Odds and ends
Here's a round-up of other news that you may or may not find useful:
Ann Coulter hates John Roberts and may be a plagiarist -- though the first is more surprising than the latter. After all, there is not much room for originality when you're chanting those talking points.
Chris Bowers over at MyDD.com manages to use the word "partisan hack" -- or some variation of it -- a full eight times in three small grafs on Roberts. It seems we're getting too angry for words, or at least synonyms (just a bit of gentle joshing, Chris, my progressive brother-in-arms). The discussion below the post is fascinating if you're into the intricacies of political strategy inside the beltway.
Jessica over at Feministing destroys any remaining hope that Roberts isn't anti-choice.
And if you're sick of all this Roberts-o-mania, over at the New Yorker, Noah Baumbach's discovered that his dog is Tom Cruise. A taste: "Do you know the history of crate training? Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Cause I do. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talk about things you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t understand. Like saying dogs are wild. Dogs are wildÃ¢â‚¬â€that is glib."
