Ironically, We Are Famous for Our Good Attitude 

If you visit blogs in order of quality -- and why are you here so early? -- you are perhaps already aware that Yr. Mst. Hmbl. Mnrch. has accepted a kind offer to join the distinguished blogging team at Bad Attitudes, an outstanding site whose proprietors, Jerome Doolittle and Chuck Dupree, felt that their usual high-toned product could do with a little coarsening. Bad Attitudes is home to so many fine contributors that our maiden post is already in danger of scrolling off the main page, but if you hasten thence you may read our latest speculations on the Miller/Fitzgerald pas de deux, freshly plucked from an imperial orifice we will decline, on grounds of taste, to identify. At the very end we link, glancingly, to a Bloomberg article on the widening scope of Mr. Fitzgerald's investigation, from which our esteemed host Mr. Doolittle has already extracted the two most entertaining paragraphs:
In an interview yesterday, Wilson said that once the criminal questions are settled, he and his wife may file a civil lawsuit against Bush, Cheney and others seeking damages for the alleged harm done to Plame's career.

If they do so, the current state of the law makes it likely that the suit will be allowed to proceed -- and Bush and Cheney will face questioning under oath -- while they are in office. The reason for that is a unanimous 1997 U.S. Supreme Court decision ruling that Paula Jones' sexual harassment suit against then-President Bill Clinton could go forward immediately, a decision that was hailed by conservatives at the time.
Enough about Roe v. Wade. Where does Harriet Miers stand on this?

N.B.: We hasten to reassure our loyal readers that our affiliation with Bad Attitudes will have no effect on the quantity of posts at King of Zembla. As for quality, well, we have no place to go but up.
