Here, we’ll start: We’re thankful to be in North Carolina for the holidays, where everyone has their own Chik-Fil-A branded, camo truck.
Here’s what some of our fave DC journo peeps are thankful for this holiday season:
Politico’s Mike Allen: “I’m thankful for my POLITICO bosses and colleagues, who inspire me and who are making the most of this amazing season of unlimited opportunity for innovative journalism. I’m grateful to be living in a fascinating city where it’s so easy to connect with friends on the spur of the moment, and where people are so passionate about what they do. I’m very appreciative for the Playbook audience: I learn new things from you — all day, every day.”
The Hill’s Silver Fox Bob Cusack: ”"I am thankful for the First Amendment, our military men and women, political scandals, “Veep,” the Red Zone Channel, and Joyce, my best friend and wife.”
National Journal’s Ben Terris: “I’m thankful for the wackos, the over-achievers and ladder climbers, the passionate advocates for change, the geniuses and the lucky idiots who found themselves with unimaginable power, that make up a cast of characters never boring to write about in DC. And I’m thankful for a kickass wife who is killing it as a jewelry-maker, in case this whole journalism thing doesn’t work out…”
Nikki Schwab of US News: “It’s been a tumultuous year in journalism, so I’m just really thankful to have such a great gig in our field.”
BuzzFeed’s John Stanton: “First off, I’m grateful for my wife Tara and all my friends and family who put up with my particular brand of whiskey soaked insanity. Which is no easy feat, I assure you.”
Also for Kate, Rosie, Evan, Jacob, Chris, Ruby, Benny, Augusta, and all my other BuzzFeed colleagues who make me look like a competent bureau chief and are easily the least in need of a throat punch bunch in the business. And finally, I’m deeply grateful for the memories of KT, Josh, Mike, Grandpa Ed, and everyone else who’s moved on from this mortal coil in the last two years. We still love you all.”
