Over the last few years, I have become a regular reader of Andrew Sullivan's blog. Sullivan calls himself a conservative. He supported Bush in 2000, he was a rabid supporter of the Iraq War, and he has that knee-jerk, completely irrational, totally insane over-reaction anytime someone mentions either Hillary Clinton or Michael Moore. He simply cannot contain his bizarre hatred for both of them.
But over the last few years, Sullivan has been changing his tune (Personally, I never understood how a gay man in America could be a Republican, but I guess that was part of what made him stand out). Anyway, since '04, Sullivan has been on the correct side of issues like the Iraq War, US use of torture, and the blatantly illegal activities of the Cheney Administration. However, as right as he is on those issues, Sullivan shows he is a true wingnut when it comes to health care.
In a posting today entitled Shticko, Sullivan attempts to eviscerate the alternatives to the current for-profit health care system suggested by Michael Moore in his new film (which neither Sullivan nor I have seen). However, Sullivan shows that he is not someone who has "seen the light" on this issue as he makes the following enlightened comment, "And yes, I see no problem with the wealthy having access to better care than the less wealthy."
There it is, my friends. The conservative solution to our health care crisis -- do nothing and allow the wealthy to continue to have greater access. Not sure how someone can show such concern for the rights of Al Queda detainees, but does not care one iota about poor Americans suffering without access to a doctor. Interesting.
