The Washington cesspool


Jon Oliver of The Daily Show interviews Mark Leibovich on his new book This Town about the total corruption of Washington. I have not read the book and likely wont but it apparently just confirms with names and stories what most careful observers have long realized: that people in government and the media and the lobbying industry exist solely to serve each other and make money, and all the so-called partisan animosity is just a show put on for the rubes.

Oliver is turning out to be quite a good interviewer.

    Sounds like Prof. Singham is channeling Don Williams. Show put on for the rubes, vintage Don.
