“Off my plane 5 minutes and a sober stranger has already called me baby. Hello, New Orleans.” — Bloomberg TV‘s Lizzy O’Leary in a Monday tweet.
So wrong (but funny)
“This may be a first: Just fixed a typo that read “public hair” when writer actually meant ‘pubic hair.’” — Washington City Paper‘s Managing Editor Mike Madden in a Monday tweet. Read the story he was referring to here. It’s by Moe Tkacik. The headline is: Author Sara Marcus: “Who Wants A Senator With Pubic Hair?”
‘It’s not him, it’s me’
“Trying to summon up the whatever-it-will-take to write a Conan review tonight. It’s not him, it’s me.” — WaPo‘s Hank Stuever in a Monday tweet.
Snappiest part of Bush-Lauer interview
“I resent it, it’s not true and it’s one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency.” — Former President Bush in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer Monday night on his memoir, Decision Points. Bush was discussing the moment when singer Kanye West said he didn’t care about black people.
“I knew there was something missing in my life for months … and now it’s returned. @ConanOBrien.” — Pamela Sorensen of Pamela’s Punch blog in LA and DC.
Serious flattery for D. Shuster
“Good morning and thank you for accepting my friend request. I’ve have long admired the way you report by going straight for the truth. You asked the questions we all wanted to ask when you interviewed the movers and shakers in DC. Sir, you are missed.” — A Facebook message to suspended MSNBCer David Shuster on Monday.
