Journo Ringtones

This is, admittedly, a trend we’d like to see more of: Media ringtones. You can have Chris Matthews yell “Let’s play Hardball!” every time your cell phone rings (but, come on, we’d much rather hear his “HA!” laugh. Who will make FishbowlDC’s day and send us a .wav of that?!?).

What are some other good cell phone ring tone ideas?

  • Tim Russert talking about dad.

  • Bob Novak saying “That’s bullshit.”

  • George Stephanopolous saying, “And now, the Sunday Funnies.”

  • John McLaughlin saying “Issue number four!”

  • David Shuster’s trademark, “I’m David Shuster, for Hardball, in Washington.”

  • John Bresnahan screaming at someone.

  • Any word spoken by Katty Kay in that accent of hers.

  • Joe Scarborough saying, “This is morning Joe.”

  • Wolf Blitzer saying, “You’re in the Situation Room.”

  • Tony Snow rocking out to some Jethro Tull.

  • Don Imus saying, “What I said was awful, just awful, and, and idiotic, a really stupid, idiotic awful thing to say..”

  • Christopher Hitchens saying, “If you gave Falwell an enema, he could be buried in a matchbox.”

  • A greatest hits mash-up of deep throated gurgles from Bob Edwards, Lou Dobbs, Brit Hume, Eugene Robinson and Carl Kasell.
