You could use XML-RPC as an API to do this.  Instead of "pulling"  
posts into WP.com, you'd be "pushing" them.

You might want to review WP.com's TOS before doing this, however...  
IANAL and I am not at all involved with WP.com, but they do have this  
prohibition in their TOS [1]:

"the Content is not spam, and does not contain unethical or unwanted  
commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or  
boost the search engine rankings of third party sites"

If the WP.com blog exists only to push traffic to your main blog, you  
might be in violation of that.  Again, IANAL, and am not associated  
with WP.com :-)
