Hilarious exchange just now on CNN. David Gergen was complaining, as David Gergen always does, about partisanship in Washington. If you've worked for Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan and believe in little other than the importance of getting along -- it's probably your most compelling talking point.

Gergen then criticized Mitt Romney for being too partisan -- at a Republican convention. Romney, Gergen compalined, was talking about a "liberal establishment that doesn't exist anymore."

Right.

Republican strategist Alex Castellanos was amused. "If David Gergen thinks there isn't a liberal establishment in Washington it's because he's part of it."
