Blogging Notes

Miscellaneous notes about blogs and bloggers…

ProfessorBainbridge has been my #1 blogger of choice on the Supreme Court nominations. Today he’s got an interesting debate going with David Limbaugh over the question: Does the Constitution require the Senate to reject Supreme Court nominees only over questions of character and competence, or may the Senate reject a nominee for any reason — or no reason — as it chooses?

Furthering the conversation on Constitutional debates, The Paragraph Farmer is fisking Hugh Hewitt’s fisk of Robert Bork. (Speaking of Hewitt, when did the pro-Miers people start calling themselves “anti-anti-Miers” people?)

I’ve only been reading PostWatch for three days, but it already is a must-read blog for me. My only concern: Given the quantity of quality output Christopher Fotos is putting on that blog, isn’t he in danger of burning out? I’m one who hopes not.

I agree with I Respectfully Dissent that Tucker Carlson did an excellent job handling the ex-White House officemate of Harriet Miers who called critics of the Miers nomination “far right.” It was nice to see someone get called on using that epithet.

Jeff Quinton is requesting honeymoon advice.

Thanks to Political Site of the Day for the recognition Thursday.

Finally, a note about my blogroll policy. If you have a blog and have me on your blogroll and I have not reciprocated, feel free to drop me a note. I might not get to it for a while, but I’ll try to reciprocate. Two caveats: Because this is a think-tank blog, I don’t link to candidate or campaign blogs. And, as I try to keep this blog PG or better, if I click your link and I see breasts, you are out of luck with me unless you have a cooking blog.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
