Apparently the Washington establishment is washing its hands of the GOPs insanity, corruption, and chaos, and pushing for a return to sane (if of course always elitist!) policy. Watch Bob Woodward's brutal series of revelations on the flagship 60 minutes here: the Bush gang is revealed to be constantly lying to the public, totally self-deluded and out of touch, paralyzed by infighting and misplaced loyalty (viz Cheney's famous "gratitude" to his first boss, Rumsfeld), disconnected from the military, etc. Not like that's news to us of course. Certainly this sort of rhetorical fusillade against the Cheney adminstration has not been seen before in such a high profile setting, to my knowledge -- especially not from the author of the hagiographic and enabling Bush at War. Perhaps Woodward has recently started reading this blog.
