Why Washington D.C. Gossip Sucks

The Washington Examiner’s Nikki Schwab and Jenny Rogers must really love the 90′s. If you take a look at some of their stories for Yeas & Nays this week, they seem to have a one track mind.

First, Rogers lays this story on us about the comedian Sinbad. It’s been YEARS since anyone said that name “Sinbad” without asking the question, “Whatever happened to Sinbad?” Yeas & Nays has the answer for you. The answer is that he — gasp! — went to the Leukemia Ball in D.C. this past weekend and was under-dressed. Just how under-dressed was he? The headline: “Sinbad wears sneakers to Leukemia Ball.” This somehow passes for gossip in Washington.

Keeping with the “I Love the 90′s” theme of Yeas and Nays, Schwab drops two stories on us about rapper Coolio. First, she tells us about a Coolio sighting at the club, Eden. Apparently, they were hosting a “Saved by the 90′s” rave.

But, Schwab, so awed by the rapper, brings us yet ANOTHER Coolio story. This one to tell us that his rider involved top shelf liquor and Kentucky Fried Chicken. We, too, have found ourselves full of Grey Goose and McRibs on more than one occasion. But really, who cares?
