Sunday morning reading: Dan Balz on the long decline of competence in the federal government, which has accelerated in recent years, and how it got us into the mess we’re in now. Politico has some inside baseball on a key administration appointment. The Times bemoans a lack of leadership and unity at a time of national crisis. And conservative Bill Kristol is interviewed about where the country is now, how we got here and what’s next for Republicans.
