New Blog: JAG Wire

Based on encouragement from Lord High Commissioner Hugh Hewitt, "Whiskey", an active-duty attorney for the Judge Advocate Generals Corps in the Air Force, has begun her own blog, JAG Wire. I heard about it from ol' whats-his-name at Power Line. It's a nicely designed Typepad site, and based on one whole day of blogging, looks to be well-written and insightful as well. (She's got the late-night blogging ritual down pat, so far.) Her first substantive post debunks the current meme on the need for a draft:

So let me get this straight . . . we are going to stop offering incentives to volunteer and instead draft spoiled rich kids just to make sure all classes are represented? Its like some kind of twisted affirmative action program. And why does any of this matter when so many so-called upper class gentlemen (Bill Clinton, Howard Dean, I could go on . . . ) dodged the draft anyway?

Whiskey notes that Chuck Hagel has been hanging out with Charles Rangel too much lately in the same fever swamps. For those of you who think that bipartisanship is an end in itself, this post should easily disabuse you of that notion. Check out JAG Wire when you get the chance.

UPDATE: Whiskey e-mails me to inform me that I initially had her gender incorrect. D'oh! I've updated the pronouns accordingly. This reminds me of my dating days when -- well, never mind, that's a story for another time ...
