And Another One Bites the Dust

David Lat-recently revealed as the author of Underneath Their Robes, the popular blog covering the federal judiciary-will take over Wonkette. Founder Ann Marie Cox has resigned to pursue the writing of her second novel. It is unknown if Lat will assume another transgendered pseudonymous identity-as he did with UTR-or continue his tradition of ranking otherwise "unsexy" political figures on their looks.

Cox's seminal political blog attained unprecedented fame for its snarky and subversive commentary on DC politics. According to the Washington Post, she will remain on staff as an editor emeritus.

"What can I say? My [butt] is tired from all that sitting," Cox said.

"Dog Days," her first novel, comes out tomorrow, with the predictable buzz and, yes, bad reviews. Her next book, a nonfiction project, will be her take on the next generation of political activists. Riverhead Books has given her a deal in the mid-six-figures; the book will be out in time for the 2008 election.
