HBO’S REALITY SHOW

Matt Walsh of HBO’s“Veep” — TV’s smartest show about the stupid people in public service — has been told by Beltway insiders it’s a dead solid perfect view of how messed-up backroom Washington really is. “I’ve been told by more than one D.C. political player that I’m just like a lot of real-life idiots in government,” says the man who plays the hapless communications director for Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the worst-ever commander-in-chief who isn’t actually real.
