All We Want For Christmas Is…?

Let’s face it, most of you are getting coal for Christmas this year -we know we are. But we asked a bunch of local journos and politicos to pretend they weren’t so naughty this year, and tell us what they’re asking Santa for for Christmas. Here are the responses we have so far. We’ll update them as we get more!

CapFile‘s Elizabeth Thorp: “For schools not to close when there’s a micro-dusting of snow, a ticket to the Vanity Fair WHCD party and a speaking role on ‘House of Cards’ Season 3 as the ruthless but brilliant editor of Capitol File.”

TWT‘s John Solomon: “We’ve been working on this new website night and day for the last six weeks, all I want is a solid 8 hours of sleep on Christmas Eve.”

Ron Bonjean: “Hoping for waist band pants from all the Christmas goodies. Also a PS4 or Xbox One is there are any left. And a comprehensive energy policy for today’s America.”

Sara Bonjean: “A strong national defense.”

Politico‘s Patrick Gavin: “I’d take an entry into the 2014 Boston Marathon, the most difficult ticket around.”

Roll Call‘s Abby Livingston: “A new Chi hair straightener. My old one was already on its last leg when it exploded in-use in the Roll Call bathroom as I was getting ready to go out after work in September. Smoke and everything. It’s been a rough – and wavy – autumn for this reporter.”

WJLA’s Kris Van Cleave: “Noise cancelling earbuds, dinner with some of my good friends, and a pony.”
