    (April 27, 1968- )
    Columnist for the Washington Post
    Guest contributor for ABC, CNN, and MSNBC
    Author of 'Smash Mouth: Two Years in the Gutter with Al Gore and George W. Bush—Notes from the 2000 Campaign Trail' and 'Tears of a Clown: Glenn Beck and the Tea Bagging of America'
    After George W. Bush won the 2000 US presidential election, advisor Karl Rove asked the Washington Post not to assign him to cover White House news.
    His 2001 pool report which covered a Bush visit to the US Capitol generated controversy within conservative circles.
    According to Milbank, the nickname given to him by the president was 'not printable in a family publication.'
    He drew ire from liberals for a 2008 article which described then-presidential candidate Barack Obama as 'presumptuous.'
    A few days later, Keith Olbermann stated that Milbank would not be allowed back onto his show until he submitted 'a correction or an explanation.'
    He and Washington Post political partner Chris Cillizza were forced to apologize for a video in which, during a discussion of the White House 'Beer Summit,' they chose new brands for a number of people, including 'Mad Bitch Beer' for Hillary Clinton.
    Like Cillizza, and other progressive columnists such as Nate Silver, and Peter Baker, he tends to play the role of a deadpan snarker to the radical right.
    He is essentially Sarah Silverman, Seth MacFarlane, and Kenny Mayne all rolled into one person.
    He was a member of the Progressive Party of the Yale Political Union.
    He and Cillizza have been praised for exposing the hypocrisies of both sides of the political spectrum.
    His book about conservative pundit Glenn Beck received praise for its 'droll, take-no-prisoners account of the nation's most audacious conspiracy-spinner.'
    He has a good sense of humor.
    You probably could describe him as a light-hearted and warmer version of Walter Winchell.
