    Perhaps the playbook is written in a language that only McCain understands.

    Their playbook is you're allowed to hurl any feces you want for three years but in the election year you have to dial it back down to something approaching sanity to not scare off the independents.

    Commies? Nope. But the house leader has a few screws loose. Bat guano crazy? Yep.

    Plus, it's the DC Metro for goodness sake. "Never ascribe to malice what can be fully explained by incompetence."

    As far as government-directed cyber sabotage is concerned, there are only three countries I would worry about: the US, China, and Israel.

    I could buy into that except for the last five words. Iranian cyber intelligence is nowhere near sophisticated enough. If you had said China or Russia I might have bought it.

    The DC Metro computers went on the fritz twice yesterday. The central office could not locate any trains on their boards and told all the subway cars to wait in the stations until the problem was fixed. Once I can put down to a glitch. Twice within 12 hours or so???? I wonder if some enterprising country decided to show us that our computer systems are not immune either as a retaliation for Stuxnet.
    It was Milton. The guy in charge of the Metro took his stapler.
