Put Charles Krauthammer on Lithium Immediately!

That tears it. I always thought Charles Krauthammer was clinically insane. Now we have proof. Somebody put him on lithium before he hurts himself:

Media Matters - Krauthammer: Goss was "trying to deal with the jihadists inside" the CIA: From the May 5 edition of Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume, with guest host Jim Angle:

ANGLE: Now, Charles, one of the interesting things here is that Senator [Pat] Roberts [R-KS] was talking about the fact that Goss was essentially rebuilding the CIA after some very difficult years, two tumultuous episodes in which its competency was questioned, and rebuilding the size of the agency.

KRAUTHAMMER: And also trying to deal with the jihadists inside the agency, the people who consider themselves the loyal opposition, which really is the role of Congress, but who oppose administration policy, had been leaking, and had been trying to undermine and obstruct administration initiatives. One of the roles he had adopted, Goss, was to go after these people. He fired Mary McCarthy, who supposedly was the leaker on the secret prison story. And I think there's some -- you know, if you look at this, you could say, "Well, maybe he was defeated by that element in the CIA." From what I've heard, that's not so. And the next -- and his successor's going to be as tough on the leakers as he was...

Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
