Thank God, the faux-liberal, neo-con editorial staff of the New Republic finally bites the dust. In contrast to Julia Ioffe, who recommends sitting shiva for the long overdue demise of the likes of Foer and Wieseltier and their like, I think this calls for a celebration. The New Republic has for decades claimed to be a voice of liberalism. Decades ago that claim may have had some truth to it, but certainly since the time of its purchase by Martin Peretz in 1974 if not earlier, it became a bastion of the Israel Lobby and neo-con bullying. So sayonara Wieseltier, Foer, Ioffe and all others of their ilk. Possibly there are jobs for you with the likes of Sheldon Adelson. And thank you Chris Hughes for sweeping clean the Augean stables.
