Quotes of the Day

“My little nugget gained 1.5 lbs in two weeks.” — Tim Wong, WaPo designer.

12 Things We Never Tire of in the Fishbowl

By Betsy Rothstein, Peter Ogburn and Eddie Scarry

We know you have one more year-end list in you. Or maybe you don’t. But wake up anyhow because here’s ours — the 12 things that never, ever make us want to take an afternoon snooze.

12. NBC Luke Russert‘s loud and fratboyish ways. Even House Speaker John Boehner has noted his decibel level and called him “loudmouth.” Though he’ll never get White House Soup of the Day quite right when he subs for Chuck Todd on “The Daily Rundown,” among our favorite moments with Luke this year was when he had a stop and smell the roses moment at a Nats game and took a picture of a spellbinding dragonfly, which he later posted on Twitter. Perhaps more poignantly though was when he covered a Capitol Hill presser and asked House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi if she was too old to remain in the Democratic leadership. The crowd of female lawmakers openly booed him. Pelosi told him he was offensive, even if he didn’t quite get it. Among the most entertaining comments sprang from CNN’s Hilary Rosen, who wrote on Twitter, “Note to Luke Russert: Mitch McConnell is 70, Harry Reid is 73. Oh and Bob Schieffer is 75. Think they should step aside? #NewGuysRule?” The question wasn’t an inappropriate one to raise, as lawmakers themselves had been discussing it out of earshot of Pelosi. Perhaps, as some noted, the time and setting and brash way in which Russert executed his questions were troublesome. Still, we especially enjoyed the commenters on Politico. There was the irate Wendy: “Luke Russert got his ass handed back to him. Any more questions, punk?” And the more sensible Chance: “Reporters should be asking tough, offensive and even stupid questions.”

11. Video journalist Michelle Fields flashing her breasts on national TV to get a job for Fox News. Her large male online contingency didn’t mind it much, either. In the meantime The Daily Caller gave her the axe for being lazy. Somehow Executive Editor David Martosko‘s lectures didn’t work? Favorite 2012 memory: There was the January manifesto from a convicted rapist that Michelle showed off on Facebook. But we’re torn between that and the more recent BuzzFeed party, where she unashamedly performed dramatic hair flips as our own Eddie Scarry snapped pictures.

10. Most things Matthew Boyle. The 20-something dogged journo never ceases to amaze. There was the time he insisted that the President of the Free World should allow him over for an interview. The more recent jaw-dropping moment from Boyle came when he fled The Daily Caller for Breitbart.com because he wants to be the next Andrew Breitbart. He started this adventure by taking his own photograph for the site, giving himself the unfortunate look of a triple-chinned Michelin Man. In his opening story out of the gate, he wrote an atrociously unedited right-wing rant about “magic vaginas.” We’re still not sure what those our, except we think they don’t involve Sandra Fluke. It was perfect. And terrible. And because we love Boyle in our own special way, we’d like to kidnap and deprogram him before it’s too late and the goose is boiled. Stick to breaking news Boyle and it’ll be just fine. And whatever you do, don’t stay there long.

9. Inside stories from The Washington Times. Always weird, unexpected, mind-boggling happenings at the ominous building off New York Avenue. Who can forget when former writer Julia Duin publicly accused then-editor Sam Dealey of verbally abusing her by canning her on the very day she decided to bring her daughter to work? She was also reportedly on crutches that day. And then there’s the more recent spate of stories concerning the impending layoffs coming in early 2013. The newsroom has dubbed their CEO Larry Beasley “Evil Santa” for a number of reasons, including recently moving a new sofa into his office while deciding whom to lay off. He also recently displayed a Santa doll holding a Christmas tree with the word “joy” on it. As the journalists await possible pink slips, they’re anything but joyful.

