Arianna Huffington is blogging? OMG!!!!

Much is being made about the new, star studded, lefty group blog about to be launched by the histrionic pundit Arianna. She's lined up big names, big money, free office space... Look out Drudge!

Roger L. Simon reports hearing Arianna speak at a Blogging Panel at the L.A. Times Book Festival:
The subject was, you will be stunned to learn, the War in Iraq, although the panel's title was "Brave New World: Monopoly, Media and the Right to Know." [...] Arianna stepped forward in high dudgeon to complain that some in the media were pronouncing the war a success after the Iraqi elections. No one had been saying this war was about democracy before it was fought, she insisted. At that point I walked out.
I'm with Roger on this one. Anyone still insisting that WMDs were the sum total of reasons to depose Saddam is worthy of a walk out.

1998? Is that before... or after 2005?
