Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

GQ’s Ana Marie Cox shares her legs with the world. You be the judge. We’re just glad they were allowed to emerge from their blogger pajamas to see the sunlight.

QUOTES of the DAY

Media chairman disturbed by liberal approval

“For the second time in the last few months I have earned the praise of a liberal. This is disturbing.” — Don Irvine in a Monday tweet. Irvine is chairman of Accuracy in Media. Website description of the D.C.-based Accuracy in Media: “A non-profit, grassroots citizens watchdog of the news media that critiques botched and bungled news stories and sets the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage.”  He’s not kidding. He abhors slanted coverage – even, especially his own.

Hayes’ reaction goes nuclear

“Haven’t felt this chronically anxious and nauseated since the financial meltdown three years ago.” — The Nation‘s Washington Bureau Chief Chris Hayes in a Monday tweet opining on the Japan nuclear crisis, because it’s all about his feelings.

‘Middle class’ Anonymous Tipster razzes Maison Rose

“Being middle class I’m not sure I can afford that $3000K weekly fee…but I liked the story anyway.” — Anonymous tweet to FishbowlDC Monday regarding the travel story in WaPo by Steve V. Roberts about spending a week in southern France with wife, Cokie. The home they rented, Maison Rose, cost $3,000 for the week.

Tschida travels by bus

“On bus. It’s like last lifeboat off the titanic! So crowded when it rains!” — ABC7 Reporter Stephen Tschida, among our favorites, in a recent tweet. He tends to get a tad emotional when he travels whether it’s cross country or across town. We love him. Please take a ride today, Stephen — can be a taxi, a train, a bus. We’ll even be ecstatic if you take a bike ride.
