Posting About Andrew Sullivan Without Directly Posting About Andrew Sullivan

Is the only way I will ever post about Andrew Sullivan. But when a couple guys like Jonah Goldberg and Julian Sanchez use his new book as a proxy for continuing the never ending conservative/libertarian debate I pay attention. Focus for this round: Tradition vs Social Evolution. First shot fired by Goldberg in his recent review of Sullivan's Conservative Soul in The National Review. No link. Second shot--Sanchez in this post at Hit & Run peering into Goldberg's "conservative soul"and finding inconsistencies. Response--Goldberg uses gay marriage attempting to better articulate his philosophy in regards to the place of tradition within a society in this post at NRO.

Click through the links, its worth 15 minutes on a rainy Sunday.
