Leaving This Town

I followed Sam Youngman for only a short while on the twitter. I found him to be pretty much a pompous ass promoting bad policy. As the kids say, ain't nobody got time for that. So guess I missed his metamorphosis because I was surprised his longish goodbye note to DC was so self-aware. It's Politico, so be warned, but it's worth reading in full.

Not even going to excerpt it, except this one line which captures the theme:
In Washington, a divided America is good for business.
And good for the insiders who run the place. Rare to find a insider that would say that out loud, but then again Youngman is now on the outside having successfully escaped the toxic bubble. Hope a few of his former colleagues take his advice.
