At Last, Politico Goes In-House to Find ‘Celebrity’ Playbooker

Funny. When Politico goes outside the confines of its home, the Playbookers are called “guests.” But when they go inside? He’s a celebrity.

Politico‘s Mike Allen has taken a whopping (at least for him) three days of vacation this week from the Playbook prison.  We remind you that he hasn’t taken a day off since August 2009. On day 1 their “guest” was ABC’s Jonathan Karl. On day 2 their “guest” was TIME‘s Michael Crowley. By today, day 3, they brought in the big gun “CELEBRITY PLAYBOOKER” Editor-in-Chief John Harris to tackle the job.

Mike, we hope you’re enjoying your time off and not doing any Playbook consulting, although we think you’re doing a little. We’re glad your bosses finally mustered the confidence to let someone within your workplace sub for you.
