Cloakroom and Dagger

Back in 1975 or thereabouts, then-U.S. Representative Larry Craig got all up in then-U.S. Representative Tom Harkin's face and promised Tom that a "right wing revolution" would be coming his way very shortly. Maybe he was prescient; Karl Rove, FOX News and radio thugs like Rush Limbaugh certainly made public life uncomfortably bitter for awhile.

Personally, I think Craig was never more than a lightweight, and probably had little, if anything, to do with the pendulum swing to the Right that's just now slogging down in the congealed wake of bloody Iraq, but it was the kind of memorable snarkiness that you don't expect from grownups.

I haven't had so much fun watching a nabob sputter in his own grease since Spiro Agnew. Deeeeelightful.
