 About the Book 

The great thing about Washington is no matter how many elections you lose, how many times youre indicted, how many scandals youve been tainted by, well, the great thing is you can always eat lunch in that town again. What keeps the permanentMoreThe great thing about Washington is no matter how many elections you lose, how many times youre indicted, how many scandals youve been tainted by, well, the great thing is you can always eat lunch in that town again. What keeps the permanent government spinning on its carousel is the freedom of shamelessness, and that mothers milk of politics, cash. In Mark Leibovich’s remarkable look at the way things really work in D.C., a funeral for a beloved television star becomes the perfect networking platform, a disgraced political aide can emerge with more power than his boss, campaign losers befriend their vanquishers (and make more money than ever!), conflict of interest is a term lost in translation, political reporters are fetishized and worshipped for their ability to get ones name in print, and, well - were all really friends, arent we? What Julia Phillips did for Hollywood, Timothy Crouse did for journalists, and Michael Lewis did for Wall Street, Mark Leibovich does for our nations capital.
