What’s in a Politico Swag Bag?

As parting gifts at last night’s Politico‘s “50 Politicos to Watch” party, guests received little plastic bags with the red Politico emblem on it. Inside was a chocolate chip cookie from NMA, which stands for National Mining Association. We didn’t realize they were known for cookies, but it was pretty good. Other items included an XL T-shirt better suited for NJ Gov. Chris Christie than most average Americans, a glossy POLITICO Magazine filled with stories about the people we’re supposed to watch, and a Verisign computer screen cleaner. There was a seriously long-stringed white balloon attached to the bag. But we let it go for fear of looking like an insane person with a giant balloon walking down 17th St. NW on a balmy evening in downtown Washington.
