Please excuse me, but I’m paid to just write crap

Apparently, in between Broder columns and Palin Op-Eds the Washington Post has just given up trying to live in our reality.

For example,Charles Lane, on Evan Bayh's departure from the Senate:

Quitting the Senate was a no-lose move for the presidentially ambitious Bayh, since he can now crawl away from the political wreckage for a couple of years, plausibly alleging that he tried to steer the party in a different direction -- and then be perfectly positioned to mount a centrist primary challenge to Obama in 2012, depending on circumstances.

Yeah, right Charles, a Democratic primary challenge to Obama from "the right" -- "depending on the circumstances" -- probably the same kind of "circumstances" that could deliver you a Pulitzer Prize.
