And political anonyblogger Alex deLarge has apparently removed himself to Martini Revolution along with a couple MR writers …
What’s really kind of pathetic is that all the content Martini Republic spent three years creating has now been hidden or destroyed, including the the last flurry of vitriol between Alex and Mailander.
Say what you will about their insights on politics and booze, their raw hard-left diatribes and overly-frequent bouts of reckless and vicious character assassination, they were original and said whatever the fuck they wanted to. The blogosphere’s a tad more boring without ’em.
Here’s the headstone, from Laura:
May 4, 2004 – May 5, 2007
Martini Republic was founded by Laura, Joseph and Alex.
Like many other republics, it no longer functions and now no longer exists.
I was first to move on and I now blog at a later date.
Joseph was next to go. He currently blogs at Mainbrace, where he maintains some of his old MR columns. Look for the debut of a new blog from Joseph and some friends on July 1, 2007.
Don’t worry about the demise of Martini Republic. It was great fun while it lasted, almost ’til the very last day.
Thank you for your loyalty, readership and support.
On behalf of Martini Republic, yours truly,
