The most unimportant aspect of Glenn Greenwald's big news
Permit me a moment of total frivolity.
Up to now all of Versailles has been united in marginalizing Glenn Greenwald. Up to now.
Greenwald just went from foul mouth blogger to a possible future source of employment. As Leibovich teaches us, everyone in Versailles is thinking about their next possible gig. No one is so secure that they don't contemplate the possibility that they could be included in the next round of employee buy outs. So now they must consider Greenwald in an entirely new light.
You can be sure that right now everyone is analyzing Greenwald's Twitter account to see who he follows and possible clues as to who might get hired.
Also White House and Defense communications officials are torn as to whether they should smear Omidyar or schmooze him.
This is the least significant aspect of this, but it is going to be pretty funny watch Versailles decide how they are going to respond.
