I have a lot of conflicting thoughts about Chris Hughes and the New Republic. But for now, this list of TNR resignations is notable not for who is on it, but for who isn’t:

Who seems to be the only TNR writer staying on? Brian Beutler. Welcome to the new New Republic.
Can we say that the last vestiges of the old New Republic have been swept away?
Bwahaha… Hughes should call up Joe Conason and Eleanor Clift to round out the polemical variety… Funny when the Night of the Long Juiceboxes finally came, which group ended up with the opposite of what they’d envisioned, i.e. out on the bricks — don’t bet against bazillionaire media tycoons, kids!
HAHAHA. Beutler. Not coincidentally one of the first big hires of the Chris Huges era.
