BLEEDIN’ POLITICO LOSES ANOTHER REPORTER: What is this, six in the past couple of weeks? Nia-Malika Henderson is also leaving the POLITICO hellsquad operation for the Washington Post. Who will be the new POLITICO black person? Hard to bet against Kenneth Gladney. [FishbowlDC]

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Never has a referring website had such an accurate name.

SayItWithWookies April 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Jayson Blair?

trondant April 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Cheney’s stenographer is still there though, right?

Looy April 8, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Between all the fleeing Politico reporters and Wonkette writers, my head is spinning

gurukalehuru April 8, 2010 at 2:37 pm

They’re leaving quicker than Wonketteers. Is this just the farm league for the MSM?

thefrontpage April 8, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Who has “late 2010″ in the When the Holy Hell Will This Politico Thing Finally Die pool?

Whomever it is, you’re in the lead.

Monsieur Grumpe April 8, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Politico for the WaPo? Ouch.

JMP April 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

While the collapse of Politico, like the Moonie Times before, is fun to watch, what I really hope to see is a Fox meltdown.

Have any of the former writers talked of their reasons for leaving? That dirt should be interesting.

Fox News Light April 8, 2010 at 2:39 pm

Ha, it was my commenting in JMarts blog that got her hired..i was just reminiscing the days were I obsessively checked Politico’s blog for a year during the election…what a excellent use of my time.

Now of course I have Wonkette….time to press F5 right now.

thefrontpage April 8, 2010 at 2:41 pm

Several of the writers who have left have basically said this, “It sucks to work there.”

Aurelio April 8, 2010 at 2:45 pm

[re=551616]thefrontpage[/re]: Thankz. That answers all my questions.

bureaucrap April 8, 2010 at 2:48 pm

They just really need to go in-house at the RNC. That way, all the editorial staff’s (I guess that leaves 2? 3?) stripper expenses will be covered.

x111e7thst April 8, 2010 at 2:58 pm

Maybe that Quatari diplomat who was going to set his shoes on fire could get a job at Politico?
For shits and giggles.

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 8, 2010 at 3:00 pm

Rats leaving a sinking ship . . . for another sinking ship?

doxastic April 8, 2010 at 3:03 pm

We are ALL Kenneth Gladney, and now we will all win the morning.

WadISay April 8, 2010 at 3:10 pm

My money’s on Alan Keyes.

I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO April 8, 2010 at 3:12 pm

Wait wait wait wait WAIT!

At what point did we start calling POLITICO employees, “reporters”?

weejee April 8, 2010 at 3:16 pm

Michael Steele will be da man. There’s no way he can be whipped er blow this ahhh be beaten aw fuck – lose.

queeraselvis v 2.0 April 8, 2010 at 3:20 pm

[re=551616]thefrontpage[/re]: You mean VandeHarris were WRONG?

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 8, 2010 at 3:24 pm

[re=551605]trondant[/re]: Actually, the utterances of Dick Cheney are divined by a blind priestess, who first sucks off the tailpipe of a 1972 El Dorado, and then shoots a lawyer and reads out the will of the Dark Lord by the blood spatters.

As far as I know, Politico has yet to sell the El Dorado.

I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO April 8, 2010 at 3:28 pm

[re=551657]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]: As long as she is scantily clad, nubile, and dances around in a drug induced state paying no attention to the world around her, well, that’s alright with me.

DustBowlBlues April 8, 2010 at 3:36 pm

Politico, WaP0? Who cares. I turned on the teevee machine at 2:00C, by force of habit, and saw Ed Schulz. Blech.

Until they bring back my pretend boyfriend, MSNBC daytime is dead to me.

Oh, the topic: Except for when “my” wonkette makes fun of it, Politico has been dead to me for a long time.

[re=551649]WadISay[/re]: Possibly Alicia Keys? Why not?

That has to be the biggest fucking housecat I’ve ever seen…

Mr Blifil April 9, 2010 at 12:17 am

Actually Kenneth Gladney’s trial goes before a judge this month. Sounds like a niche ripe for filling Wonkett.

LowerdPeninsula April 9, 2010 at 3:59 am

Wait, so Ms. Henderson jumped from the RMS Titanic, Jr. onto the the actual Titanic? Silly black girl; don’t you know that we can’t swim and thus don’t like boats? Plus, you may get your hair wet, allowing which is tantamount to sin in the black community. Get yourself on dry land, girl!
