I share Megan’s amazement at Arianna Huffington’s entrepreneurial abilities. But, despite our current president’s rock-star appeal, I remain skeptical of this line in the Hollywood Reporter story she linked to earlier:

“There is no better time to do a show about Washington,” [executive producer Greg] Malins said. “It’s such a dynamic place right now, it’s the coolest place in the universe.”

This is either incorrect, and a terrible misjudgment, or correct, and a sign of the apocalypse. Time will tell.
