The Federal Eye on the week in politics and the federal snow days

By Ed O'Keefe

Is bipartisanship dead in Washington? And how much make up work will the federal government have after four snow days?

Those were the topics du jour when The Federal Eye guested on Friday's "Top Line" show at, co-hosted by the indefatigable "The Note" author Rick Klein and ABC News Political Director David Chalian.

The pair recap the poltical news of the day and yours truly joins the conversation around 4:30 in the video clip above.

I'm so sick of whiny federal employees complaining that they didn't get yet another paid day off today. Be thankful that you have a job and quit complaining. This is why we need to get rid of tenure and make all federal employees at-will.

For those who survived the Metro today, make up work will take about a week and everything will be back to normal.

Getting over being raped by WMATA and OPM is a different problem.

First of all..since before last week when the weather folks were warning of the BIG storm..I knew we would potentially be off for a few properly planned. I tied up all of my loose strings at work, got my contracts all taken care of, etc. I also checked my emails from home. I dont have any catch up to do when I get back. I know I am the odd person out with it,but these series of storms were no surprise. My husband has had to work during this last bit of snow and he would tell me that DC streets are just not going to be able to handle the traffic on Friday. So...I took a day of vacation on Friday because I knew the commute was going to be awful. I didnt want to have a traffic snafu in not being able to get my son from daycare before it decided I would get sunlight and fresh air..have a non-child day to myself and loved every bit of it. I dont apologize for that because that it is my reward for good planning for work that I wont have but a days worth of email to check and very little catch up other than face time.

All federal employees have tenure? Who the hell is stupid enough to think that?

Good grief, you would think people would get the slightest clue before criticizing that subject
