Are Politico Playbook’s Birthdays Being Outsourced?

Hey, we know it’s August. Our minds, bodies are on autopilot. But what the hell–are the birthdays in Politico Playbook being compiled in Mumbai?

Last week, Politico’s Mike Allen had an “oopsy” when he wished  Norman Schwarzkopf, who is deceased, a happy birthday. Today, Allen had another “oopsy.” Amazingly, this was also in the birthdays section.

In Monday’s Playbook, Allen gave birthday wishes to “a triple threat of progressive leaders: Ilyse Hogue of NARAL Pro-Choice America, Eddie Vale of American Bride, and Navin Nayak of the League of Conservation Voters.”

We THINK he was wishing a happy birthday to Eddie Vale, vice president-C-4 director for American Bridge, not “American Bride,” but we could be wrong.
