¡¿Dónde Está Miguel Allen’s Cabeza?!

Hola Fishbowlers. We know that Politico’s Mike Allen has recently taken some time off. We were told that he was off fishing, but when we got Playbook on Tuesday morning, we were afraid that he might have spent time in a mental institution (you know, for locos). This is how Playbook starts out:

Feliz martes por la mañana desde Los Ángeles, donde Playbook está pasando el día después de un viaje escénico por la ruta 49, creada por la fiebre del oro de antaño, cuyo sobrenombre es la ‘Autopista del Mother Lode’, que incluye el pueblo de Rough and Ready:

Jesús puto a Cristo! ¿Mike Allen perdió su mente puto?!?! We were SO confused as to what the hell was going on. Turns out it was just a complicated ruse to sell ad time to Univision within Playbook. After Allen spends the first THREE graphs writing en español, he lets us in on the secret by asking, “Isn’t it confusing when politics doesn’t take place in your preferred language?” Yes, Papi Chulo, it is genuinely confusing when you write in Spanish.

In closing, we’d just like to say quizás debe han despegado un poco más de tiempo antes de volver corriendo y dedicar la apertura de ‘Playbook’ a un idioma extranjero de puto!

Translation? Um, we better not.
