Those who know me best know I am rarely speechless.

However, this little gem on Politico about the apparent violent death of professional standards at the Washington Post is absolutely astounding.

Wow.

That’s all I can say.

UPDATE, PART DEUX: This bright idea is now dead, according to Politico.

All’s well that ends well.
