    One could go on and on about the scandals and failures of the past six years; to document them all would take . . . well, it would take more than ninety-three fucking days, that's for sure. But you can boil the whole sordid mess down to a few basic concepts. Sloth. Greed. Abuse of power. Hatred of democracy. Government as a cheap backroom deal, finished in time for thirty-six holes of the world's best golf. And brains too stupid to be ashamed of any of it. If we have learned nothing else in the Bush years, it's that this Congress cannot be reformed. The only way to change it is to get rid of it.

    It's dated October 17, 2006. The good news is that you did get rid of it, almost. The bad news is that you're stuck with the bad effects of what they did and failed to do.

    Also, far too many of them managed to hold on to office.

    Folly is fractal: the closer you look at it, the more of it there is. - TNH
