Sean has a nice catch at Fired Up. Tim Flook, commenting on the FBI investigation into pay-for-play in our state capital:
“It’s the nature of political cycles that periodically the FBI comes in to check under the hood,” Flook said. “My feeling on it is, for the sake of system, I hope nothing comes of it.”
Yup. You have to love how passively Flook frames this – the FBI comes around once in awhile to “check under the hood.” FBI investigations into corruption aren’t like cops walking a beat, or even like a car owner taking the car in for an inspection. The FBI finds evidence of serious wrongdoing, and they act on that evidence.
Let’s remember that Flook was also the genius who thought SCHIP might lead to hyperinflation and doom.
