Morning Chatter

The “It’s not about me” line may not work for Weiner

“Dumbest line at debate- [Anthony] Weiner: ‘this is not about me or anyone else on this stage’ Yes it is, that’s the point of this debate!” — WOR Radio’s Mark Simone.

Reporter just wants “Hermes” pronounced correctly

“Hello @BravoAndy Could you please teach the Housewives how to pronounce Hermes when they stop by the clubhouse? Merci a vous!” — Bloomberg‘s Stephanie Green.

Confessional.

“Anytime someone says well-heeled donors I imagine a room full of feet decorated in Prada and Bruno Magli” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review political reporter Salena Zito.

More light abortion tweeting

“Let me answer your unasked question: Am I willing to infringe on your “autonomy” to save an unborn child? Yes. Yes I am. #AllDay #prolife” — RedState‘s Ben Howe.

How MMFA’s Maloy spends his day…

“The good news is that if de Blasio’s numbers drop we can all just transition to de Blah-sio. Or de Blasé. Or de BlasiOH NO YOU DIDN’T!” — the not that funny Simon Maloy of Media Matters, who spends his days thinking up genius tweets crap like this. Don’t “journalists” like him have a certain cable news channel to destroy?

Speaking of Media Matters oddities…

“Ok, for balance’s sake i will criticize a Newsbusters headline in the next 10 days. #MyPledgeToYou” — CNN’s Jake Tapper, shortly after calling a Media Matters headline “odd.” And the exact remark: “Oddly written Media Matters headline: ‘Fox Builds Claim Of Clinton Dishonesty On Omissions And Falsehoods’”

Huh?

“If you follow me then you’re probably already following @DylanByers but you can unfollow him for a sec and then follow him back right away.” — BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw. Dylan Byers is a media writer for Politico.

Razzing your colleague 101

“What I would pay to figure out why @charliespiering just ran past with the worst running form of all time” — Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green.

Politico reporter shares pet peeve

“People: ‘ATM machine’ is redundant. Yes, it bugs me more than it should, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.” — Politico defense reporter Leigh Munsil.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9:32 a.m.

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“That pizza was really good.” — Senior Exec. Producer for Al Jazeera America, Andrea Stone. We love your enthusiasm for pizza, Andrea. But next time could you maybe let us in on the restaurant?

HuffPost Turns 5

Over the weekend HuffPost‘s Washington D.C. newsroom celebrated five years of existence with a with a roof party atop their offices on Pennsylvania Avenue. As you can see by the photograph, Sam Stein (third row, sunglasses, toward the middle), Howard Fineman (gray fluffy hair, just beside Stein), Bureau Chief Ryan Grim (third guy from the right in back) and the rest of the HuffPost political team were all there to celebrate.

A few other people to point out in the mix. Front and center is FishbowlDC Fan Club member Andrea Stone. We can’t get enough of her astute thoughts. Visually she is the shortest human in the bunch. Juxtaposed with the 555-foot Washington Monument, it’s possible that she may be a Munchkin. Then, right behind her is a homeless guy who somehow sneaked into the party. Just so happens his name is Jason Linkins too! Out front in the pretty mustard yellow dress is Amanda Terkel.

Happy Anniversary HuffPost!

Separated at Birth: HuffPost’s Andrea Stone

Today’s set of twins who somehow parted ways at birth is HuffPost Senior National Correspondent Andrea Stone and pollster Dick Morris.

Henneberger Seeks Funding to Resume Politics Daily

We hear that Politics Daily Editor-in-Chief Melinda Hennenberger, who was formally laid off last week from HuffPost/AOL, is seeking venture capital to reassemble the Politics Daily team at a new site. Meanwhile, some of her now former writers are being folded into HuffPost/AOL, such as White House Correspondent Alex Wagner who is going to Huffington Post Media Group to be Social Impact Reporter along with David Wood (Military Defense Correspondent) and Andrea Stone (Senior National Correspondent).

In her recent sign off from Politics Daily, Henneberger lays out her plan: “All I’ve learned in the last two years has actually made me more rather than less optimistic about the future of journalism; though PD didn’t survive, quality does work on the Web. I’m even hopeful that I may get to try and put together a new start-up with the old url – a request that I’m told AOL CEO Tim Armstrong is seriously considering, for no reason other than that he’d rather see us live on, too. And whatever he decides, I wish all of my former AOL colleagues only smooth landings.”

We’ve requested comment from Henneberger on the matter.

Whatever happens, the Editor-in-Chief is clearly missed…
