Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Contempt’ edition


In the past seven days, we saw a reporter show contempt toward the president of the United States. We saw a congressional committee hold the attorney general of the United States in contempt for not handing over e-mails, despite efforts by the AG to strike a deal. And we saw a baby mama show contempt for the deceased wife of her baby daddy in a tell-all book.

Meanwhile, President Obama saw his poll numbers bounce up and a commerce secretary bounce out. Mitt Romney continued to avoid taking a definitive stand on Obama’s move on illegal immigration. And it was so hot in the nation’s capital this week (as it was in most of the country) that I could have sworn I saw the Devil fanning himself on K Street. If it’s still hot where you are, stay indoors and take the p-Op quiz. Sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
