    Barack & Adrian's buddy-buddy farewell at the end was my favorite part. Even though I know it's not true, I like to imagine that Fenty just called the President-Elect up and was like "Hey man, you hungry? Let's go get some chili dogs."

    Presidents: They're just like us.

  • Fenty I Know What You Didn’t Do Last Summer

    On Sunday's Meet the Press, Fenty said he and Obama discussed affordable housing and the school system while at Ben's Chilli Bowl.

    Sooooooo...exactly how did this conversation go?

    Fenty: "I have hired a chancellor who has never managed a major school system and is more addicted to media attention than I am that really has done much of nothing to improve our schools other than fire a bunch of staff and killed morale throughout the DCPS system. By the way, did you hear that I'm gonna be on Meet the Press tomorrow!!!"

    or

    "Ha, affordable housing, me and OPEFM just denied bids to groups looking to make vacant school buildings into affordable housing and/or charter schools...instead we gave the bids to retail and condo developers. Who do you think is paying for this half-smoke? By the way, did you hear that I'm gonna be on Meet the Press tomorrow!!!"
