Prof Bainbridge to Sullivan: Get A Grip

Andrew Sullivan is nothing if not excitable...those who followed his torturous journey through the 2004 election won't be surprised to find him laying on the hyperbole a bit over the selection of Pope Benedict XVI. So much so, in fact, that he has reduced our good friend Professor Bainbridge to calling him an ass.

The selection of Ratzinger was destined to be viewed as a disappointment by many, but Bainbridge makes a pretty persuasive case that the only thing Ratzinger is unbendable on is the stance against the moral relativism so prevalent in the world today. That's an argument that strikes me close to my heart; I intend to write more on the subject later. For now, I leave you in the capable hands of the good professor...
