SO IT'S COME TO THIS

Did anyone else have an irony overload at the media feeding frenzy at the news that former FBI Deputy Director Mark Felt came out as being "Deep Throat"?

(I mean, aside from all those heavily-maintained female anchors on Fox and MSNBC repeatedly saying the code-name)

Watergate was the last great moment of investigative journalism in DC for the mainstream American press. Today's revelation would have been a lovely time to meditate on that, and see that we have an administration that has engaged in deception and, well, crookery beyond either an office break-in or a blowjob. But even the press' greatest triumph has been relegated to nothing more than a gossip orgy.

That said, Pat Buchanan would have been a lot more fun...

UPDATE: GROOAAAN, Mr Umansky.
