Did you know that WaPo’s Gene Weingarten is a Pulitzer Prize winner? Few people can choke out his name without crowbarring a reference to his literary achievement. But he’s much more than that. He’s a dead ringer for another Gene: Movie Critic Gene Shalit. If you don’t see the resemblance, maybe you’ll spot it in Andy Kaufman alter-ego Tony Clifton. By the way, Gene, we’re so pleased that you’ve decided to become the new Executive V.P. of FishbowlDC’s Fan Club.
