Quotes of the Day

Jack Abramoff gives heartfelt thanks to book party guests.

Party Chatter

“Sometimes it gets a little depressing  to see your picture on the front of the Post.” — Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff in a living room speech at Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson‘s home last night. He called the party “one of the finest evenings” of his life in the past eight years. One thing’s clear: Sure beats federal prison.

“Not a chance!” — Carlson on giving a mid-party tour of his new house.

(Much more on the Abramoff book party later…)

Um, no

“Would it be cool if I got ‘Drudge Life’ tatted on my lower lip?” — Fake Jim VandeHei.

Oh what a surprise: Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff brags about himself. “The CIA (!) reviewed @thethreatmatrix this week in its in-house journal, calling it a ‘reading pleasure.’”

Resumé Gems

“Don’t overlook me.” — FBDC applicant in a cover letter.
