“The Russian government operates for the disproportionate benefit of oligarchs and government elites,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “Russian oligarchs and elites who profit from this corrupt system will no longer be insulated from the consequences of their government’s destabilizing activities.”

From today’s New York Times piece on new American sanctions on Russian rich guys.

Um…I would ask, did Mnuchin say that with a straight face, except I do believe he’s too stupid to grasp the absurdity.

Hey, John Roberts: you’re smart enough to get it, right?
