There was a rumor circulating a while ago that Weinstein wanted to make ITT the official organ of the New Party. They deserve each other.

I've got to defend Judis, though. His politics are kind of ugly - Listian nationalist, I suppose you could say, like Michael Lind - but he's a smart fellow and did original research and reporting around DC. Since most left journalism these days consists of striking moral poses at tedious length, that was a refreshing change.
