Foxes and Henhouses

Over at BwD, Dean has a terrific post on how the foxes in the hen house (House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform) are holding hearings to purportedly prove that it was the rooster that ate all those chickens. Also, Franklin Raines, disgraced CEO of Fannie Mae, argues that it wasn't his fault either, the farmer should have stopped him.

Karl Marx, (not Groucho) said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. We seem to have evolved to an era where we get both at once.
