Psycho Sully, Qu'est-ce Que C'est

At 12:20 p.m. today (if Sully's time stamps can be believed), Andy Sully writes:

I have no idea why the Clinton administration should get a pass in dithering while a mortal threat gathered in the 1990s. I hope ABC stands firm.

At 6:14 p.m., Sully gives John Podhoretz an "Yglesias Award" nomination -- which, in Sully's tiny mind, is a compliment* -- for writing this:

"The portrait of Albright is an unacceptable revision of recent history and an unfair mark on a public servant who, no matter her shortcomings, doesn't deserve to be remembered by millions of Americans as the inadvertent (and truculent) savior of Osama bin Laden."

So what happened to Sully between noon and six?

* The "award" is actually an insult and not a compliment, as it suggest that Matt Y.'s primary virtue as a writer is not his writing or thinking, but his willingness to "criticize his own side." It's sort of like giving a "Sully Award" to those demonstrating a hysterical, pathological fear of the Clenis.

Added: Except in Sully's case, it would be accurate.
