Why, oh why did I mention cat blogs? There I was, trying to write a witty, satirical blog about religious politics, Art and Sophie Ellis Bextor but my fellow bloggers want to talk about their cats. Pamziewamzie wants us all to know that she has a cat blog. Unfortunately, she no longer has a cat. She does, however have a lot of libertarians telling her about property rights. Meanwhile, Span now has a sheep blog.
If there is one blog that managed to seamlessly integrate politics and cats, it was Shakespeare's Sister. For reasons of its own, the blog has been renamed Shakesville but the cats stay. Of course, it now ineligible for the Blogs Named After Songs By The Smiths blogroll.
While you are grazing at Shakesville, you really must read this tirade by Bill Maher about graduates of Pat Robertson's Regent University, 150 of whom work for the Bush Administration, "most of them young women with very little knowledge of the law, but a very strong sense of doing what they’re told. Like the Manson family, but with cleaner hair." Suddenly, Regent University is no longer proud of its achievement.
As it happens, Research shows that nine out of ten cats prefer the Smiths to any other band.
