FishbowlDC has learned hat the British invasion of DC is in full swing: The Daily Mail and its world-beating web traffic are looking to hire a new deputy U.S. political editor to work with former Daily Caller executive editor David Martosko. He’s been chatting up a handful of veteran reporters around town, telling them that it’s more of a reporting job than editorial. If you haven’t gotten that lunch invitation yet and you don’t mind using words like “whilst” and “cock-up” in your copy, maybe you should make the first move.

HUGE sigh of relief.

WaPo‘s boy wonder Ezra Klein is back to his fresh-faced self. In late June he grew a goatee that aged him a couple decades.
