News Flash: Policy Staffer Gives Press Secretary the Finger

Which Hill press secretary hasn't had a little bit of friction with their legislative staff colleagues? Policy staffers think that all flacks care about is a quick media hit, while flacks gripe that policy staffers don't make any effort to incorporate media strategy into their plans. Credit at least to House Majority Leader spokesguy Kevin Madden (right) for having a sense of humor about it (courtesy Yays and Nays):
“I walked into our floor operations staff office this morning and said to my colleague there: ‘Hey, you’re going to assure me that there won’t be any more schedule changes and we’re going to sail all the way through to Friday, right?’ The response: Single-finger gesture.” – Kevin Madden, spokesman for House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, in an e-mail to reporters Tuesday
