HOH Word of the Week: Full Ginsburg

“The impressive-for-Washington feat of a cable chatterer appearing on all five Sunday talk shows in one day. Monica Lewinsky’s then lawyer William Ginsburg appeared the same February 1998 Sunday on ABC’s This Week, Fox News Sunday, CBS’s Face the Nation, Meet the Press and Late Edition on CNN. Like a perfect game in baseball, the Full Ginsburg is a rare feat in punditry; fewer than two dozen people have accomplished it. Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio pulled off a version of this in 2013 that also included appearances on Univision and Telemundo, something quickly dubbed the ‘Full Marco.'”  

From “Dog Whistles, Walk-Backs & Washington Handshakes, Decoding the Jardon, Slang, and Bluster of American Political Speech by Chuck McCutcheon and David Mark
