That would be me on the left. Long story short, I was interning at the airport this summer and I was on my daily trek to Cosi when I spot none other than Monsieur Lieberman shaking hands with the employees of Dunkin Donuts. As Mischa said “if you put ‘ballin’ in urbandictionary, you get a picture of Joe Lieberman smiling next to a black service-sector employee at an airport’. To clarify: this quote made a lot more sense in context on gchat and Mischa is in fact not a hipster racist.
His daughter (granddaughter?) seemed annoyed to be asked to take yet another picture, but obliged nonetheless. In retrospect, he is taller than one might expect. And no, that is not a bathrobe–that’s the ‘hoodie alternative’ I got at J.Crew.
Later that same week I met Mike Gravel in Shirlington. It is a point of bitterness for me that all the other interns I know got to shake hands with Barack this summer and all I was the rejects of the Democratic party.
Its ok, all I have to do is look into the eyes of young Howard Dean and know the DNC still loves me.
