Open Left closing

Rather abruptly, the Open Left blog announced yesterday it wouldn't be posting new content. Not terribly surprising--Matt Stoller left a while back to work with Alan Grayson and Chris Bowers hadn't posted in ages (he went to DailyKos, supposedly). Nevertheless the site will be missed, sort of, by loyal RSS readers the last four years.

From the farewell posts it sounds as if many of the OL bloggers are moving on to fabulous careers further up the food chain. After ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, stopping the bailouts, and keeping Dems in both houses of congress, their successful lives are truly deserved.
