Remember last year when we thought the summer heat couldn’t be beat. Then came this year. Let’s take a look back at what else happened last summer.

Mad DC Cabbie is BACK

As only the Mad DC Cabbie can explain:

“I guess the the hookers got their Johns, Fred got his fix and I made a few bucks, everyone is happy.”

Only in DC friends.

An oldie but goodie.

In lieu of today’s Roll Call story about staffers recovering from their boss’ scandal, we figured this post was worth reprinting:

We know you press secretaries out there have a lot to deal with. Angry reporters. Policy staffers who think they’re communicators. Aggressive colleagues. Passive aggressive committee staffers. Tickle fights. It’s a rough life. And if you stick around long enough, chances are your boss will be caught in asex scandal. When that happens, the last thing you want to be doing is writing a statement (you’ll be more interested in making sure your resume doesn’t scream “I work for a deviant”…trust us).

So we thought we’d save you all some time, and draft a generic release for that special day. We made it pretty easy for you. Just fill in the holes…which, come to think of it…


And of course, the always insummer vogue intern story.

of their digital communication. Back then, not every staff assistant
was handed a blackberry on their first day in the real world, so she
thought nothing of his lack of emailing after hours. She had met the
staffer through one of his coworkers, who she also dated for a brief
stint, so she thought nothing of it…
