Political Junkies Aren’t ‘So Normal’

If you’re a political junkie, it’s good to be reminded that "you’re not normal." For example, if you know who the press secretary is, you are clearly outside the mainstream of America …

Stuart Rothenberg’s recent column in RollCall makes this very point:

"Can you imagine a husband turning to his wife over dinner to comment about the new press secretary?

‘Hey, did you see that White House press briefing this afternoon while you were at work?’

‘Yes,’ says Gertrude, ‘You know, Earl, I haven’t been entirely happy with the president’s decision-making recently, but that Snow pick is great. I think Bush is doing a really good job after all."
