Quote of the Day

It’s a WaPo kind of day (but not on purpose).

Titanic and BP hearing have reached commonality

“Uh oh. They’re having the bp hearing in the same room where the hearing on the Titanic was held.”
WaPo‘s Dana Milbank in a Tuesday tweet.

Columnist irked by phrase

“Can someone tell me when ‘reached out to’ became an acceptable term for ‘asked’? Because it totally sucks booger meat.”
WaPo columnist Gene Weingarten in a Tuesday tweet.
