Heard: Martha's Mistake

This intern was working at a North Eastern Member's office and was from the district:

Intern: So, Martha’s Vineyard is on Long Island, right?

LD: Are you serious?

Intern: Yeah, it is, isn’t?

LD: No, it’s not. Martha’s Vineyard is its own separate island. It’s off the coast of Massachusetts.

Intern: But there’s something special about it, right? I mean, like, only the Kennedy’s can go there, right?

LD: No, it’s an island that people live on and anyone can go to, just like most public places in the free world. Go downstairs and get me a Mountain Dew.
