I know mine was when I spotted this in the Wall Street Journal yesterday:

Former Clinton strategist Mark Penn…is hiring former Bush adviser Karen Hughes…to offer a one-stop crisis-communication and public-affairs shop to corporations caught in front-page headlines or faced with a changing Washington.

We’re living in a kleptocracy, indeed.
