Dynasty a la carte

So Andrew Sullivan goes from ceaselessly attacking Hillary Clinton on the ground that it continues dynastic politics -- and then without batting an eyelid recalls feeling the power of JFK's charisma and approvingly noting JFK's daughter's (Caroline) and brother's (Ted) endorsement of his current hero Barack Obama.

In another post he manages to get in an approving reference to the Clinton-hating Mickey Kaus (despite their past feuds) and a catty Clinton-hating quote from the mysterious Weekly Standard blogger Richelieu. The quote from Richelieu cries out for a South Park-style "That's gay!" which is maybe what Sully is getting at in his response.
