King of Snark

Politico leads its assessment of the rising tide of beltway snark with this anecdote:

When Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) mocked the relocation of Uighur ex-detainees to Bermuda, saying on the House floor Tuesday that the former Guantanamo prisoners would now waste away “in MargaUighurville,” it was only a matter of time.

Sure enough, a clip of the quip soon made its way around the Web, ending up late that night with a curtain call on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.”

Snark sells — and Washington is trading in it heavily these days.

Ugh. I think snark just jumped the shark.
