QUOTES of the LONG WEEKEND Part II

We’re back with an unusual second edition of quotes. Bear with us while we catch up from the weekend.

Excuses. Excuses.

“It’s hard for me to get interested in things where other dude’s genitalia are involved.” — The Daily Caller‘s TV writer Jeff Poor in a weekend message to me as to why he hadn’t written about Weinergate. Despite’s Poor’s frankly (get it?) poor attitude regarding Weinergate, The Daily Caller has covered the story.

NPR host gets stuck near restroom. Repeatedly.

“Why does United always put me and my wife, with scads of miles, in last row? Think they’ll replace LAVATORY sign w/ SIMONS.” — NPR’s Scott Simon in a weekend tweet.

Howie says he hasn’t drank the Oprah Kool-Aid

“I’m the only one here who’s not on drugs.” — CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Host Howard Kurtz on his Sunday program after two of his guests began gushing about Oprah and admitting their habit. One guest, Baltimore Sun‘s TV and Pop Culture Critic David Zurawik, admitted to drinking the Oprah Kool-Aid during and after he interviewed her. Another acknowledged mainlining Oprah with an IV drip.

Politico journo gets pensive about life

“I’m at the stage in my life when friends are getting dogs. Next they get wives and husbands, then children, right? #alldownhill?” — Politico‘s Byron Tau in a weekend tweet.

Tapper sticks to Memorial Day, eliciting praise from Weiner

“And on a personal note, our family lost my great uncle David Edwin Palmatier in WWII.” — ABC News White House Correspondent Jake Tapper in a Monday tweet. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), even amidst a stressful Weinergate, tweeted a compliment at him, saying, “Excellent Memorial Day feed going on over at @jaketapper.”

Inskeep offers drug warning

“Lahore airpt anncment: sweet woman’s voice w/ sax music: ‘Drug trafficking is a serious offense that carries the death penalty’” — NPR “Morning Edition” Host Steve Inskeep in a weekend tweet.

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“I am in desperate need of a jackfruit bubble drink. Craving solved.” — Metro Weekly Co-Publisher Sean Bugg in a weekend tweet. Astonishingly, Bugg wins this award twice in one day. He apparently found his bubble drink at the Vietnamese eatery Banh Mi DC Sandwich.
