Gray: “U suck.”

Journo looks into gargling coconut oil

“Just googled ‘gargling with coconut oil’ so even if my twenties aren’t actually over yet, I’ve basically surrendered already.” — TNR‘s pathologically fascinating and Luke Russert-loving Noreen Malone. In case you care, the process of “oil pulling” or swishing coconut oil in your mouth, reportedly removes bacteria, toxins and parasites from your throat. It’s also alleged that the practice strengthens gums and relieves congested sinuses.

“Oh I got Twitchyed. I see. Anyway time for bed where I will dream sweet dreams of single payer and TAKING ALL YOUR GUNS AWAY.” — The Guardian‘s Ana Marie Cox.

“Watching the Beach Boys (w Brian Wilson!) on Full House singing Kokomo. Please kill me.” – Reason‘s Nick Gillespie. Gillespie later took time to practice his sarcasm, writing, “Can’t wait to hear Charles Krauthammer‘s take on the Redskins name controversy tomorrow on O’Reilly. How can I sleep?”

“I am seriously listening to weirdo Beach Boys 1973 songs while watching Yasiel Puig rock it silently on my TV. Life could be worse.” — Reason‘s Matt Welch.

Necessary Tweet of the Day

“Fun fact: ‘Chou chou’ means cabbage, a term of endearment in French. #RHOM” — Politico‘s Olivia Petersen.

  • “At midnight Speaker John Boehner becomes a pumpkin. An orange faced, drunken, failure of a pumpkin. #GOPShutdown” — Syndicated liberal columnist Karl Frisch.
  • “All the gallows humor very much appreciated (and fun!) but Jesus Christ THIS IS FUCKED UP. Let’s just not forget that.” — The Guardian‘s Ana Marie Cox.

Important question to ponder: Which Washington journo pulled his back?

“My TV just quit on me while watching CSPAN. Obviously a sign.” –  NPR’s Arnie Seipel at  10:15 p.m.

Eatery to lawmakers: No free pulled pork for you!

@PBBBQDelRay: “Free pulled pork sandwich for any gov employee if there is a shutdown. EXCLUDES CONGRESSMEN.”

Pre-emptive media strike

“No doubt OBJECTIVE @ABurnsPolitico, @maggiepolitico are working on piece asking y Hillary hasn’t ‘Soulja’d’ Obama for refusal to negotiate.” — Breitbart.com editor John Nolte.

 greenstripecoverfishWords to live by…

Editor’s brain shuts down

“You know what else has shut down? My brain. Time for bed. Will be up bright and early to cover the ongoing CR voterama. Night all.”– Red Alert Politics Editor-in-Chief Francesca Chambers at 12:10 a.m.

Wonkette’s Vital Q of the Day

If you thought your respect for Wonkette couldn’t sink any lower, think again because it’s about to get lower than a snail’s toenails (yeah, we didn’t know they had nails, either). Today Wonkette Publisher – yes, this is the Publisher –  Rebecca Schoenkopf presented a vital question to society via Twitter.

And to think this was once the must-read site in Capitol Hill offices and publications around Washington made famous by Ana Marie Cox.

Remember, Schoenkopf’s L.A.-based, so this is 6:34 a.m. Pacific Time. Read more

Mark Levin Calls Ana Marie Cox ‘Dumb’ After She Calls his Book ‘Boring’ and Insane

Breitbart.com‘s Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro ran a bread and butter post today in which conservative radio personality Mark Levin calls Guardian‘s lefty writer Ana Marie Cox “as dumb as it gets.” He throws in an “anal sex aficionado” descriptor just for fun.

The reason? Read more

Savannah Guthrie Getting Strange Shout-Outs

Last week Wendy’s fast food restaurant chain took notice of her new red-hued locks. “Welcome to the club,” they wrote on Twitter. Even The Christian Post got in on the action, writing a spot piece on her new hair color and one day wanting children with fiancé Michael Feldman. This week it’s HBO’s “The Newsroom” for her dancing and height. Whatever the case, NBC “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie is drifting into the spotlight with mentions in the least obvious places.

“How’d the date with the Giant last night?” Will McAvoy (played by Jeff Daniels) asked Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn) in last night’s episode of “The Newsroom.” Sloan replied, “Not that good. He did ditch me around midnight but I did end up dancing with Savannah Guthrie for awhile. That girl can dance. Have you seen the sheer length of her legs?”

