As a general rule I try to avoid the "pox on both houses" school of political equivalencies that allows one to retain their political objectivity by saying both parties' conduct is equally vile. That said, while I tend not to subscribe to that view, I also fully acknowledge that there's plenty of blame to go around for how messed up things have gotten in DC. On that point, veteran Washington Post reporter Robert Kaiser, who retired from the paper last month, offers his take -- borne of a perspective that can only come from several decades in the thick of the capital beat -- on why there really is a pox on both houses.
