AnonymASS Tipster of the Week

On Wednesday of last week, a day after Valentine’s Day, a reader wrote in with this hostile reaction to FBDC’s Peter Ogburn‘s take on how Newt and Callista Gingrich‘s spent the holiday. This was, of course, after Newt’s skeevy line to reporters about how he and Callista would spend V-Day.

“RE: Newt ‘Reconnects’ with Callista. Stupid and sophomoric. And has nothing to do with DC media.”

Note to AnonymASS: This is one of those criticisms that drives me crazy for the simple reason that IT MAKES NO SENSE. Well, actually ..ASS, Newt suggested to a gaggle of reporters at a fundraiser in Pasadena, Calif., some of whom are based in Washington, that his V-Day with Callista would involve reconnecting (wink wink). “But I’m not going to…no more details.” (Five more winks.) We know that’s a bell that can’t be unrung, and we apologize for the visual. Fine, hate our writeup, but read this one from Jezebel. Or this one in which the author vomits in the lede. Or this one, in which the writer recalls childhood memories of a Hillary Clinton Barbie Doll and an albino Mr. Potato Head.
