I do take issue with Somerby's characterization of TNR as "perhaps our brightest political periodical." Sorry, Bob, but that hasn't been the case since favorite TDH whipping boy and engineer of the Conservative Crack-up Andy Sullivan was editor. It's still a haven for political nitwittery that was so egregiously displayed by Crowley in his John Kerry piece. Underread periodicals such as The American Prospect are much better.
