You know they’re getting a little too personal. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t have a minor heart attack reading those “grabby” subject lines from the campaign, before realizing that they’re not from a guy we met at a bar last night.

Why do Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Julian Castro and, yes, even Michelle, send us these vaguely headed emails that are both too vague and way too personal at the same time?
What makes old people cynical is listening to the exact same lies being propagated year after year—and seeing them be just as effective as they ever were.

It would almost seem that the stars had finally aligned. After weeks of stalled talks and contentious meetings between House Republicans and Democrats that escalated into a public spat between Speaker John Boehner and President Obama, a bill finally made it through the House and into the Senate, where it was speedily approved Tuesday morning Read More
The fireworks have died down (hope you enjoyed the show, Jersey … better luck next year, Brooklyn and Queens) and all that’s left of this year’s patriotic festivities are the tiny flags littering the West Side Highway, the distended abdomens of the contestants in Nathan’s annual hot dog-eating contest and the sobering knowledge that, according to Read More
Vice President Joe Biden is slated to spend this afternoon in New York City, heading to an event for the Democratic National Committee and then a fundraiser for east side Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney in two separate events.
The Maloney event at The Sheraton is in honor of her birthday–which was, in fact, February 19–and guests Read More
The Kirsten Gillibrand for Senate campaign sent out an email to supporters this morning from Vice-President Joe Biden urging them to donate to her campaign.
Writes Biden: “Kirsten is ready to move America forward, but she needs your help to win in November. Will you help her today? You can make a difference! A crucial Read More
East Hampton Confidential
Matt Agudo’s habitual base of operations is the Starbucks in East Hampton. On a recent Saturday morning, he was flipping through a bale of local publications: Dan’s Papers, Hamptons magazine, the New York Post. “That would’ve been the photo there!” he said, pointing to a Page Six snapshot of that tangerine nightmare, Snooki of Jersey Read More
Accidents, Political Puzzles
The Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, is kind of dangerous. He seems to leave a path of minor destruction wherever he goes. The most recent incident occurred this morning at a Long Island air field. Air Force Two was taking off from Gabreski Airport when the jet wash from Read More
