I am a huge fan of Andrew Sullivan and the Daily Dish. Andrew is everything the blogosphere could want in an experienced and compassionate elder statesmen, sort of a father figure. It happens that he and the Dish have been very good to me personally; whatever limited exposure I've had owes a great deal to the kindness and interest of the Dish.

However, Bruce Bawer's daily invective against Arabs and Islam is to me a great stain on the reputation of the Daily Dish. Andrew is of course not responsible for the opinions of a guest blogger, nor are his dedicated support staff. But as an entity, I think the Dish has been harmed by Bawer's consistent bigotry, and I'm very disappointed. That's all.
