The plot sickens with anonymous revelations spilling forth from the White House into the New York Times. The author (or authors) of Thursday's mysterious oped report that the President has gone off the rails and is rumbling like a volcano about to explode. That much we knew. But the mystery author goes on to assert that Captain Queeg is so dangerous to the country that a clandestine White House cabal is all that prevents him from acting on his most dangerous impulses. But other more important questions remain to be answered. Are these insiders acting for the good of the country, like Little Hans with his finger in the dyke? Or should they be viewed as enablers, who take credit for policy wins that progressives can only decry?
