Sorry to lay it on thick today, but it's worth noting that one of the reasons I just can't trust anything Andrew Sullivan says about Barack Obama is that he's incredibly proud of himself (update: more) for publishing The Bell Curve ("a scabrous piece of racial pornography masquerading as scholarship"). So it's worth noting that the civil and intelligent debate on race that he's so glad Obama will lead us towards is necessary, in part, because of Sullivan's own work.
