Monday Trash

It’s nearly 6 p.m., which means that all the rest of this just gets dumped with the trash, as per normal White House operating procedures:


  • President Bush’s speech tomorrow night may/will dominate the next 36 hours of news coverage, and it appears that surprise surprise, you’ll be able to watch it pretty much everywhere you’d expect to be able to watch it.

  • Wonkette teases The Note over its Ivy League-educated attempts at erudition. It’s a completely unfair characterization considering that only half of the eight authors of today’s Note are Harvardians, and the brainy duo of Lisa Todorovich and David Chalian are Northwestern grads.

  • The Washington Monthly’s staff pleads for Matthew Cooper, and the Newspaper Guild weighs in.

  • Cynthia L. Webb, former author of the Washingtonpost.com’s Filter column, gets the only nod to the paper from the national columnists’ association. Would have been nice if a current columnist won something, wouldn’t it?

  • And, lastly, a Hotline Last Call! plea: “Dear Will Rehnquist: Please hold off on announcing anything until after the long weekend. Love, Washington Press Corps”
