Does Washington Need a Take Down?

PBS: Charlie Rose Shoe, July 18, 2013

Charlie Rose interviewed Mark Leibovich, New York Times Magazine Editor, about his new book, This Town: Two Parties, A Funeral– plus plenty of valet parking.  In the conversation about the book about Washington D.C., it was mentioned that the book is a take down.

Take down is a wrestling term to take your opponent down to the mat.  As an idiom it often means to bring some one down a bit when they have become too arrogant or controlling.  As a noun, as above, it has the same meaning.
