QUOTES of the DAY

Random guy owns unfortunate Twitter handle

“Also, Tom Pawson is the lucky owner of @tpaw. VERY lucky.” – Ethan Klapper, intern at NJ and managing editor of the American University Eagle. GOP 2012 hopeful Tim Pawlenty, referred to by supporters as “T-Paw,” announced his presidential exploratory committee yesterday, no doubt inspiring this tweet.

Journo single-handedly solves Japan’s nuclear problems

“I vote we nuke the reactor! RT @Slate: Readers have sent 112 ideas for averting total nuclear catastrophe in Japan” – FrumForum.com assistant editor Noah Kristula-Green, making his own suggestion for how Japan can avert a nuclear disaster. We wrote about it yesterday.

Politico reporter knows the difference between gang and mafia

“Is it really still a gang if there’s 64 members? I feel like it becomes more of a mafia at that point.” – Politico‘s Byron Tau, referring to a group of senators WaPo‘s Ezra Klein has strangely termed the “Gang of 64.”

And while we’re on the subject of Ezra Klein…

“and you write like a blogger -LW @ezraklein Leon Wieseltier writes like a man who learned nothing from his cocksure…support for the Iraq War” – Freelancer and former WCP writer Moe Tkacik in response to Klein’s attack on TNR‘s Wieseltier.

Editor appreciates musical modesty

“Things I like: the relative modesty of the dreams of ‘I Will Buy You a New Life’ and ‘If I Had $1,000,000.’” – Washingtonian.com editor Alyssa Rosenberg.

Gogurt and other useless things

“Anyone who can find me a more useless grocery item wins a packet of Gogurt. http://bit.ly/i2BzKR” - Slate‘s Annie Lowrey. Lowrey is referring to Kraft Foods’ Philadelphia Cooking Creme, a “one-of-a-kind, spoonable creme” that will “enhance the dishes you already make and inspire even more!” Sounds useful to us.
