Harry Frankfurt's "On Bullshit"
One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share.

So starts a really great piece on the modern tendency to "spin" everything. I really like the conclusion that Eugene Oregon draws in his blog entry of the same title
I think that accurately sums the Bush administration and much of the Republican party - the truth or falsity of their views are completely subservient to their desire to promote their agenda and "get away" with all the bullshit that they spew.

So true.
