Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

Journo wants CNN’s Piers Morgan deported

“Can someone set up a kickstarter to fund deportation of Piers Morgan and the rest of these #jubilee fools drooling over an aging despot?” — Roll Call‘s John Stanton, who previously said he’d rather smoke bath salts with Jeffrey Dahmer than watch the Queen’s Jubilee.

Charges pressed

“I have pressed charges against Tim Scott’s COS Nick Muzin for simple assault & Honeywell PR guy Rob Ferris for false imprisonment.” — Mike Elk of InTheseTimes Magazine. Last Thursday he alleges he was grabbed by Muzin and locked in a room against his will by Honeywell’s Ferris, who did not return a phone call to FBDC on the matter. Elk continued, “The charges will be forwarded to the U.S. Attorney’s office who will decide whether or not to prosecute. I was hesitant to press charges cuz I didn’t want to seem like a crybaby, but precedent of intimidating reporters in Capitol is scary.”

Never a dull moment

“Met a man who legally changed his name to Jehovah Jesus. Had a lot to say about the CIA, Supreme Court Justice Souter, etc.” — CJ Ciaramella, a reporter at Free Beacon.

Democratic operative lashes out at WaPo‘s Rubin

“Unpaid Romney spokesperson Jennifer Rubin also has thoughts on the media. #classy.” — the always thoughtful DNC New Media Outreach Director Greg Greene. He links to this. As you can see, reaching out as usual. Thanks Greg!

Quote taken out of context

“@samyoungman isn’t a wedgie in order?” — FNC’s Ed Henry to Reuter‘s Sam Youngman.

Thanks for the memories!

“Perhaps worst spelling gaffe I can remember, @BashirLive, was when @msnbc gave Niger Innis two ‘G’s in his first name.” — Newsbuster‘s Ken Shepherd.

Journo grants permission to torture him

“If I ever happen to catch a single second of Lifetime TV’s”Dance Moms,” you have permission to waterboard me” — NRA News’ Cameron Gray in an apparent moment of shame about the popular dance show on the women’s network.

Ouch!

“Well, progress is overrated, I’ll just get back to work…work that I am paid less for than a man. #PayCheckFairness” — Erikka Knuti, Democratic strategist who works at Ogilvy.

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day: Hat Attack

“I vow to wear hats more often in an effort to bring them back into fashion.” — Greenwire‘s Jessica Estepa.
