Sensible Sully

Once again, I find myself agreeing with the Iron Queen, Andrew Sullivan. For a self professed conservative, he makes alot of sense, and it just goes to show that conservatives and progressives can agree on some things.
Anyway, Sullivan makes the point that once you look past the rhetoric, Dick Durbin did not actually say anything wrong:

I've now read and re-read Senator Dick Durbin's comments on interrogation techniques at Guantanamo Bay. They are completely, perfectly respectable. The rank hysteria being perpetrated by some on the right is what is shameful. Hugh Hewitt should answer one single question: does he doubt the FBI interrogator who witnessed the appalling treatment of some detainees at Guantanamo?

Naturally, Sully is getting lambasted by the rightwingnuts. Truthfully though, it is people like Sullivan and John Cole that give me hope that the right is hopelessly jingoistic.
