    Blogging is not for the faint of heart 

    Ohioblog doesn't often agree with Glenn Reynolds, the Univeristy of Tennessee law professor who runs Instapundit.com, but he can be both clever and forthright. Here's a posting to let everyone know where he stands (hey, at least he knows which means he couldn't live in Ohio):

    ``I want to make the following disclaimer for the benefit of any readers who haven't been paying attention:

    ``1. InstaPundit is not an unbiased news service. It consists entirely of my opinions and such links to factual items as I find interesting. Its whole purpose is as a vehicle for my biases, in fact. It is not unbiased and objective in any fashion, but rather is opinionated and slanted, much like other, more respectable, outlets such as The New York Times and TonyPierce.com.

    ``2. I do, in fact, support the reelection of George W. Bush, for reasons that should be clear to long-term readers. While I'm not overjoyed with Bush (I'd prefer Lieberman/Cheney, or Cheney/Lieberman), I think that electing John F. Kerry at this juncture would be like electing the ugly bastard child of Jimmy Carter and Millard Fillmore -- in 1940. (I could be wrong, of course, and if Kerry should happen to be elected, I fervently hope to be proven so. But that's how it seems to me. I mean, Jesus, just look at the guy.)

    ``3. If this bothers you, please sod off and go read Atrios or Kos.''
