Link of the Day--Marty Peretz, Racist

Marty Peretz, the long time editor of The New Republic has become an intolerant racist over the past few years. He was always crazy on the Israel-Palestine issue but he has apparently lost his mind. Once, and not so long ago, The New Republic was a progressive force among political publications. Then, sometime in the early 1990s, they decided that their future was to tell liberals how wrong they were on everything, but not for the reasons conservatives think they're wrong. It's really disgusting. Peretz's comments on the Lieberman-Lamont race have been particularly vomit-inducing.

Here's an amusing letter to Peretz from General JC Christian that sums it up pretty well.
