Say Hello To Charlie Hurt

The Hill’s Betsy Rothstein profiles the Washington Times’ Charlie Hurt today.

    Hurt, 35, was named Capitol Hill bureau chief earlier this year. He downplays the promotion and compares it to being a “traffic cop.” He has covered Capitol Hill for the Times since 2003. With wild, curly rich brown hair that makes him look like a character from another century, his attire gives him the air of a Ralph Lauren model crossed with a thrift store vagabond.

    Today’s getup is a distressed brown leather vest, a red-and-white gingham button-down shirt and a brown wool blazer, reminiscent of those worn by horse aficionados. He’s wearing stone-colored trousers and shoes equally suitable for cleaning out a barn or treading the marble floors of the Capitol — worn, brown, leather lace-ups.

    Much like his attire, Hurt is complex. He’s restless and fidgety yet charming. He’s elegant yet confused. He’s fuzzy on numbers — such as his age and the year of his college graduation. He promises to forward his resume.
