Reasons Not to Move to D.C. (Are Also Reasons to Move to D.C.?)

THE OTHER MICHAEL STEELPolitico fulfills all our dreams by publishing a list of their fave top 50 D.C. "biggest party animals." It is like Animal House up in there! Look out for Michael Steel (the white one, with no "e" on the end of "Steel"): "By day, he's a stern spokesman for House Minority Leader John Boehner with an affinity for cashmere. By night, he's a fun-loving guy who's always up for sprinkling his dry sense of humor on a good cocktail party." Looking on the bright side to all this, there are apparently many openings on the social circuit for people with pulses and cardigans.

Of course, as the spokesman for the biggest Republican in the House, he’s bound to get confused with another huge Republican on Capitol Hill: Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele. “I usually say it’s easy to tell us apart because he’s taller,” Steel says. He also helpfully points out that his name is spelled differently: “Steel no ‘e’.”

In my imagination, he actually does not know Steele is black, and also his roommate worked on Biden's 1988 presidential campaign.

This is the one who was in the Bangles, right?

Gah! Its shit like this that makes everyone who doesn't live in DC (especially those of you who live in NYC) think that we're all a bunch of tragic, power-hungry, soul-sucking escapees from the south. DC "parties hard" because our jobs suck and our fellow drinkers are ugly. Alcohol lessens both of those harsh realities.
There is an awesome social scene and drinking scene here, and it has nothing to do with "charming hostesses", seersucker suits, or any of the horrific bars in Georgetown.
Then again, if Politico started writing about the Argonaut, I suppose we'd be fucked in an entirely different way.

Don't you dare badmouth seersucker.

That man takes bland to the level of art.

This guy bears a faint resemblance to Nick Denton. Like, Nick's preppy Yank second cousin with unflattering hair.

It's sort of creeping me out.
