Andrew Sullivan got suckered:

From his post of 15 September: (excerpt)
By chance I bumped into Senator John Warner last night at the fifth anniversary party for the Chris Matthews Show. I was able to go up and shake him warmly by the hand and thank him from the depth of my heart for protecting this country's honor. He replied quite simply: "It's just the right thing for the country." The sight of so many Republican senators and one former secretary of state finally standing up against the brutality and dishonor of this president's military detention policies is a sign of great hope.
UPDATE: (Welcome Atrios visitors!) What struck me when I read that post by Sullivan exactly one week ago was the apparent sincerity of Warner. And Sullivan seemed to be engaged in an honest exchange. In a somewhat similar vein, we read this at TAPPED:
Why would [McCain] sacrifice his accelerating rapprochement with the right over this issue, particularly right before the 2006 election. [...] Our honorable editor man, however, leaned back and offered the novel interpretation, "Maybe McCain just believes in this, and is doing what he thinks is right."
This compromise, or whatever you want to call it, should be the death-knell for any notions that "moderate" Republicans will be anything other than enablers of Bush.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, I can't count to two, so same thing.

Good observation, but it's not exactly news that Sullivan is a gullble idiot, eh? Lately the worthless fuckwit is letting himself get hysterical and bamboozled about Iran, in the same way, by the same people, as he now admits he was suckered into supporting our glorious Mesopotamian adventure.
