QUOTES of the DAY


Boy Band Special

“No, Jack Kingston, the last two minutes of the basketball is the boring hack-a-Shaq part where my wife says, ‘WHEN IS THIS GAME GONNA END?’” — HuffPost‘s Jason Linkins in a Wednesday tweet. (Who knows what he’s trying to say, but a day without Linkins writing in all caps is like a day without rainbows and puppies. Kingston is a Republican congressman from Georgia. Keep up the good work Linky.)

“Be specific. Not everything I tweet is serious.” — Slate‘s Dave Weigel in a Wednesday tweet responding to an accusation from a fellow tweeter.

“Yup! Just has the night off.” — The Nation‘s Chris Hayes in a Wednesday tweet responding to a question, “Is Keith okay?” (As in MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, for whom Hayes was guest hosting last night on “Countdown.”) But if you really want a quote that epitomizes Hayes, try this one: “As a sustained performance art project that investigates the depthless absurdity of the media’s recursive fascination with itself, it is without peer.” It’s from a story published Wednesday by WCP‘s Moe Tkacik and he is referring to, ahem, not himself but FBDC.

“United’s eastbound 777 cabin about a million times more pleasant than the 757 I flew west on.” — Liberal blogger and Center for American Progress’s Matt Yglesias in a Wednesday tweet.

“Ah, Hannukah. How you taught me the righteousness of wars for oil.” — Wired‘s Spencer Ackerman in a Wednesday tweet.

“@KimKardashian should seriously be ashamed of herself.” — WaPo‘s Ezra Klein in a Nov. 20th tweet (had to mine the trough). The story of shame involves the Kardashian’s new (and agreed, ridiculous) prepaid debit card. Read the Slate story he’s referencing here.
