QUOTES of the DAY


Reporter loves confused C-SPAN callers

“Oh, CSPAN callers mixing up censure and censorship, I love you. — Bloomberg TV‘s Lizzie O’Leary in a Thursday tweet.

Journo avoids profanity rant

“Anger management. It ain’t just a movie.” — The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Sam Youngman in a tweet earlier this week. Youngman explained, “Twitter requires a new dimension of anger management. I wrote that instead of some profanity-laced diatribes (is 140 characters too short for it to technically be a diatribe?) that I would have regretted today.”

Slightly off-color Facebook banter

“Saw Dana Perino in the Fox News makeup room tonight! What’s not to love?” — The Washington Examiner‘s White House Correspondent Julie Mason in a Wednesday night Facebook update. She added, “I also saw Newt Gingrich.” Which prompted a fellow Facebooker to ask, “Are they dating?”

A scribe’s random act of kindness

“Just complimented someone on their parallel parking.” — The Hill‘s Erica Niedowksi in a Thursday tweet.

Typical Weingarten poop tweet

“No, Sarah. We eat, therefore we shit. No further universality applies. @SarahPalinUSA PETA: Remember – we eat, therefore we hunt.” — WaPo‘s Gene Weingarten in a Thursday tweet.