Quotes of the Day

A real HuffPost headline: “This kitten is unstoppable at ping pong”

Looks like Wolf’s nickname is sticking

“Sen. Ayotte called Wolf Blitzer “Blitz” on @AC360 just now.” — Former Herman Cain spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael. As everyone can recall, it was Cain who first slipped up and called CNN’s Wolf Blitzer “Blitz.”

Journo witnesses real life in-flight episode of Intervention

“This girl strung out on something just turned my entire flight experience into an episode of Intervention.” — Politico Pro producer Caitlin Emma, en route to D.C. from Boston. She continued, “They let this girl board the plane even though she was so high she was incapacitated! Crazy. Made it to DC though!”

Phillipe Cousteau: Engaged. The D.C. bachelor (and son of Jacque) is reportedly off the market. So far the bride-to-be is a mystery, with Facebook observers referring to her as “mermaid” and “lucky lady.”

Reporters complain of ugly nude protestors

“Dear naked protestors, please take lessons from PETA and at least make us want to stare at your naked hot protestor super models.” — CNN Contributor and RedState‘s Erick Erickson in reference to a nude AIDS activists who showed up to House Speaker John Boehner’s office Tuesday. Yes they were arrested. Yes, the cameras kept rolling. See pictures here.

At least PETA hires hotties when it has nude protests. — FBDC and TheBlaze‘s Eddie Scarry.

A quick memo… from Fake Jim VandeHei to National Journal Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier, who is stepping down and becoming a national correspondent: “Ron Fournier, some of us write AND edit.” Taking a more glass half full approach, former Politico reporter and current White House correspondent for The Hill Amie Parnes sails in with this: “Ron Fournier, writing is so much better than editing. welcome back!”

Journo Perks

Everyone knows that journalism is typically not a profession in which the big bucks roll in. So today we begin a new formal feature focusing on the perks or freebies journalists receive. If you’d like to send us news or pictures of your perks, we’d love that. And yes, your anonymity for a feature like this is guaranteed. We’re looking for truth, not trouble. Some believe the practice is grotesque — how can you accept “gifts” from sources? Doesn’t it cloud your writing? Others say, why would you be stupid not to, especially in the context of needing to try or experience certain things to write a story? Just disclose and you’re just fine.

But are you? While the ethics continue to be murky, we’ll let the items and details surrounding them speak for themselves.

We begin with a recent care package we received from BrandLink Communications on behalf of Kiehl’s. The goody bag contained Cross-Terrain All-in-One Refueling Wash which doubles as delectable shampoo and body wash. Smells clean, fresh and linen-y without being overpowering. Both men and women could get away with using it. Other items: miniature rich, nourishing original body cream, Eucalyptus Lip Relief (FBDC’s Eddie Scarry refused it after sniffing it. He said it smells like Campho Phenique), Cross-Terrain UV Skin Protector (SPF 50) — looks like creme brulee and smells so ultra-fresh and beachy it could pass for an ingenious perfume, Ultra Facial Cream (delicious whipped butter consistency), Ultimate Strength Hand Salve (also smells like Campho Phenique), Midnight Recovery Concentrate (which promises a better complexion by morning) and the exciting Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer.

Have a perk you’d like to tell us about? Write us at FishbowlDC@mediabistro.com or to Betsy@mediabistro.com.

TIPS FROM THE POOL, INTO THE DEEP END

White House Pooler Todd Gillman of the Dallas Morning News focused on movie references in a Pool Report last night in Beverly Hills: “The president appeared before 600 or so hooting, hollering supporters at an LGBT campaign fund-raiser in a ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire – the ‘Pretty Woman’ hotel. They gave him a prolonged standing ovation, chanting “Four more years!” after an introduction from a gay Army doctor. The stage was striking. Obama spoke from a lectern, no seal, with an enormous American flag draped behind him like the scene in ‘Patton,’ his head not even reaching the top of the fourth stripe.”

