09/11/2005 Archived Entry: "Now there'll even be SWAT teams for spin"

YOU KNOW YOUR COUNTRY HAS BECOME TOO MILITARIZED when its new international spin doctor speaks in terms of sending in SWAT teams to control information. (Sorry: Washington Post link requires either registration or Bugmenot.)

And fear not. There was NO problem with federal response to Hurricane Katrina. The sole problem was lack of "message discipline." (Ah yes. Just like the Soviet Union failed to succeed solely because of "wreckers" and "saboteurs.")

(Thank you F42 for reminding me that no matter how crazy I think the U.S. government is, it's always actually much, much, much crazier -- and more dangerously so.)
