QUOTES of the DAY

U.S. Senator just wants to tweet in peace

“Quit complaining abt my Twitter shorthand I know how to spell But Twitter limit is 120 characters” – Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley. (It’s actually 140 characters, senator, but we’ll let you off the hook.)

Bummer

“Looks like im bumped by Clinton on msnbc.” – lover of all things Fishbowl, WaPo‘s Ezra Klein. And we were so looking forward to it.

Distaste for Creed somehow matches distaste for James O’Keefe

“In prank journalism, Art Levine is to James O’Keefe what “Exile on Main Street” is to the Creed reunion album: http://bit.ly/fYVlMD” – Foreign Policy‘s Charles Homans.

Intern worships Oprah

“Seriously Arizona, you are my Oprah.” – Daily Caller intern Caitlin Emma. For those not following the NCAA college basketball tournament, the University of Arizona beat Duke, the top team in the country, and sent them packing.

And while we’re on the subject of the Daily Caller

“Leaving Florida with two dozen tattooed, sun-burned, drunk people. D.C., here I come.” – Caller reporter Mike Riggs, who spent the week in his home state. Welcome back.

And while we’re on the subject of returning to D.C.

Betsy Rothstein returns to the Fishbowl on Monday and this is my last day doing the morning quotes (and since the tweets out of D.C. weren’t so great yesterday), I’m giving myself a quote:

“Will we be able to say the word ‘winning’ ever again? Cause that was like an actual word once that I occasionally used” – FishbowlDC’s Alec Jacobs, referring of course to Charlie Sheen.

Still not sure why this was so funny…but it was

“Can’t believe lobsterfest is over.” – Fox News contributor and former press secretary for President George W. Bush, Dana Perino.
