Separated at Birth: College Gingrich

Today we’re matching College Newt Gingrich with The Office’s Dwight Schrute played by Rainn Wilson. We found College Gingrich on The Drudge Report. UPDATE: Indeed the WSJ deserves credit for the photograph in Elizabeth Williamson‘s story on Newt’s college days which is posted on Drudge.

POTUS in Mom Jeans?

THE DEEP END…TIPS FROM THE POOL

Oh man, say it isn’t so.

WSJ‘s Elizabeth Williamson notes in a White House Pool Report sent within the hour that the grey jeans that POTUS is wearing on a six-mile bike ride through a state forest loop on Martha’s Vineyard are rather “mom-like.”

Sasha came first in white top and brown shorts followed closely by flotus in grey sleeveless top and white cropped pants. After a short break came potus in white shirt and his grey jeans looked to your pooler rather mom-like. He was smiling and laughing, said “hi guys” to pool. Next was Malia, also laughing, in blue sleeveless top and shorts. All four in the family wore helmets, unlike last year when potus did not wear a helmet.

Williamson Leaves WaPo for WSJ

From an internal WSJ announcement sent by John Bussey and obtained by FishbowlDC:

    I’m pleased to announce that Elizabeth Williamson is rejoining the Journal as a reporter covering regulation and business lobbying in the Washington bureau. She will report to Senior Editor Joe White.

    For the last four years, Elizabeth has worked at the Washington Post covering government accountability and industry lobbying in Washington. She’s also reported on a range of congressional issues and contributed to the Post’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina, focusing in part on accountability within charitable organizations, such as the Red Cross.

    From 2000 and 2003, Elizabeth worked for the WSJ on the foreign staff, reporting from Warsaw and covering Central Europe. She freelanced for the Wall Street Journal Europe from 1996 to 1999, reporting from the Balkans and Russia, among other locales. Previous to 1996, she worked as a community organizer in Chicago, ran a small ad agency that specialized in communications for non-profits, and worked in public relations for an Illinois health-care company.

    Elizabeth graduated from Marquette University in 1985 with a BA in journalism.

    Please join me in wishing Elizabeth success in her new job.

    Best, John
