Attorney General Hangs Portrait of Orwell

Our new Attorney General Mukasey has furnished his new office, complete with a portrait of George Orwell. Just to refresh your memory, Orwell is the author of 1984, the book about the totalitarian government of the future, where all civil liberties have been taken away. Here’s more. Is it time to panic? Just as they hired Steven Colbert to host the White House press dinner, failing to see the irony in Colbert’s schtick, I believe Mukasey fails to see Orwell’s work as the warning it was intended to be, but rather a goal.
