Politics as usual?

I’ve spent altogether too much time over the past week or two reading political blogs that speculate on what might be coming soon out of Patrick Fitzgerald‘s office. Some of the speculation may be no more than wishful thinking, so I season it liberally with salt.

But it does strike me that there has been far too much complicity in these matters on the part of the established Washington talking heads. Many of them (Tim Russert, Andrea Mitchell, e.g.) have been personally involved way more than is healthy, and yet you don’t hear them discuss their own roles on their “shows.” What are they hiding?

Anyway, there also seems to be plenty of slime to go around in the higher echelons of our government. Echoes of Watergate. I’m disgusted. If you’re not, too, then you haven’t been paying attention.
