Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day


Reporter’s bus driver drops f-bomb

“Was that my bus driver? ‘This is a one-way street! F— you, b—-!’” — Washington Examiner‘s David Freddoso.

TV reporter gets tortured at dental visit

“Dental hygienist dressed in blue. Should of been black leather. Subjected me to 45 minutes of torture. But my teeth look great!” — ABC7′s Stephen Tschida in a recent tweet.

Journo love

“My colleague Pete Williams, whose knowledge I’m constantly in awe of, says healthcare law is ‘in trouble’” — NBC Congressional Correspondent Luke Russert.

A White House correspondent praises his wife

“Happy Anniversary to Saintly Wife! Seems like just yesterday I was reading her answer to my online personal ad…” — Yahoo! News’ Olivier Knox.

Quote Taken Out of Context

“I know, but I had a bad experience with a wisdom tooth that I left in too long :( Don’t wanna see you down too!” — NBC Washington Social Media Editor Cheryl Thompson.

A mean note to BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith

“Someone needs to tell Ben Smith that it’s not really an exclusive if NO ONE ELSE IS INTERESTED IN YOUR LAME-ASS STORIES. #TanningBedOnStupid” — Breitbart.com‘s John Nolte

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“I really like broccoli.” — Politico‘s Jake Sherman. Of course his comment stemmed from Day 2 of the Supreme Court’s oral arguments surrounding President Obama’s healthcare legislation. Justice Antonin Scalia asked, “Why couldn’t the government make its citizens purchase, say, broccoli?” This is the Shermanator’s first FishbowlDC award of this nature and we’re banking that it won’t be his last.
