TNR, A Little Self-Awareness Please?

Funny story, a guy named Adam Wheeler was admitted to Harvard by allegedly faking his way in. This hasn't escaped the notice of the Post, New York Times, ABC News, etc.

The most hilarious take of the day goes to the New Republic staff, bragging that they'd recently rejected Wheeler's application for an internship:

We here at The New Republic are not so easily duped.

The line has been excised. A subscriber in TNR's comments notes that "for the New Republic to boast of its scam-busting acumen makes as much sense as, oh, Mark Souder preening himself on his devotion to family values... in an interview with his mistress."
