George Packer has a piece in this weekís New Yorker that tells you more about how Washington (and the human species for that matter) actually fits together than anything Iíve read in years. Itís sad and terrifying at the same time.
The full text is behind a pay wall, but a summary is here. Donít be satisfied with this, though, because the devil is in the details. Get hold of the magazine if youíre not a subscriber. It contains another wonderful piece, this one by Jane Mayer and available on line. Itís called ďThe Voter Fraud Myth.Ē The cunning little Bushie behind that myth is pictured below.
