What would Michael Kelly have said about the "Plamegate"? Twelve years ago Kelly wrote, "Washington has become a strange and debased place, the true heart of a national culture in which the distinction between reality and fantasy has been lost, a culture that has produced Oliver Stone as a historian, Joe McGinniss as a biographer, Geraldo Rivera as a journalist, Leonard Jeffries as a geneticist, and Barbara Streisand as an authority on national policy."

Fortunately, Mark Steyn is still with us, and he has a few choice words on the subject.
