Billmon at Whiskey Bar has a comment on the Safavian indictment that might be applied to many of the antics of the Beloved Leader Administration:
…now that I’ve run down what everyone else has reported about Safavian and the the slime trail linking him to Davis, Norquist and Abramoff, I don’t have anything original to add — other than my deeply held suspicion that God has subcontracted the fashioning of reality to the spirits of Mark Twain and Franz Kafka, who are sitting around in heaven like a couple of coked up screenwriters, dreaming up ever more ridiculous characters and swapping increasingly absurd story lines.
No, wait, Twain says, I can top that . . .
Actually, I was thinking Pynchon and Ross Thomas. But you get the point.
