THIS TOWN BY MARK LEIBOVICH PDF

But it misses the point of the era it covers. With devastating wit and insight, without partisanship or ideology, Leibovich chronicles a specific subculture that sees national politics as bipartisan entertainment and lucrative business. He savages the self-important, self-satisfied, ready-for-my-closeup slice of Washington that will be on display Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner. The conventional wisdom that Washington is hopelessly divided happens to be correct. Ever since Republicans took back the House in , Congress has been unable to pass major legislation, even though leaders of both parties claim to favor immigration reform and tax reform and infrastructure spending. Sure, Democratic and Republican operatives can come together to launch lobbying firms, and chat amiably in the Morning Joe green room, but partisan gridlock is real and important.
