Heather Bare, RIP
UPDATE: Title changed from The Laughing Wolf's name for her ("my Bonnie, Bonnie Heather") to what I gather was her proper name.

Links of the Week - Late and Short Edition
I usually do the link round-up on Fridays, but yesterday I didn't. Here are two to get you through the weekend, and while both are basically right I have a quibble with each.
Victor Davis Hanson writes on the consensus view on Iraq. Saying "no mainstream figure is demanding either an immediate withdrawal from Iraq or an imperial build-up" writes a number of US Senators out of the mainstream, though; several liberal Democrats want to bug out, and I believe John McCain still wants more troops sent in (not that I endorse either view).
And Dave Weigel, joining the elite club of those who've written for both The American Spectator and The American Prospect (the only other club member I can think of is Jeremy Lott), points out the White House's problems recruiting 2006 candidates. He sells Conrad Burns a little short, I think, but otherwise Dave's analysis looks sound. (I don't think the Senate is in real danger of flipping, but that's not what Dave is arguing.)
