Anyone who has been watching HBO's Washington comedy "Veep" will be amused by the headline on the New York Times' lead editorial today. Less than 48 hours after Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Co. built their lampoon around the repeated parsing of the very D.C. word "robust," the NYT offers: "Ill-Considered Advice on Syria/President Obama's critics press a more robust approach that is also risky".

Coincidence? Or a swipe at the president's critics?
