Adam Smith

Yes, that Adam Smith! Glenn Greeenwald had a great post today about the Beltway Establishment and how Smith pegged them 130 years before hand. It's a great read. How Smith was able to forsee Tweety's(that is Chris Matthews for anyone that doesn't know) obsession with Aqua Velva and Fred Thompson(or his other obsession, with the Clenis), I don't know. Or Teh Big Punkin's(Tim Russert) smarmy sanctimoniousness. Or the insane drivel of a Charles Krauthammer(aka Charles Kraphammer). These people have been wrong time and time again, yet haven't been banished to Siberia. Why? They aren't trustworthy. They are a festering sore upon the body politic.
