“VELVET CONSERVATISM” — An article on New York Sun and New Republic owner Roger Hertog from The American Prospect. I don’t know how accurate it is, since I know nothing about the guy, but it certainly seems fair.

The best quote in the piece, though, is from Sun Editor-in-Chief Seth Lipsky:

“The right wing of the Democratic Party,” Lipsky told me recently, “is a depressed stock.”

That’s certainly true, and God knows I hear it from Tennessee Democrats all the time.
