Insider jokes

Bad week for insider hotshots, great week for snide potshots. Rob Rogers applied himself to the Justice Department hiring scandal. Mike Luckovich slammed Alaska’s Ted Stevens from the Senate to the Big House. (How much would a bridge to Alcatraz cost?) And ... wait a minute, is the liberal media conspiracy breaking down? Nate Beeler was just one of many cartoonists to finger a fawning press corps for twisting campaign coverage. Patience, Nate, Obama will stumble soon enough. Word is he’s appointing Dick Cheney to head his veep search committee.
