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.

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.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":
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!
