Washington Post Goes in for Self-Parody

In this article the Washington Post's William Arkin maintains that Nancy Pelosi is in the Senate and that the real threat to America is citizens who become too active. This is one of those articles that rubs up so close to the line that you almost believe it's parody, but not quite. This is actually a case of a Post reporter out of his element, observing citizen activism outside the Beltway with condescending bemusement and observing with utter amazement the fact that local media outlets pay attention to it.
