I have to tell you, I have really enjoyed the writing at the Politico. It's not abrasive, it's not boring, it's good writing for a fair price (free).
I took a glance at this particular piece and found it quite amusing and entertaining. If you are a politician that's in the news a lot and you are facing re-election in 08, you definitely want to save this to your favorite places for future reference, should you get the call.
For the rest of us, it's a good read.
Check it out, when you get the chance. It isn't long.
