The Earth Stops: Mike Allen Takes a Day Off



Good for Politico Playbook writer Mike Allen! It’s apparently been 990 long arduous days since he has taken a day off. This includes weekends and holidays. We fully blame that on Jim VandeHei, who has a relentless aversion to Allen sleeping. But for today Allen has disappeared and ABC’s Jonathan Karl is filling in as a “Guest Playbooker.” Karl has filled in for Allen on this front before. Strikes us as a little odd that Politico didn’t find an in-house substitute for Allen. As you can see from this picture, Allen really never takes a day off, not even when he has a bandage on his nose.

Enjoy the day, Mike. And we hope you really are fishing!
