The Needle: You Came to the Wrong Neighborhood

Pleasantville: At her new Daily Caller home, Betsy Rothstein gives a labored account of a long virtual feud between two D.C. journos, Eli Lake and Mike Elk. The highlights come when Lake says the whole town is laughing at Elk, to which Elk replies: "yeah but with the exception of Mt. Pleasant, I have always laughed at this whole town." Elk lauds Mt. Pleasant again in the feud, when he tells Rothstein that Lake didn't respond to his request to grab a beer at Haydee's. "These folks don’t even have respect for Haydees  - that place has more soul than any place in DC," Elk writes.  "These are just Dupont Circle kind of people if you know what I mean? You get what I am saying Besty [sic].” Mt. Pleasant love at its finest. +3
