First Tweens discussed; Clinton’s loyalist praised; and Romney’s secret addiction revealed (read-this roundup)

Here’s what the Loop is reading this morning:


Loyal pain — Philippe Reines, the Hillary Clinton lackey/spokesman, has taken a lot of heat after Buzzfeed published a profanity-laden e-mail exchange between him and one of their reporters. But Dana Milbank defends Reines and his old-school values, calling him “an unapologetic loyalist in a town that no longer values loyalty.”

Are there 12 steps for that? — We knew that clean-living Mitt Romney had to be hiding something — turns out, it’s a crippling addiction. Ann Romney’s confession about her husband during an appearance last night on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno: “he’s a playaholic.”
