This trial, though it is narrowly about alleged perjury and obstruction of justice, functions like a Rosetta Stone to display so much of what has been wrong with our national establishment so far in this young century. More of those details will emerge - the scandalous coziness with those in authority, the institutional inability to see the world from a point of view that did not fundamentally favor the reigning GOP Washington establishment - and I won't pick apart what's left of our governing elites' remaining credibility in this post. I will say that, in many regards, members of the establishment media have begun to rediscover the storyline.More on the day's voir dire, from David Shuster at MSNBC, from Carol Leonnig and Amy Goldstein at WaPo, and from Matt Apuzzo at AP.
