Good news for a change
Well, it’s finally over. Martin Peretz, who, according to David Horowitz’s Frontpage webzine, “has been a pillar of responsible liberalism since buying The New Republic magazine in 1974,” has finally been shown the door. He did not go quietly. You can find his parting remarks here and also here and here. Peretz left TNR as he inhabited it: in a splendid (and splenetic) fit of pique, pessimism, and personality-driven politics.
Good riddance. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Marty.
On second thought, do let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, you Kahanist git.
