I just glanced over at the television, which is tuned to MSNBC and carrying a press conference by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. It's on the other side of the room and, from a distance, it looked for a moment like Phil Gramm.

Seeing Gramm's face at the White House press office made for a disturbing, if blessedly fleeting, moment. So be aware: It's an easy mistake to make.
