Chait ‘08

The Friends of Jonathan Chait '08 Exploratory Committee has not (yet) hired me as an Internet consultant, but I have a friend who is a TNR subscriber, and he got me the full text of Chait's declaration of his intent to seek the presidential nomination in 2008.

Chait gets the Moonbat Mullah squarely in his sights, then delivers the Mighty Everlasting Pimp Slap From Hell:
Kos announces in his headline, "TNR's defection to the Right is now complete." If this sounds vaguely familiar, it's because it is. More than two years ago, Kos launched what he called his "anti-TNR campaign," in which he declared us to be enemies of the people. Wait, sorry, wrong jargon--I meant, enemies of the people-powered movement. Some examples of the anti-TNR campaign can be found here, here, and here. ... In good revolutionary style, Kos ends with a ringing declaration that TNR remains dead and victory for people-power is at hand. "It is now beyond clear that the dying NEW REPUBLIC is mortally wounded," he writes. Where once it was clear, now it is beyond clear, and where once we were dying we are now both dying and mortally wounded. He continues, "They no longer (thank heavens!) have a monopoly on progressive punditry." When did we ever have a monopoly on progressive punditry? What about The Nation, The American Prospect, The Washington Monthly, every liberal op-ed columnist, and the like? How did I miss this period of all-consuming power?
There's more, but I've heard enough. That's it, as far as I'm concerned. The man and the hour have met. Unless and until he makes a Shermanesque disavowal of White House ambition, all of us "Lieberman-worshipping neo-cons," must dedicate every waking hour to making Jonathan Chait the next president of these United States!
