Moe Talks

The breakup seemed inevitable.

This morning WCP and Moe Tkacik officially parted ways. WCP brass says she’s going to continue to write for them and they look forward to it. She says, “We haven’t worked out a contract yet, but it’s possible.”

Since shortly after she started in September, Tkacik’s relationship with Washington and the WCP has been somewhat strained. She describes its end as the conclusion of a long-running breakup — she volunteered that she relates more to the Vince Vaughn character, then tried to retract the comment. “Today is the day that someone somewhat impulsively changed their Facebook status update,” she said today over coffee at a cafe. “Will there be a relapse? Maybe if I start drinking heavily again.”

Tkacik, who was coughing heavily during our meeting with her, theorized that perhaps D.C.’s “monastic social life”  led to her recent bout with pneumonia. “Cough! Cough. Ack! Ack.”

She looks forward to a new year.
