Sorry for the silence, but I have nothing to say

I’ve been reading the news, but have nothing to add.  The President and his henchmen behave badly (“Nice little country you got here.  It’d be a shame if something bad happened to it”); the Republicans fulminate fruitlessly; the media spins ceaselessly; and sanity flies out the door.

I’ll be back in pundit form tomorrow, but today I suffer from spiritual ennui.