The Guardian‘s Ana Marie Cox verified Guthrie’s dancing abilities. Read more

(A sprinkling of things we think you ought to know…)

Wonkette is now just a 40-year-old woman’s diary– Politico‘s Patrick Gavin has a story that puts a happy, smiley face on just how terrible Wonkette has become. Gavin’s piece brings up all the cool things Wonkette once had — fearless D.C. gossip, tabloid-worthy photos from the Capitol’s social scene, good writing, etc. — and reminds readers that you won’t find those things on the blog anymore. The features that made Wonkette fun to read have, instead, been replaced by “the occasional heartfelt rant from Schoenkopf about, say, gun control or the tornadoes in Oklahoma.” Now it’s a “national” site, according to its editor and owner, Rebecca Schoenkopf, who lives in Los Angeles. By “national,” Schoenkopf means she picks up on little news bits coming out of various statehouses across the country and mocks it with humor typical of high school freshmen who shop at Hot Topic. Curiously, Gavin also writes that under Schoenkopf, “long past are those very public and nasty feuds with Washington politicos.” This, even though it was just in January that Schoenkopf called FishbowlDC’s editor “a fucking cunt” with “cunt” being in the headline before that mysteriously disappeared. Not quite the creativity or intelligence that the blog’s founder Ana Marie Cox was known for. Read more

Quotes of the Day

Fallout: Bring Up Politics at Your Own Risk 

“I’m a douche low-life scumbag jackhole ghoul for noting Coburn already wants offsets to fed aid and Inhofe is climate change denier.” – Politico‘s Glenn Thrush, who got bombarded when he wrote this: “It’s striking that OK’s sens are 1) a federal spending skeptic and 2) global warming denier.” In response to the above, Kristina Ribali, director of new media at Freedom Works remarked: “@GlennThrush I didn’t say you were slamming them, I said you were being an ass. Have some class.” Labor reporter F. Bill McMorris wrote simply, “#douche.”

Did someone speak too soon? 

“Thank God tragedies like this one in OK bring out the highest and best in everyone – politicians, first responders, government, media.” — CNBC and NYT‘s John Harwood.

More media in-fighting…

The Nation‘s Katrina vanden Heuvel: “If GOP going to use IRS ‘scandal’ to demolish government,they may wish to look at need for very same government in Oklahoma tornado disaster.”

National Review Online‘s Jonah Goldberg: “.@KatrinaNation what’s really in poor taste how your point is so pedestrian and lame. Why bother? Jeez.”

The Day After: “It is always the next day when the sun comes up that we learn the extent of the horror.” — Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren.

And a few confessionals…

“Sometimes the disaster voyeurism on Twitter makes me uncomfortable.” — Blake Hounshel, managing editor of Foreign Policy mag.

“I lost some family that meant a lot to me in the AL tornadoes. Think I’ll clock out of coverage for the evening and pick it up in the AM.” — FBDC Contributor and Bill Press‘ producer Peter Ogburn.

“CIA source says Fox News scandal the ’4th Shoe’; says it goes much deeper; says WH also sitting on “something” that has top aides terrified.” — Drudge Report and TWT Columnist Joseph Curl.

GOP Spox Prediction: 60 Minutes to land first Obama interview

“White House/Obama scandal tsunami is growing. Odds that the White House offers Steve Kroft the first POTUS interview?” — NRSC Strategist/Spokesman Brad Dayspring in an unfortunate display of using a weather analogy on the wrong day.

Rubin Vs. Shuster

“Watching lefty media meltdown re Obama media spying is like a kid finding out Babe Ruth was a drunk. Sorry to disillusion but long overdue.” — WaPo‘s
“Right Turn” blogger Jennifer Rubin.

Shuster guts Rubin like a fish“When it comes to RWNJ’s, including @JRubinBlogger, who are mentally ill + psychotic, best to ignore them.” — Lefty radio host David Shuster. “[Jennifer Rubin] proves again she is a habitual liar. And, asking @CNN to cut the mic of somebody responding to her lies? Psychotic.”

Bureau Chief takes firm stance on exposed pits

“Phew, getting people blind drunk in bars in order to get them to tell you things isn’t in DOJ’s list of treasonous acts that reporters do.” — BuzzFeed Washington Bureau Chief John Stanton. And this from a few days ago, but we couldn’t resist it: “I’m a firm believer that sleeves are mandatory for dudes in a restaurant situation. Nobody wants your pits exposed near their food.”

Watch out, ladies, your purses are germier than you think

“Not the dinner hour yet so if you carry a purse tune in at 4. Report shows more germs on your purse than a toilet. News4 @nbcwashington.” — Jim Handly, anchor, NBC Washington.
