Andrew Sullivan Is Making Sense
No, really. Sullivan has been on a roll (can't believe I just wrote that, but hey) explaining the significance of Ratzinger/Benedict XVI for reformist/progressive Catholics. This morning, Sullivan offers a particularly revealing political analogy:
I was trying to explain last night to a non-Catholic just how dumb-struck many reformist Catholics are by the elevation of Ratzinger. And then I found a way to explain. This is the religious equivalent of having had four terms of George W. Bush only to find that his successor as president is Karl Rove. Get it now?
Yup, I do.
