Quickly navigate Morning Reading List:
Lake Elmo, Minn.: Would you like to respond to the emerging controversy involving Washington Post National Political Reporter Shailagh Murray and yourself? You wrote that during Ted Stevens‘ farewell to the senate speech that Ms Murray was ‘crying like a baby.’ When confronted last week with your observation Ms Murray replied — and I quote — ‘That is SO NOT TRUE.’ Concerning her ‘TRUE’ feelings towards Stevens, Murray went on to insist that ‘Money doesn’t impress me so I could care less.’ Over and above what this comment might suggest about Ms. Murray’s personal life, since you referred to yourself as getting “a bit misty eyed” over Stevens’ speech, was Murray obliquely suggesting that you are a person impressed by ‘Money?’
Dana Milbank: An excellent question. Possibly my eyes were so misty that I thought Shailagh was crying but in fact she was having an allergy problem. In any event, I now weep openly for the loss of Ted Stevens and his shiatsu massage lounger.
New York : Senator Chris Matthews. Chief of Staff, Dana Milbank? Has a ring to it, huh?
Dana Milbank: The Washington Sketch wishes to go on the record emphatically in support of a Chris Matthews Senate campaign in Pennsylvania. Also a Terry McAuliffe gubernatorial campaign in Virginia. And a Hank Williams Jr. Senate campaign in Tennessee. That is my list for Santa.
