Quotes of the Day

Schieffer’s crush on Paltrow intensifies

CBS “Face the Nation” Host Bob Schieffer completes Politico‘s “Answer This” interview in which he answers the question, “What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?” His reply: Gwyneth Paltrow. Read the full interview here. Re-read FBDC’s Matt Dornic‘s FishbowlDC interview with Schieffer from Friday in which he also discusses Paltrow. In that interview he called Paltrow his unfulfilled item from his bucket list. Even journalists like Gawker’s vulgar Jim Newell are starting to talk. “Bob Schieffer seriously wants to bang Gwyneth Paltrow.” Come on Newell, this is Schieffer for God sakes. Show some respect.

Washingtonian Editor reads at least three newspapers

“Today’s my 1st day as a 3 newspaper household (NYT, WP, WSJ), which I realize is 3 more than the 17 neighbors in my building get combined.” — Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff. Congratulations?? We hope he doesn’t become a hoarder. A better question: How many of those neighbors read Washingtonian?

Late-night ‘retard’ insensitivity with Dan Riehl
