The Washington Post has featured two great editorials lately that are not only well written but smart as hell.
First, EJ Dionne, Jr. wrote about "The End of the Bush Era" back on September 13 which explains why we should stick a fork in the Bushies, they're done. Even if it's not altogether true, it's lovely to think about.
And today, Anne Applebaum explains in "Back to Trent Lott's House" how even Republicans rely on the government. How else would they get their building permits approved, their homes rebuilt, and their taxes subsidized?
It's so fun to read good writing (and thinking).
