Scalzi wonders

This was just too damn good:

Writing wrt the Bush admin: "any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice". A takeoff on Clarke's Law, of course. The whole piece is well worth your time.

Ah bumped mah haid and thunka yew.

I'm not going to google just so you have to tell me--what is Clark's Law? Is it that recklessness is equivalent to malice, like L. Nizer always said?
Clarke's Law is something like: 'any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic'. Of course, that 'sufficiently' is quite a loophole. If it appeared anywhere in the Constitution we'd all be speaking French or Ebonics by now.
