Why the New Republic Sucks in ’07

I don’t link enough to MJ Rosenberg. He’s easily the best writer at TPMCafé which, considering the presence of Reed Hundt and Todd Gitlin, is really saying something. And while he’s good at 2008 punditry, he’s at his best on Israel/Palestine issues. Witness this paragraph:

Marty Peretz, the Harvard TA who destroyed the New Republic, says the same thing. He is dancing the hora over the end of the two-state solution.

From here on out, I will refer to Marty Peretz exclusively as “the Harvard TA who destroyed the New Republic.” Because that’s quite possibly the best smear characterization I have ever heard.
