Sara Taylor's "oath To The President"

By and

Via TPMmuckraker, this is a devastating one-minute exchange between Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy and former White House political director Sara Taylor. In a way I think it explains quite a lot about the past six-and-a-half years:

Even one NRO writer says of Taylor's performance today:

It's a total disaster. Leahy is just schooling her. She is dissheveled, inarticulate, bumbling - lots of "uhs" and "ums," and at times answers that appear to open the door to more questions unnecessarily.... Keith Olbermann is going to have a field day with this footage. Could her advisory role have anything to do with the political tin ear the White House has shown throughout its second term?

Ow.
