The Magic Jenny 8. Ball

friendsterApparently dropping the pretense that they are an alternative to the liberal media elite, the NY Sun profiles NY Times reporter Jennifer 8. Lee and discovers that people in D.C. go to parties. Admiration is expressed for how "she’s capable of attracting bigwigs from the press-politics-interest group trifecta," and from across the ideological spectrum. Guests include "Times managing editor Jill Abramson, anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist, New Yorker writer Katherine Boo, MoveOn.org organizing director Zack Exley, [and] columnist Harold Meyerson." Lee's friends express awe at her attitude: "[Lee said] 'The marginal benefit of the people I get to help is so much more than the marginal cost to me.' I thought, 'Not everyone would think of it that way.'" Right. Only the sociopaths.


Marvels another friend, "There’s some mysterious quality about Jenny Lee that causes people to show up." Of course. In D.C., we call this quality "free liquor," and it has bipartisan appeal. (Just try to keep Norquist away from the scotch and he'll tattoo his Blahniks down your back.) And, really, how fucking incredible is it that a Harvard grad has great connections? We think someone at the Sun's D.C. bureau is angling for an invite. . .

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
