It's going to be a long autumn.

Last week we had a tempest in a teacup over some forged memos regarding Bush's National Guard service. Dan Rather and 60 Minutes got suckered by a mentally unstable former Texas Army National Guard guy, right-wing bloggers jumped all over it, kicked Rather around the schoolyard and took his milk money. One of the more amusing remarks during this mess came from Jonathon Klein, a 60 Minutes executive, who sneered that a blogger was just "a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas writing."

The result was a bunch of pajamas jokes, and this, a True Report of What A-List Political Boggers Actually Wear When They Blog.
