John McCaslin today has an amusing nugget about a “well-known politician” who appears to have a slow learning curve:
“One well-known politician in Washington was overheard this week discussing his personal angst regarding a widely heard political commentator in town and his repeated violation of the ‘off-the-record’ rule. ‘Every time I tell him something, and explain that it is “off the record,” I hear it broadcast the next day. And every time I confront him about it, he says: “I know it was off the record, but it was too good not to use.'”
There would seem to be a simple solution to this problem.
