In defense of Caligula
At the blog where Kevin Drum used to post his moderate declarations, Hilzoy claims that the Department of the Interior scandal represents “Caligula-like corruption and debauchery.” I’m pretty sure that, in reality, if Caligula had been part of the festivities at the Minerals Management Service, he would’ve been bored beyond belief. Where are the massive orgies? Where’s the child molestation? Where’s the wanton murder? Caligula makes these bureaucrats look like nothing more than a bunch of 80s Wall Street wannabes.
