Oh, how it pains your blogstress to contemplate the Specter of traffic being driven from her erudite site to something called RedState, however, she finds herself driven to taking the high road on a bit of low culture executed rather brilliantly by State author Mark Kilmer, in his review of the Sunday talk shows:

Arlen Specter might have violated his leash law, made when the Senate GOP agreed to let him be Judiciary chairman in January despite strong objections, that he would support the President's nominees. With Judge John Roberts, Specter says that he will make up his mind when the process is complete.

Those of you who remember Specter taking a licking from the values crowd back in January will know what Kilmer is talking about. Specter committed the infamous crime of predicting that an anti-abortion Supreme Court nominee would be unlikely to make it out of committee. We'll see about that, hmm?

The piece that
just won't die

Yesterday's Boston Herald carries this piece, blessedly judgment-neutral.

The Sunday Boston Globe offered this op-ed column from Cathy Young of Reason magazine.
