Congratulations to us: FishbowlDC has surpassed 12,000 posts since we launched. It’s Mike Tyson‘s birthday. Mike Mukasey and Mike Pence debate a legislative shield for the press. Bye-bye Olssons. Wait: Was Gene Weingarten “fiddling around with history“?!?

A reader tells us, “I just tried to buy my dad a copy of Big Russ and Me for Father’s Day (I know I’m a slacker) on Amazon and it was backordered until July 8.” Andrea Canning and Tony Bancroft get the NYTimes wedding treatment. It was two years ago that Ryan Lizza was named Washington Correspondent of The New Yorker and it was a year ago when the new WH Press Briefing Room was finished. Fran Coombs calls himself a “boomer extraordinaire” and Chris Cillizza raps. It was Erin McPike‘s birthday on Saturday and on Sunday we found our new favorite Newseum “Be A Reporter” video.

That’s Mark PAUSTENBACH slam-dancing to country karaoke, and Paul KANE showing up for a SECOND time, provoking chants of ‘P.K. – M.V.P.’ Meg LITTLE of Glover Park Group and Politico’s Dan REILLY – Generation Y’s Ben and Sally – stayed till latenight.

Jackie KUCINICH’s gift was a bottle of ‘Olde Irish 800.’ And two of these three facts are true: A bottle of Jameson makes a solid microphone (as do two Miller Lite cans, stacked) … Michael Steel reads inTouch magazine … National Review once had the cover line, ‘Buckley on Why Mike Steel Matters Now.’
