Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“I like it, it’s not true, but it’s all fun.” — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who couldn’t stop playing SNL’s impersonator of himself on his program Monday. The impersonator accentuated Matthews’ propensity to interrupt his guests, a behavior which he somehow has no clue that he does.

Bret Baier: Losing weight or sick?

“You are looking slimmer, hopefully you’re just getting healthy and you’re not sick,” a follower wrote in to FNC’s Bret Baier. He replied, “Healthy I think — thanks.”

Bosom Buddies: Gregory is “so right there with” Hayes 

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes: “Officially, fully, totally hooked on Homeland.”

NBC’s David Gregory: “.@chrislhayes I’m so right there with you. Watched season 1 in five days.”

Quote Taken Out of Context

“I like little wieners.” — Conservative blogger Lisa De Pasquale.

Post fight with The Daily Caller‘s Jeff Poor, Politico‘s Ben White attempts to defend his Yankees fandom: “Perhaps my Tweeps can attest to the fact that I’ve been annoying them about the Yankees for quite a long time?”

Fournier admits to being dumb

“Why are you tweeting any of this? Looks dumb?” a follower wrote in to National Journal Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier. He replied (we hope, sarcastically), “B/c I’m dumb. Why do you ask?”

Uh oh.

“I can barely breathe that is how sick I feel.” — InTheseTimes labor journo Mike Elk.

Whatever, dweeb

“That part of Twitter where reporters from various outlets start attacking each other? I’ll pass. #unfollowMonday.” — Politico‘s Marty Kady.
