QUOTES of the DAY


The Murdoch Hearings

“If you’re tired of Murdoch Michael Vick testifying to Congress on bill making it crime for adult to bring child to dogfight or be spectator.” — NBC’s Andrea Mitchell in a Tuesday tweet.

“James saying ‘I think it’s a really good question and an important question’ is like the chorus to the verses of his testimony. — Politico media writer Keach Hagey in a Tuesday tweet in regards to James Murdoch‘s testimony before Parliament.

“If you’re waiting for ‘you can’t handle the truth’ level drama from the Murdoch hearings, you haven’t watched enough CSPAN.- Politifact developer Matt Waite in a Tuesday tweet.

“Cameron going before Parliament and being shown on MoJo and American Morning is like political candy to me.” — NJ “The Hotline’s” Chris Peleo Lazar in a Wednesday tweet referring to British Prime Minister David Cameron.

“I’m loving Parliament’s reaction to PM Cameron. ‘Yeaaaaaaaaaah’ — WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart in a Wednesday morning tweet.

“Watching House of Commons. If the gallery in the House/Senate behaved the way MPs do in Britain they would be thrown out. Can we import?” — CNN White House reporter Brianna Keilar in a Wednesday morning tweet.

Local TV reporter hates to floss

“Um ok I’m lying. I hate to floss.. and I’m married to a dentist so imagine how those night time conversations go.” — WUSA9′s Angie Goff in a Wednesday morning blog post on the importance of flossing.

TV journo hails benefits of green tea

“2:52am…and the two cups of green tea are kicking in. #bouncingoffwalls” — ABC News Correspondent Karen Travers in a middle of the night tweet Wednesday. This morning she wrote, “We have officially reached PB&J time on overnight shift.”

Bio of the Day

Roger Simon: “Chief Political Columnist for Politico: Sometimes in error, but never in doubt.”

The Observer

“In the Bachmann household gayness is ‘curable’ but all the praying in the world won’t stop a determined migraine.” — TPM‘s Brian Beutler in a Tuesday tweet. He’s referencing this story by The Daily Caller‘s Jonathan Strong on presidential hopeful Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s reportedly debilitating migraine headaches.

Bachmann statement ‘not enough’

“A two-paragraph statement where she says she’s OK is not going to fly. It’s not enough,” GOP consultant Ron Bonjean told Politico in an early morning follow-up story on Bachmann’s headaches. The story cites The Daily Caller in paragraph four for breaking the story. More Bonjean: “This is an issue that is neurological in nature, that affects consciousness and the ability to think clearly.”

 

 

Fab or Fug?

The above is a pretty dress worn by a journalist Saturday night to the Capitol File after party, so we’re not giving it a Fug. However, may we suggest a different bra?  Perhaps a racerback style or clips that draw the straps together would pull this look together. Barring all that, calling WUSA’s Angie Goff!  There is a bra in crisis and you may be the only one who can help!

Dogs Can Have WHCD Parties, Too

Last night, on the patio of Art and Soul on Capitol Hill, AnimalFair.com hosted its second annual White House Pet Correspondents’ Benefit. The dogs were generally well-behaved, though there was some growling, barking and butt-sniffing. How very Washington.

Wendy Diamond, the proprietor of AnimalFair, played host to raise money for Pets2Vets, which pairs returning veterans with adopted dogs. She was joined by her dog, Lucky, whom she calls the White House pet correspondent. The resident White House dog, Bo Obama, was not in attendance. He wasn’t even invited, though Diamond insisted his presence would have been welcome.

Pets2Vets, or P2V, was founded by David Sharpe in early 2010. Sharpe described suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and depression upon his return from tours of duty in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. But when he adopted a rescue dog, a three-month-old pitbull mix named Cheyenne, the feelings of depression subsided. It led him to found P2V, which he describes as “a Match.com between a sheltered pet and a veteran.” Pets offer “unconditional, pure love” and Sharpe says that veterans, who often feel judged opening up to doctors about their feelings, don’t feel the same way with animals. He said the program helps both the veterans who “just want companionship” and the dogs, which come from abusive homes.

