“Radicalism”

An email from a friend:

You’re brought up in relation to it on Andrew’s site today. One point worth mentioning: AS was criticizing conservatives for not saying anything about Virginia, which he said had taken an action ‘just as radical’ as Massachusetts. Since when was Massachusetts’s action “radical”? Up until now, it’s just been an overdue step toward civil rights [according to Sullivan]. Also: If conservatives are supposed to condemn right-wing radicalism and Massachusetts is the flip side of Virginia, shouldn’t Andrew have criticized MA? I don’t remember that happening either.
