FRANK LAUGHTER'S LEG WORK ON MIERS' BROUHAHA

Do read this well-researched post at "Common Sense Junction," in which Mr. Laughter has put together a series of links identifying bloggers taking issue with the Miers' nomination -- what certain inveterate President Bush loyalists in the blogosphere term "silly sites" or their authors "knuckleheads" and rank "elitists."

By the way, it's 4:40pm PDT and I'm listening to Hugh Hewitt's radio talk-show program on KRLA on my computer (http://www.krla870.com/) and he's verbally slaying a caller who doesn't support President Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers and for that -- for exercising his right to have a political point of view and to express it on Hugh's talk show -- he's being branded a "Hillary-supporter." It's outrageous and anything but entertaining.

I don't know about you, but when the labelling and ad hominem attacks begin they usually precede a pretty weak argument.
