AnonymASS Tipster of the Week

Welcome to Summer Superlative backlash. This message came in over the weekend. Our tipster writes, “Where was [TWT's] Kara Rowland in the sexiest thang?  If you;re [sic] gonna have Helen Thomas, why not Barney Frank?”

Dear Anonymous Tipster: Let’s break this down. Kara Rowland, a TWT White House reporter, has been on many of FBDC’s best looking journo lists over the years. There is such a thing as being overexposed no matter what Potomac Flacks blogger Matt Mackowiak says. Furthermore, Dame Helen Thomas is far sexier than Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who, if you read this site regularly, may or may not have recently tooted on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show. Now how is that sexy? More importantly, Frank is not a journalist. With the exception of our Best Press Secretary on Capitol Hill category all contestants are journos or pundits. Nonetheless, we take all comments we receive extremely seriously and thank you for writing in.
