Mickey posits a perilous race analogy:
What if Kerry were debating a conservative on affirmative action, and that conservative had a black wife, and Kerry gratuitously brought that up in an attempt to cost his opponent the racist vote? Would Andrew Sullivan approve? I don't think so. ...
First off, I don't buy the cynical explanation of Kerry's reference.
And there you have it: complete, unadulterated horse poopy. When you "don't buy" the cynical explanation about a Panderer-in-Chief's position as the most likely explanation, you have proved yourself to be
a) a freaking idiot or
b) a mindless apologist the person opposing the candidate that you hate
Since Sully obivously isn't stupid, I'm leaning towards choice "b". Yeah, I know. I'm going out on a limb here.
Update: Ace adds his take on this subject while linking to some others. Not surprisingly, I'm not the only one that noticed Sullivan's, umm, nuance on this particular subject.
