One of my favorite blogs has gone silent since 9/8/08 at 1:48 PM. I am a regular reader of the Daily Dish, Andrew Sullivan's blog on the The Atlantic. Andrew is one of the most briliant voices and writers in the political blogosphere and is a study in contrasts: a gay, HIV+, conservative Brit expatriot who supports Barrack Obama for President. Rumor has that The Atlantic fired him.
With more than 1 million hits a day on his blog, it won't be long before he reappears elsewhere. He's moved sites before.
UPDATE: Fellow Atlantic blogger Mark Ambinder just posted this:
Lots of e-mails asking about Andrew's whereabouts. I checked in with him; he's fine. He's taking a few days off. Worry not, fans.
Still very suspicious. He's probably getting a lot of flack for his criticism of VP candidate Sarah Palin.
