Morning Oopsy: The Mike Allen Edition

  • SHARES

Isn’t Playbook great? It’s the gift that keeps on giving. The daily newsletter from Politico’s Mike Allen consistently drops news nuggets on his readers, but he’s been known to have a gaffe or 2. In today’s “Birthdays,” Allen wishes a happy 79th birthday to General “Stormin'” Norman Schwarzkopf, who, according to him, ” is 79.”

Actually, Schwarzkopf is no longer with us. He died in December of 2012, so he is NOT 79 years young. So, save yourself the postage and recycle that birthday card you were planning on sending.
