Report: Wonkette to Change Authors

The new law blog at the Wall St. Journal is reporting that Ana Marie Cox will be leaving Wonkette and replaced by David Lat, the male prosecutor who authored Underneath Their Robes pretending to be a female named Article Three Groupie.

If true, count me as underwhelmed and very disappointed. The few times I read Underneath Their Robes, Lat was praising conservative judges to the hilt. His favorite word was "hottie."

As for whether the report is true, while Gawker Media won't confirm, Lat did quit the U.S. Attorney's office last week and said he'll be back blogging in Washington. Today on the UTR, he says he's leaving for a two week vacation in India.

Good luck to Ana Marie, who reportedly is about to begin a national book tour to launch her new book, Dog Days.

On the other hand, the Wall St. Journal law blog is well worth reading and free.

    I'm certain I'll never read anything quite so funny as David Lat leaving his job as US attorney to replace Anna Marie Cox and considering it a promotion.

    I, like all organisms, despise change in my routine. Phooey.
