A Thought Amuses Me

At some moment or another, Andrew Sullivan is going to have to "de-green" his blog. What's his end-point? What historical event will cause him to decide that either the Iranian people have a perfect Jeffersonian democracy, or the mullahs have prevailed?

This is the problem with purely symbolic self-decoration.

i'm assuming that there will come a time when it will be obvious that there's simply no fight left in the protesters. the govt will have worn them down. he'll go back to blue, three weeks after that.
