New Republic Minister of Truth to wed
And a nice Jewish girl, to boot!
Fresh from legislating that, henceforth, no content will appear in his rag that is in any way offensive (piece of October 21), Peter Beinart, overlord - I nearly said Führer - of the Republic is to marry a tax attorney called Diana Hartstein, according to that fruitful source of unlikely nuggets, the New York Observer .
The Observer's Anna Jane Grossman says it'll be a Sephardic ceremony . Oh, and the bride is a serious babe. (She makes no comment on Beinart's qualities as an amatory companion: does that mean he's a complete dog, or am I reading too much into it?)
The Plawg's best wishes to them both: and may he take his conjugal duties so seriously as to foreclose his career in journalism, thus permitting the Republic to jettison his milquetoast pussy-footing offend no one policy, and get onto some real journalism.
(Is Beinart a Jew ? And why do I feel I (or, should I say, even I?) needed the cover of the Jewish wedding with Ms Hartstein to ask the question? A demonstration of just how poisonous the Beinart Doctrine really is!)
