What Hath Stephanopoulos Wrought: The Interns Strike Back

For some reason, we're not quite tired of this. Reviewing for those who just tuned in: George Stephanopoulos sighting contains account of "bitchy staff assistant" [BSA]. Colleague of BSA writes to counter notion, insults interns. Non-Hill personage responds with take-down of the whole Hill culture. Hill folks respond en masse, displaying varying degrees of humility. And now: The author of the original account has the final [?] say.


Not sure this is worth anything to you anymore, but I'm the kid who wrote in about the "bitchy staff assistant." I figure I might as well milk by 15 minutes of blog fame on Wonkette as long as it's worth. . .

An open letter from interns:

Sure, 93% of us are stuck-up, clueless, ungrateful bastards living on our parents' paycheck. However, I have gone to public school my whole life, happy hour consists of a 12-pack of PBR in my one-room apartment, and I have never been able to finish a sentence with "...while I was at the Hamptons."

I got the job because I was the geek who volunteered in his Congressman's office after school instead of playing football.

Anyways, I'll spare you the John Edwards commercial. Yes, the saying is true: Interns are worse than cicadas because they come out EVERY summer instead of every 17 years. But I'm still going to stick to my main point: That lady was a huge bitch.

Viva la interns!

On a related note, someone out there took up the Craigslist gauntlet thrown down by the poet behind "An Ode to Interns" and penned "An Ode to Bosses":
You are the worst things

to happen to Washington

Since the 10 cent metro fare increase

(you are even more useless)

They're using "ode" ironically, folks! It's hilarious irony! Now, back to work!

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
