All Hail Wonkette 

Sunday's NY Times included an article on Ana Marie Cox, aka Wonkette, who started her political gossip blog this past January. The site was an immediate hit and has developed a loyal following, myself included. For an example, check out yesterday's entry on Bob Woodward's new book, Plan of Attack, in which Cox references some of the same quotes used by the NY Times, but analyzes the quotes to come up with the following conclusion:

"And you have the skull-pounding mixed metaphors: The rock stars are on horses headed to Pottery Barn? No. Uhm: The Iraqis once redecorated their circus horses in muted Mediterranean tones? Wait. How about: While attempting to ride two rock stars, the president injured his cojones. No wonder things are so fucked up."

Among my favorite Wonkette! items are the Sloganator and the "rough draft" of Bush's statement on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.
