Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

How To Build a Losing Team
The list of players cut by the Redskins who are now playing key roles on playoff teams is impressive. It starts with the quarterback: Washington waived Rich Gannon, this years MVP, and also Brad Johnson, who led Tampa Bay to success with 22 TDs against 6 ints and a strong 92.9 rating. But the top QB on the Skins's depth chart is Danny Wuerffel, who in 6 seasons has 12 TDs, 22 picks, 52.6% completions, and an anemic 56.4 rating. Ouch!
Other former Skins who played big roles on playoff teams this season include James Thrash, Brian Mitchell, Shawn Barber, Frank Wycheck, Dana Stubblefield, Derek Smith, and Dave Szott. All were cut rather than traded. (Link from Ben Domenech.)
