And so it goes: Reader writes in to complain about "bitchy staff assistant" at George Stephanopoulos talk, says venting is result of unpaid internship. Second reader writes in to defend staffer, dump on interns. Today, another party is heard from:
I almost choked on my coffee today at the interns versus staff fight at the Stephanopoulos sighting. Talk about two groups that deserve each other. Interns living on their parents' money partying in Washington all summer have no right to complain about anything. That said, where does your one erstwhile staffer e-mailer think staffers come from? Oh yeah, working class kids in debt up to their eyeballs out of college can really afford to take a 25K job on the Hill. [If they are willing to go anal, maybe! -- Ed.] There are few creatures on earth lower than the Hill rat living on mommy and daddy's money thinking they are important. Yeah, answering letters from old ladies in tennis shoes for Congressman Good for Nothing who gave you the job because your parents had enough money to donate to a winning campaign and also had enough money to pay your tuition at American after you were too stupid to get into GW or Georgetown. Color me impressed.We're thinking that color belongs in the green family, but you never know.
