The Zeitgeist Checklist Checklist: Dana May Be Gone, but the Zeitgeist Won’t Check Itself

You’ll just have to trust us on this one. We decided to write this week’s ZEITGEIST CHECKLIST (now, lamentably, not by funnyman Dana Milbank) before reading the WaPo/Slate column.

The Zeitgeist Checklist Checklist: What Washington Read In Last Week’s Newsweek

How, we thought, will we ever catch up on all the news we missed last week, while on our sponsored Happy Hour Tour of the upper Mississippi?

Oh boy! The Dana Milbank has a hot new Slate/WaPo feature (you smell that? It’s synergy)! Every week, he’ll tell you what the Insider Beltway Pundit Gangs of 500 Insiders are talking about at their “cocktail parties.” It’s the Zeigeist Checklist, ripped off wholesale (with permission) from an old City Paper feature, completely identical to a number of features at various newsweeklies. Let’s take a look, shall we? Read more on The Zeitgeist Checklist Checklist: Hopefully Not the First In a Series…
