As nice as it was to have a day off yesterday for MLK Jr. Day, we should have expected that the AnonymASS tipsters would be out for blood. Today’s ASS writes in:

“Why do you guys hate Politico so much? It’s kinda weird. did they turn you all down for jobs or something? That’s definitely the way it sounds from your writing.”

Dear ASS – While we appreciate the concern for the poor workers of Politico, we can assure you that none of us have applied for jobs at the fine organization.┬áIt’s just in our natural fiber not to kiss ANY media outlet’s ass as we cover them or when we are caught up in the middle of a tormenting Mike Allen MINDMELD. One more thing, ASS, being media critics means that sometimes, we are, critical. Deal with it.
