A Few Good Blog-Posts .... and One Shameless Plug

- Steve Clemons' blog, "The Washington Note", has been an indispensible resource for information on the Bolton nomination. While he opposes Bolton's confirmation, Steve has been incredibly careful to report on the important allegations made against Bolton without devolving into personal attacks against the man's character. Today, Steve began posting alternative candidates for the UN position: Rep. Heather Wilson, Fmr. Rep. Doug Bereuter, Fmr. Sen. Alan Simpson, Rita Hauser, Sen. Lamar Alexander, Fmr. Rep. Amo Houghton, Fmr. Trade Rep Carla Hills, and Richard Haass, head of the Council on Foreign Relations. Any or whom would be better than John Bolton.

- My centrist allies Alan Stewart Carl and Joe Weedon at The Yellow Line are going to be guests on the Subject2Discussion radio show this Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT. You will be able to listen in here.

- The Moderate Voice's Joe Gandelman addresses Pat Robertson's 'comments' yesterday on "This Week" in "A Skunk Spraying inside the GOP Tent." "So," Gandelman writes, "Robertson now says our judges are in some ways worse than terrorists. Why? Because they don't rule the way HE wants. And Republicans (rightfully) complained about some of the verbal excesses of Michael Moore? What happens to a tent when a skunk sprays in the tent? The tent smells. And some people leave the tent." It's either that, or we pick up the tent and move it away from the skunk!

- And now the shameless plug. Over on Sunday Morning Talk, I have a guest post on Hagel's "Face the Nation" interview, which I also discuss here. Rory's got a great blog going over there, and I'm very honored to have been asked to contribute to it.

You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
must have atypical & quiescent potential for
your intended readership. May I suggest that
you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
Please remember to never restrict anyone's
opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything, a season for every
activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time
to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time
to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and
a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to
scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time
to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A time to keep and
a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time
to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak
up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for
war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
