Dan Curry showing there's no friends in politics. At least Democratic Progressive politics. Talk about a shakedown! The Cable Game: More on Anita Dunn--When, exactly, did she start working for Barack Obama?:
Ver-r-r-r-y interesting profile of Anita Dunn, the Fox-bashing White House communications czarina, in The Washington Post today. The WaPo's Jason Horowitz goes through all the usual de rigeur background stuff, which is the usual grist for "Style" section profiles.
