Andrew Sullivan is making a big deal out of one of our NRO contributors’ description of Roger Simon’s social views as “lean[ing] hard to the left,” since these views–pro-same-sex marriage, pro-choice, etc.–are not all that far left. He finds the characterization “disturbing.” He is too easily disturbed. Simon himself, in the quote to which the description is a preface, calls his own social views “very liberal.” Sullivan even quotes that remark. Maybe our contributor was simply paraphrasing what Simon himself said. And maybe Sullivan should lay off.
