The Funny Farm

It's not just the Republican Party that's acting psycho. The Washington Post has fired its best-read Internet columnist; and Charles Krauthammer is as delusional as ever. He would be; he once was a psychiatrist.

Even so, Krauthammer truly belongs on the funny farm that has become the Washington Post. Where else does anyone take seriously foreign policy advice from Paul Wolfowitz? Or, where else -- other than a rubber room -- would you expect to see a newspaper hosting the certifiably insane Glenn Beck?

Those few times we look at the Washington Post these days, all the sympathy we usually feel for the plight of the traditional, dead-tree press just drains right out of us. Under Fred Hiatt's command, the Post has earned its death sentence.
