You probably haven't heard the words "Kitty Kelly" and "The New Republic" in the same sentence since the last time you told someone "I was going to read The New Republic, but that Kitty Kelly story in Vanity Fair was more fun." Yet last week, The New Republic ran a story BY Kitty Kelly. As its cover. It's the first published interview with Mrs. Duke Cunningham, who, while distancing herself from Dukestir, is amusingly delusional about her 15 mintues in the public spotlight:

"I identify with women like Jacqueline Kennedy and Princess Diana," Nancy said. "They, too, had husbands like that."

There's nothing spectacularly new in the piece, but there's plenty that's spectacularly laughable.
