No Surprises

The growing scandal surrounding the actions of the General Services Administration forms an almost perfect Rorschach inkblot test for political ideology.

If you are not surprised at all by the GSA's behaviour because you think it altogether predictable that any group of people charged with spending another group of peoples' money will sooner or later act in just such or at least similar a fashion, then it's probably safe to call yourself a conservative.

If, however, you are surprised by the reports, and manage even to feign a little outrage over them, but then, as a consequence, call first for the creation of yet another agency to oversee the GSA, then you are definitely a liberal.
