The Green-Eyed Pundit

So, apparently, whimsy has no place on the op-ed page of the New York Times.

Envy-fuelled ax-grinding screeds are, however, apparently hunky-dory on the Web version of a major journal of politics and culture.

I'm beginning to grow weary of The New Republic. There is something worth reading in nearly every edition, but its reflexive sneer is wearing thin. Of course, the bitchiness comes from the top down, and as falleth Peretz, so falleth the Republic—meaning that it's likely to get worse before it gets better.
