URLs du Jour (7/5/2005)

  • Something I'm ashamed for finding even slightly interesting: Martha Stewart's nickname in the slammer was "M. Diddy".
  • Michael Barone explains why a bloodbath over the next Supreme Court nominee is inevitable. Catalysts will be groups like "People for the American Way" and "The Alliance for Justice":

    These groups exist for the purpose of defeating Republican judicial nominees, and their financial supporters -- the big money people and those sending in small amounts in response to direct mail appeals -- would be furious if they meekly accept a Bush appointee as Republican senators accepted Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg when they were nominated by Bill Clinton. Not opposing nominees would be an act of self-destruction for these groups, and Washington lobbying groups are not in the habit of self-destruction.
