Citizens Of The Green Room is a collection of profiles from the renowned political reporter, Mark Leibovich. The writing amazes you. The situations make you shake your head at the ridiculousness of the workings inside the beltway. The politics leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. And Leibovich is there to chronicle it. Let’s hope he keeps this up for a long time.
Two of my favorite quotes:
Whenever Chris Matthews says something he likes, which happens a lot he repeats it often and at volumes suggesting a speaker who feels insufficiently listened to at times.
Like many people who sometimes travel in high-powered circles, I am a complete fraud. I have no idea how I got here. This is an especially familiar condition in Washington, where I live, and where the imposter syndrome is like our psychological common cold.
