Gossip Roundup: Boomers and Their Sucky Music Edition (and Omarosa!)

Inside the Beltway: Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.): "Politics in general, in a republic like ours, is a substitute for civil war. It is a very important process." [WT]


Heard on the Hill: Former Gore staffer and fired candidate on "The Apprentice," Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth is contemplating a run for Congress or even 1600. However, she inflated her salary and her position with Gore in applying for another government job. Says one former top staffer, "You know the thing that bothers me the most about this is that we had a marvelous, committed, hard-working staff at the White House, and particularly in the VP�s office. Now, because of that stupid TV show, who is the American public going to remember as having been on that staff? Omarosa, who was neither committed nor hard-working, and certainly not marvelous." Omarosa, who is raising money for the DNC, replies, "I�m glad all of this stuff is coming out before I run for office.". . . Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) "We see John Kerry as Ted Kennedy on the South Beach Diet." Note that the latter has been trimmer of late. [Roll Call]

Reliable Source: Cheney accidently refers to Kerry as Bob Kerrey but added, "John Kerry is so forgettable.". . . Michael Powell refers to Tom Sawyer as Huckleberry Finn, forcing an aide to reply, "Chairman Powell sincerely regrets confusing the Mark Twain characters and will make sure that in the future never the twain shall meet. The staffer who's responsible will be whitewashing the commission's fence." [WP]

Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: Clinton on losing weight: "I've been working out four times a week with a German. I haven't been this weight since I was the governor of Arkansas. What you do is you basically start off hard-core - high protein, no carbohydrates - then you go back to carbohydrates. I like it. It's the best thing ever." Jokes Clinton flak, "As President, he reduced the size of government. Now he's reduced the size of himself.". . . Media mogul Jann Wenner: "I'm feeling confident that Kerry can win. If he's a passionate guitar player, God bless him. Look who he likes: Bruce Springsteen! And I was with him at a Stones concert in Boston. What does Bush like? Wayne Newton! That's the choice for our country: Springsteen or Wayne Newton. I know what my choice will be." [NYDN]
