Andrew Sullivan’s Still Talking

What? You thought there wouldn’t be some sort of Andrew Sullivan/Election Day interview? Sheesh, you’re more far gone than we thought.

If you kids head pop on over to our friends at Radar (click here, silly), you too can enjoy John Cook‘s interview between the famed homo-journo-politico. It’s definitely a good read, with Cook really sticking it to Sullivan (pictured, in a Boi From Troi artist’s rendition).
Here’s a taste from their discussion of the war in Iraq:

JC: We do know that perhaps hundreds of thousands of people that are dead now would still be alive.

AS: We don’t know that, actually. We know what has happened because of the result of our actions. We don’t know what the result of inaction would have been. Many people who opposed the Iraq war opposed the Afghanistan war. Not many of them are prepared now to admit it, but many of them did. All one can do is account for the decision one has made. But I don’t think the hard left, which was against anything Bush did, and actually believed that America deserved what Al Qaeda gave us, has been proven right. Do you?

JC: No.

AS: You don’t think Michael Moore, who said the Afghan war was about an oil pipeline deal, has been proven right. But I don’t see you demanding that he take account of his own errors.

JC: I’m not interviewing him right now.

Girl! Slap on a wig, some over-sized glasses and stick a cig in his hand, and John Cook may be the next Oriana Fallaci!

Of course, the boys talk about than just the war. Sullivan calls himself a rebel for being a Thatcherite, glosses over Mark Foley like a pro and defends his love of Reagan. Wheee!
