Yep, David Broder's an idiot, but

it does come in handy now and then. Like now. Broder is a “conservative columnist” for the WaPo. And my dead white cat is a genius in a room full of progressives.

Today’s winner is a column defending Janet Napolitano. Here’s the money quote…

It came as no surprise to anyone who knows her that Napolitano handled the incident and its aftermath with aplomb. In the years I have known her, she has managed every challenge that has come her way with the same calm command that she showed in this instance. If there is anyone in the administration who embodies President Obama’s preference for quiet competence with “no drama,” it is Janet Napolitano.

You really need to read the whole thing. I’m dumbstruck that anybody would pay David to write this drivel. His slide on “the system worked” is pretty much the equivalent of a family member saying that a serial pedophile “liked children”. David, do us all a favor. Find a new profession. Like working with a circus, following the animals.
