"The consciousness of good intentions disdains ambiguity. I shall not, however, multiply professions on this head. My motives must remain in the depository of my own breast. My arguments will be open to all, and may be judged of by all. They shall at least be offered in a spirit which will not disgrace the cause of truth."
-'Publius' The Federalist No. 1
This is the third edition of the best the blogosphere had to offer in the week that was September 18 - 24, 2005:
As much as liberals blame President Bush for Hurricane Katrina, at least this gentleman put some thought into his conspiracy theory. Of course, I reference Scott Stevens, the Idaho Weatherman who believes "the Yakuza Mafia used a Russian-made electromagnetic generator to cause Hurricane Katrina in a bid to avenge the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima." As this story observed by Euphoric Reality illustrates, he is still the only person to lend himself any credence whatsoever.
While I was enthralled with covering Hurricane Rita, other blogs such as A Conservative's Cornercovered the John Roberts confirmation by the Senate Judciary Committee. Needless to say there was much in the ways of pontification and "meatless rhetoric," yet in the end Judge John Roberts was confirmed and will now move to the full Senate for a vote.
