Sullivan and the Beast

We don’t traffic in gossip and conspiracy theories here at Ricochet, but I can’t be the only one who’s wondering why, exactly, Andrew Sullivan is packing up and moving to the Daily Beast. In honor of Andrew, I’m waiving the rules on gossip and conspiracy theories, just for this thread. If he takes exception, all he has to do to put the persistent rumors we’re about to start to rest is provide documentary evidence that we’re wrong. Can’t be fairer than that, can you?
