Façade …

… An Empty Parliament | Peter Hitchens | First Things. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

In my years of wandering its corridors and lobbies, of hanging about for late-night votes and dozing in committee rooms, I came to loathe British politics and to mistrust the special regiment of journalists (far too close to their sources) who write about it. I had hoped for a kingdom of the mind and found a squalid pantry in which greasy, unprincipled deals were made by people who were no better than they ought to be.
Sounds like Congress. Or City Council.
