Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged[*1] , as snarked by Glenn Reynolds.[*2]

His snark is inspired by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity’s Dan Mitchell, who observes the truth[*3] that what the Obama Administration is doing regarding Obamacare waivers was almost exactly predicted in a passage from Atlas Shrugged.

Yeah, it’s a badly written novel. But it’s a chillingly accurate prophesy of what is happening in the United States right now. The only problem is that There Is No John Galt.

“The boys had friends in Washington.”
