Martin Peretz on The Plame Carnival

Tuesday, September 12, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

After the Lamontites finish off Joe Lieberman, they’ll srat their boycott of Peretz’s magazine.

Too late to stop him from blogging at his new address, “The Spine.”  Nice bit of autobriography here:

Then there is the spine of my past: a man in his mid-sixties, a family man with children, a teacher at Harvard for almost four decades, formerly of the New Left (very important to understanding my spine) now of the center, at the helm of The New Republic (which I have deliberately maintained as undogmatic center-left) for 32 years. I have certain loyalties, espoused unabashedly. And, as I write, I call to mind an old Yiddish proverb: “If you betray your cause, you support the other’s.”

Peretz joins Michael Barone as one of the few D.C. fixtures of old media to begin blogging.  It suits them both.
