Good analysis


"George Papadopoulos, once a foreign policy adviser to the president, is indeed a nobody. But this is the entire point of Papadopoulos, who this week pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contact with Russia during the presidential campaign: His marginality is the very thing that made him useful to the campaign, alluring to Moscow, and invaluable to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Richard Nixon, after all, did not send his chief of staff to break into the Democratic National Committee. He sent a team of hapless idiots."

3. When you're in a business meeting, discussing secret strategy, do you stop when

somebody comes in to empty the trash cans? Be honest; even a liberal like me can be a bit blind to the people around me who make my world clean and comfortable. I do smile and say good day, but I wouldn't stop to think "Hey, what if this person is a super-secret-smart-person?"