The small crowd of human guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres from Art and Soul, including mushroom puffs and fried mac and cheese, along with a wine bar. The canine guests, all under 21, were instead served water. They munched on treats and bones.

Attendees were also treated to cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake, decked out in red, white and blue. The owners of the store and the stars of TLC’s “D.C. Cupcakes,” Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, made an appearance at the event, though they’ll be heading to New York today for an appearance on “The View”‘s royal wedding special.

The McLaughlin Group’s John McLaughlin, Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson, WUSA’s Angie Goff, and Buzz Aldrin all serve on the host committee. None were able to attend.

Angie Goff’s Favorite Bra Co. Checks in

Earlier this week we posted about WUSA9 reporter Angie Goff and her bra shopping excursion and her encounter with Cyla “The Bra Lady” Weiner. Hardest day on the job so far.

But then, late Tuesday night, I was terrified to discover an e-mail from Iris Honrade at Cake Lingerie. Had I made a mistake? Were they annoyed that I called their product a “great bra named after food,” or that I put “Cake Lingerie” in scare quotes?

Turns out, neither. Iris was thrilled that we had mentioned the company, and told me about their latest launch, the Birthday Cake collection, featuring Cake Lingerie’s very own technology – MyBust (Seriously.) “Gone are the ‘one style fits all’ bra as each bra with the MyBust technology has been specifically tailored for each bust size,” Iris wrote. And here I was, thinking we’d never see the day when nursing bras were designed to cater to women with different cup sizes.

She also sent me some great photographs of their bra styles. This one is called “Turkish Delight.”

Now that’s a bra!

Reporter Hunts for Bras (Again)

WUSA9′s Angie Goff is at it again. And by “it” we mean talking about shopping for bras on her website.

Goff naturally assumed that any kind of bra “with ‘nursing’ attached to it could not be attractive.” But thank Goff for Cyla Weiner, referred to affectionately as “The Bra Lady,” who showed her some great bras named after foods (there was a “blackberry bra” and something called “Cake Lingerie”).

Goff is also shocked to discover that reversible tights exist. It’s like getting two pairs of tights for the price of one. “Who’d a thunk?” she asked in her post. We couldn’t have articulated it any better.

What we Almost Missed…(and Maybe Should Have)

The very pregnant WUSA TV Channel 9′s Angie Goff is two months away from delivery, and this week she writes about bra shopping. She describes how “uncomfortable” and “unpredictable” it can be. (Flying bras are such a nightmare.)

Actually, what’s uncomfortable is her post, which is a tad personal for comfort. She describes how the bra lady discovered that her “band width” is bigger. “I never knew motherhood could be so sexy,” she writes.

And we never knew a picture of a bra cup could be quasi-disturbing.

Media Frenzy at Real Housewives Premiere Party

Extra, CNN, WaPo, the Examiner, Politics Daily, Politico, The Hill, CBS and NBC are just a few of the media outlets that showed up to cover last night’s premiere and screening party for Bravo’s “Real Housewives of DC,” held at the Madison Hotel in downtown Washington.

The invite-only fete featured all of the “housewives” and their families except for White House crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi who hosted their own pay-for party down the street at Josephine — a good move considering the crowd at the Madison booed the notorious couple each time they appeared on screen.

Even without the Salahis, the event offered its fair share of drama and whispers when Lynda Erkiletian arrived with a Secret Service-looking security detail of four in tow. More catty comments were made about Catherine Ommanney who showcased her sickly physique by wearing a tacky, slinky, backless dress.

But it wasn’t all would-be reality stars….Washington media was out in full force. FishbowlDC caught up with Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, the Yeas and Nays ladies – Nikki Schwab and Katy Adams, Liz Glover, WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, Amy Holmes, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Omarosa, The Hill‘s Christina Wilkie, Washington Life‘s Michael Clements, Politics Daily’s Annie Groer, NBC’s Janet Donovan, Mix 107.3′s Tommy McFly, WUSA’s Angie Goff, CBS News’ Christine Delargy and even Washingtonian‘s Garret Graff whose knowledge and love for reality television baffled and amazed us.
