Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers has a fascinating blog.

Have you noticed she has a highly misspellable name? It's spelled to rhyme with mere, but pronounced to rhyme with Myer. Surely all those school children who goof and spell it Harriet Myers can be forgiven the error of their ways.

Weekend Pundit notes and comments on a good post reacting to the latest blogosphere news storm, which has shown the Republican electoral coalition for what it is - a coalition, with factions who thought they were on the same page more fully than they were. It seems the fears of religious trampling of established secular law and society may have been less crazy than they appeared. It seems some concervatives and libertarians stand less on principle than they might even have believed themselves.

Instapundit points to an amusing bit of satire.

Has to be satire.

Haven't seen the "Bin Laden" video in which he reportedly channels Michael Moore, but based on the picture in this post it looks suspiciously like someone costumed to look like Osama. Dead and indistinguishable from guano on the floor of the cave? Yeah, probably. If not, then...

1 - Why haven't we heard from the bastard all this time.
2 - What are we waiting for! Let's show the world what a mound of raw DNA looks like.

You know, I really shouldn't play with other people's trolls. For one, it encourages them, and for another I don't have the time to devote to doing it properly. I'm sure more than one of the creatures has had its ego expanded by the assumption that I didn't have another response to its imagined brilliance, when in reality my time was consumed by things more important than tormenting random idiots on the internet.

Which is a rather long way of attempting to apologize to Jen, whose comments I may have helped turn into a nest of unreason by daring to mock one of these creatures, and of introducing the rather simple point that I was attempting to make therein, namely that if one wishes not to die from a botched abortion, there is a very simple way to avoid it: don't have an abortion.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled silence.

Think of the contrast! Julia Child, OSS agent who always modestly demurred at any suggestion she was a spy, insisting she was a "file clerk". I think JK could have learned a thing or two from Ms. Child.

A true American hero, she was.

Nuveau Fluff seems to think he killed Julia Child. What he doesn't know is that old cooks never die. They just fritter away. Or is that boil away?

Whichever it is, she'll remain seared in our memories like a surreptitious Cambodian Christmas on the authority of a President-elect.

This is a more honest and compelling Cambodia story than any random sentence ever to ooze out of John Kerry's mouth.

It's hard to blame NBC for attempting an undercover sting/exposé kind of operation. It's what media outlets like them do, for better or worse. What's funny is to see them get a "story" utterly different from the one they sought.

They probed for weakness and found strength. We are not all the sheep the media elite expect, and it doesn't take a federal bureuacracy to make things safer. Gimme a break.

The spin ought to be intriguing.

This sounds about right regarding Kerry's campaign, much as the rest does regarding the theoretical Kerry administration that hasn't a prayer of happening:

Kerry seems to be campaigning on the honor and trustworthiness of the Clinton presidency, the dynamic public persona of the Dukakis campaign, and the foreign policy expertise of the Carter presidency.
