Susan Glasser, who early Thursday morning was named editor of POLITICO, followed up on a memo to staff issued by the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“I want to say that I am honored and totally blown away by the opportunity to become POLITICO’s Editor,” writes Glasser to staff. “There is an inspiring and clear vision for the next stage of POLITICO’s growth, both here in Washington and far far beyond the Beltway in Brussels and elsewhere, and it’s going to be a big and engaging project to support it.”

Lunch at Sidecar at PJ Clarke’s

dc_gal_14_modal_imageWe were in the same neighborhood as Sidecar at PJ Clarke’s this afternoon and thought, ‘Why not? Let’s go see who’s there!’

Lunching: Sam Brown, the Director of the White House Business Council; White House liaison for the U.S. Small Business Administration Diana Doukas; chief speechwriter to Secretary of State John Kerry Stephen Krupin; 1776 co-founder Evan Burfield; Erick Mullen, managing director of Mercury; POLITICO’s Peter Cherukuri; and Kevin Maljik.

Located blocks from the White House and at the corner of K Street and 16th, Sidecar is a private dining room frequented daily by journos lunching with sources, politicos dining with lobbyists, and any combination of the two.

Send us who you saw (or who you were with – fishbowlnick@gmail.com) and expect to see those names on the site as part of our semi-regular Lunch at Sidecar at PJ Clarke’s series.

Morning Chatter

Sarcasm is…

“The only thing more interesting than press coverage of presidential vacations is press coverage of press coverage of presidential vacations.” — The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief James Bennet.

On attacking the media…

“Bad optics for the RNC to block CNN and NBC from sponsoring presidential debates. Attacking the media is a loser’s game.” — Eric Fehrnstrom, former senior advisor to Mitt Romney and Boston-based media strategist and political consultant.

Journo love

“This is the Washington Post’s best season in my memory, much credit to @PostRoz & @bartongellman” – BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith.

And journo lust…

“When women are in the shower, they are COMPLETELY NAKED. Okay, guys, now try to get back to work.” — WaPo‘s Gene Weingarten on quite the Twitter tear over the weekend.

IMPRESSIVE WHEELS? “Thanks @Hertz for my unexpected upgrade in Tucson from a hybrid to this.” — Peter Cherukuri, senior veep, advertising & business development at Politico.

Confessional.

“I just set my alarm for 3:30 a.m. and it’s the most depressing thing ever.” — Katie Kovach, copy and production editor for CQ Roll Call.

“Just watched someone unsuccessfully try to whistle down successive cabs, which perked up my evening.” — Katherine Miller, managing editor of digital for Free Beacon.

It’s just to New Jersey, people, not D.C. 

“Turned in the keys and closed the books on a 12 year NYC run. See you again in 20 years or so, Manhattan, when the kids finish college.” — Politico‘s Ben White.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 6:40 a.m.

Visiting Washington…“Good Morning! I am doing my show out of DC today. I had to escape the rain in Atlanta for just a few days. Crazy….” — CNN’s Carol Costello.

The Observer

“Dude on the metro with a bunch of pistachios in his left pocket. Eats one by one, placing empty shells in right pocket. Gotta have a system.” — Logan Dobson, research analyst at The Tarrance Group, a Republican polling firm.

Uh oh.

“Yeah, so my new cat thinks she’s supposed to shit in the sink.” — FBDC’s and Bill Press Show’s Peter Ogburn.

Travel Bitches

“Boarded flight to LAX half an hour late. Of course. Attendants rushing everyone, like it’s our fault. #unitedsucks” — Digital First Media’s Steve Buttry.

Oh, So You Weren’t Invited to Tammy Haddad’s White House Correspondents’ Garden Brunch?

Never fear. There’s always an alternative. This year, Politico‘s Senior V.P. of Advertising and Business Development Peter Cherukuri, in lieu of waiting around to be invited to Tammy Haddad‘s brunch, has decided to host his own soirée. He’s calling it a “Startup Brunch” and describes it as a “Pre-White House Correspondents’ Dinner Gather of Geeks, Entrepreneurs, Funders, Dreams and Future Mavens.”

He writes,

Friends,

With the White House Correspondent’s Weekend upon us, Peter Cherukuri would like to invite you to a gathering of smart, interesting people who are the next generation of their industry. Whether you have a startup or dreaming up one, please join for a fun brunch event on Saturday. Invitation attached.

WHAT: Startup Brunch

WHERE: 5101 38th Street, NW

WHEN: This Saturday. April 27. 12pm-3pm.

Trouble in Paradise? Politico’s Mark Walters to National Journal

Politico‘s relatively new SVP of Advertising Mark Walters lasted roughly seven months. Last May, Politico snatched him away from CQ Roll Call. Now he’s headed to National Journal. As we recently reported, Politico just hired Peter Cherukuri away from HuffPost to be their new SVP of Advertising. Looks like no love was lost on Walters, even if he did flee for a competitor.

Something smells fishy, no?

Last May, CQ Roll Call took the high road. In a statement, they thanked him for his service. Politico’s Roy Schwartz, meanwhile, wrote the following in an internal memo, in which he gushed about Walters.

“Mark brings 20 years of online and print sales leadership  and his unique background in understanding both the DC and National Influencer market will help our clients develop messaging inside DC and nationally.   Mark will report to me and will head up our world class advertising sales team.” 

A note from NJ‘s Chief Revenue Officer Poppy McDonald.

Politico Meeting Spies Offer Details

Politico‘s new SVP of Advertising and Business Development Peter Cherukuri, comes to the publication with a certain cachet.  Steve Jobs he isn’t.  But in the Washington media bubble, he’s considered a big deal. No doubt there’s pressure on him as Politico is banking on the hope that HuffPost‘s loss is their gain.

Sources inside Politico who attended recent staff meetings in the past few weeks let us in on details of the publication’s expansion plans. Meetings lasted up to 90 minutes. To avoid getting the bosses angry, most spoke on condition of anonymity. Read more
