Sightings…

Spotted: WaPo’s Wemple Plays Ball (Dangerously)

WaPo‘s always good-natured and almost never mean Erik Wemple was spotted over the weekend on a block off Dupont Circle playing catch and speaking fluent Spanish with his son. The Erik Wemple Blog, as he prefers to refer to himself (relentlessly), wore dark shorts and a red top. He and his son nearly took out some nearby windows of cars and soon decided a park was a better place to play catch rather than a city street lined with parked cars.

We fully blame the missed catches on the Erik Wemple Blog.

Spotted: Charlie Hurt at the Café

Ahhh…life really is a fishbowl, isn’t it?

The Drudge Report and TWT‘s Charlie Hurt was spotted at Le Quotidien at Eastern Market today. He was “just shuffling through,” said our tipster. His hands were full of papers and he, of course, had his computer. He was dressed in khaki shorts, a maroon polo shirt and tennis shoes. “He looked hurried,” our source added.

Spotted: Rep. Mark Takano at Dupont Bar

Who says lawmakers can’t have fun during the grueling work week? Rep. Mark Takano, an openly gay Democratic congressman representing Riverside, Calif., was spotted at JR’s Bar & Grill Monday night, which happened to be “Showtunes Night.” JR’s is a well-known gay bar on 17th Street in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington. The congressman did not sing. He was not holding a drink, though he was seen buying one for a 20-something guy. He stood around until 12:45 a.m. and then bolted.

FP’s Ex-Hounshell to Politico?

FP‘s ex-Managing Editor Blake Hounshell, who announced that he was leaving the magazine Friday after six and a half years, was spotted across the river at Politico that very same day.

We’re not PI’s, but rumors are swirling that he could secure a job at Politico and follow in the footsteps of Susan Glasser, who also recently resigned from FP as Editor-in-Chief.

Spotted: David Gregory at Neiman Marcus

A reader writes in…

“Saw David Gregory at Neiman Marcus Wednesday afternoon. He was standing by himself (he’s as tall as a giraffe) in the jewelry department and not talking to anyone.”

Gregory is, of course, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” We reached out to him to see if he had a comment on the matter.

Daily Caller Editor Poses With Chris Hayes

As pre-White House Correspondents’ Dinner cocktail parties at the Washington Hilton came to a close Saturday, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes (a.k.a. Hazy) was spotted mingling in National Review‘s private room with other stragglers, including The Daily Caller‘s Senior Online Editor Vince Coglianese.

After introducing himself to Hayes, Coglianese asked if the two could pose for a picture together. “You’re not going to deface it or anything, are you?” asked Hayes, half joking. Coglianese assured him he would not and the photo was shot.

“We just spoke for a second,” Coglianese told FishbowlDC. “I asked him to take a picture with me so I could send it to [Daily Caller TV reporter] Jeff Poor. He obliged and asked that I extend to Poor this message: “Auburn sucks.”

Poor, an Auburn University graduate, has written critically of Hayes in the past.

Eleanor Clift Drives a Prius

After The Atlantic‘s Women of Washington brunch Saturday featuring MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift was spotted outside the Ritz Carlton waiting on valet to retrieve her car.

After chatting a few minutes with a chipper fan who recognized her, a blue Prius pulled up that belonged to Clift. “Of course she drives a Prius,” I said. “She’s socially responsible!” remarked her fan.

Spotted: MSNBC’s Matthews, Wife, Son in Boston

Bombing? What bombing? There are people to see, jackets to buy. MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews was spotted on Newbury Street in Boston over the weekend. They were seen with what looked to be their son at the Barbour store. The guy who looked to be their son was trying on jackets. Our spy remarked, “Not surprisingly, the Matthews clan looked right at home at the preppiest store in America’s preppiest city.”

The store sells “lifestyle” and “heritage” clothing styles for men and women and is located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. Men’s jackets run anywhere from $399 to $449.  The Matthewses have two sons, Thomas and Michael.

 

SIGHTING: Reporter Spots Self at Party

This is too much!

In Wednesday’s Politico Playbook, Mike Allen writes about the MSNBC Joe Scarborough‘s surprise 50th birthday party. Allen, a “Morning Joe” regular, posted a variety of pictures, including one of NBC’s David Gregory in the moonlight, he wrote about “Le Menu” — which included mini burgers and mini pastrami bites — and then he concluded with a big mass of sightings, which included none other than himself.
