As Iraq Study Group member Vernon Jordan told the Washington Post, “The good of this report is that civility has been rediscovered.” Or as he noted, “Nobody was storming out of the room, nobody was screaming at anybody,” he said. But how could they, having spent Tuesday night at Jordan’s house “for a celebratory dinner of crab cakes, beef and soufflé”? It’s hard to scream when you’re filled to the gills.
But for sheer unsatirazable decadence, you’d have to have been at the Kennedy Center memorial service for official Washington’s most celebrated glutton, R.W. (“Johnny”) Apple, Jr., late of the New York Times. It all gives new meaning to government (party) waste. As in Rome during its prime, does Washington’s prime real estate now include vomitoriums?
