Regarding Andrew Sullivan`s defense of the scientific facts on race and IQ,[Race And IQ. Again. Daily Dish, May 14, 2013], linked to by Steve below, I can say that this (modified limited) defense of the facts has always been Andrew Sullivan`s position. He`s been attacked for it since 1994. If you Google "Andrew Sullivan" Racist "Bell Curve" the screen below is what you get. 

One of them is from left-wing anti-think tank Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting in January, 1995, and the top one is from Gawker, today. (One is from a conservative blog.)

So the questions are "Why does he do this?" and "How does he get away with it?" I mean, the Heritage Foundation would fire him in a minute.
