It’s the dog days of August, and for Washington media it can be a brutal combo of blistering hot, mindless Twittering and boredom. Which, for some (cough! cough! Politico‘s Joe Williams), can spell trouble. If only there wasn’t a presidential election going on. Even so, we have a lull before the conventions begin and everything heats to the point of combustion. Without further ado, it’s time for FishbowlDC’s Summer Superlatives 2012.
Now through Wednesday, August 8th at 12 noon, we’re accepting nominations for our twisted take on high school senior superlatives.
You can nominate yourself, a friend, foe, or frenemy for one of 12 categories (below). Nominations can be submitted via email firstname.lastname@example.org or through our anonymous tips box. Just be sure to include the category, nominee’s name, employer and any info that supports your pick (photo, story, examples, etc).
Each day from Wednesday afternoon to Friday of this week, we’ll announce the nominees and open up voting. Winners will be determined by earning the most votes in a 24-hour period. Happy nominating!
