Say hello to Keith Koffler, editor of D.C.’s new unuathorized White House blog, White House Dossier, which can be viewed here. He has 15 years reporting experience working for Roll Call, National Journal and Congress Daily. His favorite swear word? I’m afraid it’s “Golly.” Koffler, this is f&$*#ng bullsh-t. You’ve gotta come up with a real cuss word next time, please. (On a more pleasant note, nice job on the carbonated beverage answer.)
If you were a carbonated beverage which would you be? Fanta Grape, because it has lots of flavor and color and makes people sick.
How often do you Google yourself? Once a month.
What’s the worst thing youÂ’ve ever said to an editor (or vice versa)? When a spinmeister pushed back in feigned fury on an accurate and justifiable story, an editor said to me: “I can see his point.” To my continuing regret, I caved.
Do you have a favorite word? Tie: Perspicacious and pulchritude. I don’t think I’ve used either in a story.
Who would you rather have dinner with – First Lady Michelle Obama or Bestselling Author and former V.P. candidate Sarah Palin? Sarah Palin, but mostly because I find her more pulchritudinous.
What’s the name of your cell phone ring?
Whatever my son sets it at. Right not it’s on “harp.”
What swear word do you use most often? Golly!
What word or phrase do you overuse? “I’m sorry.” I mean, I’m married, you know?
What TV show do you have to watch? “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
Where do you shop most often for your clothes? JoS. A. Bank’s
Who do you prefer for daytime talk, Dr. Phil, Oprah, Tyra or the women of The View? I haven’t really watched any of them, but Tyra is the most pulchritudinous.
Pick one: Leno, Letterman or Conan? Letterman
If you were trapped on a deserted island, which public official would you want to be trapped with and why? OMG, now that you make me think of it, they’re all so annoying. I guess [Sen.] John McCain, and don’t take that as a political statement. I’d need someone I could wisecrack with, and he lives for it. But [President] Obama would be the most interesting to talk to.
Who is your mentor? Don’t have one, unfortunately.
