On "The Nation" Versus "The New Republic" Versus "The Weekly Standard"

If those are my choices, I would definitely take "The New Republic". Yes, it's about several degrees to the left of where I am generally but at least it isn't a socialist rag like "The Nation" (really, Naomi Klein?) or a neoconservative template for endless wars like "The Weekly Standard". That, and the magazine has had some very good writers over the years; from Charles Krauthammer to Michael Kinsley to Peter Beinhart.

No contest....The Weekly Standard......P.J.O'Rourke when he was at his best.....

"Why do liberals have no problem killing unborn babies but not convicted murderers?"

"Liberals keep getting their toes caught in their sandals and hitting their heads on their wind chimes."

Yeah, O'Rourke is definitely awesome.
