Palm Monday

Friday, May 09, 2014


To start his journey, Bob goes to the iconic Palm Restaurant, where DC A-listers go to see and be seen. There he meets with his guide Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine and author of "This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America's Gilded Capital." Over one very expensive lobster, Mark prepares Bob for the ways of Washington.

Earth Shattering: hardly. This could have been very revealing before Leibovitch's book or before Iraq War spin rodeo. Anyway, thanks for stating the obvious that the DC's Media Universe wears no clothes. It actually reminds me of descriptions of courtiers by contemporaries of 18th century's French court. Welcome to a new reality of media feudalism. As far as the quote I think Abramoff got it best, short and sweet: This is business.

What was that song in the intro montage? Anyone?
