Mark Leibovich signs a deal with Simon & Schuster for a book about how modern Washington has perfected the culture of self-love and celebrity at a time when the rest of the country is feeling increasingly alienated from the place. Editor is Priscilla Painton, the TIME alumnus who edited Karl Rove's memoir. No title yet. Out sometime in 2012.
Hope by then Obama's goose will be slow-basted to a deep-brown dusky hue!!!
