The Latest Column: Reality Bites D.C.

What struck me about the White House “gate crashers,” Michaele and Tareq Salahi, was not just their ability to pierce security checkpoints but also a report that Tareq had been spotted around town in a stretch Hummer.

That's my latest column in Politico, which you can read here.
