Oh that is nice, President B. Barry Bamz is making empty gestures of politeness and civility at what’s his name, Loser Guy, and having him over to the White House for lunch.

Michael Steele’s Top Priority: Sandwich Time

“Facing questions about whether he can win a second term as chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele boasted Friday that he has re-shaped the committee from an unwieldy top-down behemoth into an agile grassroots organization with a record of success.” Somebody finally told Michael Steele he should just say he’s done a good job, even if he’s actually fucking everything up. Also Michael Steele and the entire crowd wore red “FIRE PELOSI!” hats, a message Steele announced the GOP will be promoting in a “bus tour,” so it sounds like this was a fun time. But Michael Steele isn’t holding out hope for another term as RNC chair, because he’s too busy concentrating on trying to get that sandwich made the way he likes it.

Potbelly Sandwich Works Has Gone Rogue

We do not question the quality of the Potbelly sandwich or the cookies and fine shakes, for that matter. But there have been some changes at Potbelly Sandwich Works. Big changes. Changes that may take some getting used to. The sandwiches, they’ve gotten bigger. And the rest of the menu makes no sense at all. Read more on Potbelly Sandwich Works Has Gone Rogue…

All-You-Can-Drink Mimosas & Breakfast Pizza

There are many fine upscale pizza places in D.C. , but only one of them has an all-you-can-drink mimosa deal for only $9 at brunch. Sure, the “champagne” is Andre — the Two-Buck-Chuck of sparkling wine — reminiscent of sorority formals where that stuff flowed like water. Unlike sorority formals, however, RedRocks Firebrick Pizzeria in Columbia Heights also serves exceptional pizza. Read more on All-You-Can-Drink Mimosas & Breakfast Pizza…

Bush and Bono

My Irish half has been aching all week to end my troubles with Bono. I fucked up my first day on the job by assuming rumors of his Good Friday Agreement with Rick Santorum were true. (They were not. Also, that whole “intelligent design theory” as scooped by Newsmax? Less than reliable. You heard it here first.) Read more on Bush and Bono…
