Atrios is reporting the announcement that Judy Fucking-Miller will be the keynut speaker at the Depends Media launch party. The event will give Ms. Fucking-Miller her long-awaited opportunity to set the record straight on all those lies bloggers were spreading about her during her unfortunate incarceration.

I just hope Roger el-Simon can afford Judy.

Perhaps, in lieu of Ms. Miller's regular fee, Rog could make her a member of the Depends Editorial Board. Certainly Judith is worthy of a seat amongst these worthies:

Pajamas Media today revealed that its editorial board members and contributors include "Instapundit" Glenn Reynolds, one of the world's most-read bloggers; CNBC's Larry Kudlow, blogger and host of "Kudlow & Company"; Michael Barone, blogger and senior writer, U.S. News & World Report; David Corn, blogger, columnist and Washington, D.C. editor for The Nation; and Claudia Rosett, a prize-winning journalist and blogger central to breaking the United Nations' "Oil for Food" controversy.

Other luminaries on Pajamas' current roster of editorial board members include:

Tammy Bruce, an author, former president of the National Organization for Women's Los Angeles chapter, host of "The Tammy Bruce Show," flag-shipped at KABC-AM (Los Angeles) and heard on more than 160 affiliates, and the personality behind

John Podhoretz, a New York Post columnist, Fox News contributor, and blogger for the National Review Online's "The Corner"

Richard Fernandez, a Sydney, Australia-based software developer and author of the widely-read "Belmont Club" blog

Jane Hall, an assistant professor at American University's School of Communication and weekly panelist of Fox News Watch

Dr. Michael Ledeen, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and expert on U.S. foreign policy

Clifford D. May, a veteran news reporter, foreign correspondent and editor at The New York Times, and currently president of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, a policy institute focusing on terrorism

Tim Blair, an Australia-based blogging pioneer and author of "Tim Blair"

Marc Cooper, an award-winning author, journalist, and contributor for the The Nation, and author of "Marc Cooper"

Mark Steyn, a noted, internationally syndicated journalist covering global politics and current affairs

Adam Bellow, a widely-respected Random House editor and son of Nobel Prize-winner Saul Bellow

Kudlow will supply the coke.

For those unable to attend the launch party,

The company's mid-November New York gathering will include, both online and in-person, of some of the most thoughtful, noteworthy industry leaders and influencers in blogging and journalism, and will feature roadmap discussions with Pajamas' founders, panel discussions on blogging, journalism and advertising, as well as addresses by industry luminaries, including Reynolds.

They're gonna need a lot of coke, Larry.

Since el-Simon is changing the name of this illustrious venture, I'd recommend he snap up "" before it's taken.
