But please, for the love of God, change my f@&king email address from FishbowlBetsy@gmail.com to Betsy@mediabistro.com. I have two email accounts exploding with duplicate messages and it is driving me mad. To all you nerdy types out there who are just itching to give me unsolicited advice on forwarding accounts or any other technological garble, don’t. Just use my new address. Thank you for attending to this important matter.

Incest Desk Revisited

Over the weekend Politico‘s Jonathan Martin appeared on NBC’s “MTP” for the roundtable.

Is this your father’s GOP?” Martin asked after host David Gregory flashed a quote on screen on the dichotomy of picking “establishment” candidates such as Mitt Romney and John Huntsman versus someone like Rick Perry.
