If I thought there was an ounce of shame left in the little fiefdom carved out by Fred Hiatt at The Washington Post, the once-great newspaper now d/b/a, a subsidiary of the educational-testing industry, I would suggest that he unload Jennifer Rubin, who is unaccountably still an employee after being wrong about everything that happened in the year 2012. Having gotten over the shock she undoubtedly received on Monday when Willard Romney was not sworn in as president, Rubin has gone back to work at her usual corner.

Some sort of confederacy of the shrill, the loutish and the incompetent being kept safe from the consequence from their marauding nincompoopery behind a massive shield of money and influence.
Some sort of
And you are not in it.
