Andrew Sullivan has opened polling for his year end awards, one of which is the “Moore award,” given to some liberal who says something completely crazy like what Michael Moore might say. Or something. Usually, the nominees range from people who said completely reasonable, factual things, but that go against Conventional Wisdom, to people who just weren’t civil enough in their prose.
Anyway, Dan is nominated, and explains:
Of course, what I said that earned me a Moore Award nomination was a true and accurate characterization of the position taken by HPV vaccine opponents. I stand by it and I don’t think accurately describing the POVs of anti-HPV vaccine POS’s counts as “divisive, bitter and intemperate left-wing rhetoric.”
And he wants to win, so go vote for him.
