people have experienced nausea and vomiting after reading about Andrew Sullivan’s sex life.

  11. Proud Liberal says:

    silly little wingnuts…. of course Sully knew it was a goof. You guys jump on things… like Obama thinks there are 57 states or some nonsense like that as if it were in the slightest meaningful. Silly, silly, silly.
