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.

Bloggers are already wildly speculating on whether there is a hidden motive behind the resignation of Proter Goss, presumably having something to do with the current investigation of sex parties at the Watergate. We don't know for sure, but in these circumstances I'm generally inclined to believe the more scandalous interpretation. That's just because it does look so dubious - if I were Porter Goss and actually did want to leave for some totally non-lurid reason, I would probably stay on at this point just to avoid the appearance that I was resigning in some sort of sleazy hookers and bribery scandal. The very fact that Goss left at a time when he had to know his departure would look suspicious contributes to it looking suspicious.
