Wayne Slater hints at rumors to emerge from book...

Slater teases (link)...
This is going to be a big book. It's not a book that Karl Rove will want people to read. And, curiously, neither will Kay Bailey Hutchison.
If you go to the link provided (link), it will take you to a page that sez...
As a young political geek, Matt Latimer dreamed of one day heading to Washington to work for a conservative president and usher in another Reagan Revolution. With the support of his slightly mortified liberal parents, he tried to do just that -- but his youthful exuberance began to cool as he moved up the rungs of power. On Capitol Hill he worked for a Congressman who “misremembered” basic facts, assisted a U.S. Senator who hid from his own staff, and met another who cowed her male aides into carrying her purse. Finally ensconced in the White House as one of George W. Bush’s chief speechwriters, he soon realized that the post wasn’t at all what he’d envisioned. Less like Aaron Sorkin’s “The West Wing” and more like NBC’s “The Office,” D.C.’s most prestigious address turned out to be a bizarro world in which the major players were in some ways mirror opposites of their public images.
I have heard a lot of things about Kay and her staff over the years, but the purse carrying duties are probably her. I think most people already knew that, although I think it is maybe unfair to call it a purse. It is a bag.

This sounds like a trashy book. Maybe a good beach read?

Good to have you back Wayne.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
