Keep those birthday announcements coming!
Politico‘s newsroom is downright giddy and reporters, publicists and brass are patting each other on the back today as Playbook author Mike Allen lands himself in the #19 slot of Vanity Fair‘s “The New Establishment & The Powers That Be” list. Last year he rolled in with #39 ranking.
Congratulations to Mikey! Oh, er, may we call you that?
Vanity Fair writes, “Allen lives a famously spartan life—he doesn’t own a house or a car—and usually starts working long before sunrise. But in May the renowned workaholic took his first day off, after having written Playbook for 990 straight days (weekends included).”
Others notables who made the power list: Alec Baldwin (#25), Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezezinski (#20), George Clooney (#17), FNC Prez Roger Ailes (#15), HuffPost-AOL’s Tim Armstrong and Arianna Huffington (#12), Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert (#11), News Corp’s Ruper Murdoch (#3) and Michael Bloomberg (#1).