Breitbartonian attacks BuzzFeed Ben

“Someone needs to tell @BuzzFeedBen that when a politician says “jump,” the followup question is “why?”, not ‘how high?’” — Breitbart.com’s Ezra Dulis (Always exciting to hear about yet another Ezzy on the planet.)

Bird commits attempted thievery against journo

“Bird just scared the sh*t out of me as it tried to steal my muffin. #AttackCafe” — FBDC and The Blaze‘s Eddie Scarry in an early morning tweet. Eddie later told me, “Seriously, it was like that movie ‘The Birds.’ They’re the tiny harmless ones but I was honestly afraid because they travel in flocks.” He added, “One bird flew onto my muffin (that sounds dirty) and picked at it before I shooed it away. But then several came to gang up on it.” Be safe, Eddie.

From the Peanut Gallery…“Today’s Style section has got to be the dullest the Washington Post has ever produced!!!!” — DCRTV’s Dave Hughes, who is really like family to FBDC.

And now, a semi-polite request from The Daily Beast columnist and MSNBC Contributor Meghan McCain: “If you are going to excerpt my book without permission – please don’t bastardize the context of my statements. The book is meant to be read.” Her new book: America, You Sexy Bitch.

Highly Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“Perfect park slope lunch: salami, mozzarella, eggplant and peppers sandwich from the pork store and granita from what used to be ozzies.” — The Nation‘s Ben Adler, who spent the bulk of Wednesday pouting about this item on The Nation‘s illustrious Editor-at-Large and MSNBC Host Chris Hayes. The only contender for this feature came from conservative blogger Robert Stacy McCain: “Just woke up from a LONG nap.” Thanks for sharing Stacy!

Sophia tweeted about her kidney stone issues over the weekend intermingled with inspirational thoughts on connecting with God.

PBS’ Gwen Ifill asks: “Honest question. When is the last time we’ve seen a series of such delayed, grudging endorsements?” (She’s of course referring to Rick Santorum‘s 11 p.m. lackluster email endorsement of Mitt Romney.)

Yeah sure, Eddie

“I’m never going to be a Meryl Streep. But then, she’ll never be a Dolly Parton either. Be true to you! :) ” — Dolly Parton. This was retweeted by Newsweek senior reporter Daniel Stone. The Hill‘s Amie Parnes then weighed in, saying, “I love that you RTed that.” Stone then felt compelled to reply: “Yep. Anyone who would apologize for RTing @Dolly_Parton aint a real fan.”

Juana attends ‘Nerd Happy Hour’

HBO’s Bill Maher Pushes His Way to the Edge

Profanity Count

Fuck: 45

Shit: 13

Cow shit: 1

Dog shit: 1

Bullshit: 5

Dick: 2

Balls: 1

P—y: 2

Ass: 6

Asshole: 5

Pot. P—y. Palin. Religion. These were just some of the topics HBO comedian and “Real Time” host Bill Maher addressed before a crowd in Rockville, Md.

“We get two parties and one can’t be for pot?” Maher asked incredulously at the top of the show. Dressed in a watermelon-colored T-shirt and faded blue jeans, Maher’s hair was styled in his familiar slicked back blond-gray do. “Pot is the one issue that unites hillbillies and hippies.”

As the evening wore on he moved through the GOP candidates, President Obama and religion at a quick clip, moving on to sex, marriage, Cialis, ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), ex-Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) and House Speaker John Boehner. “Contraception? I thought we already accepted that,” he said. “Presidential candidates talking about rubbers?”

On Obama: “Obama is half black and half white. I think the first term was the white term and now we’re going to get the black term.” The crowd roared with applause. Maher encouraged the President to change up his hairstyle. “Grow your hair out! That alone would accomplish a great deal. I would donate another million if you grow your hair out.”

On GOP hopeful Rick Santorum: “He’s more backed up than whatever highway is near here.” … “And I love the sweater vest. Let’s see, what should I be, the pedophile at a church picnic.”

On GOP hopeful Mitt Romney: “Most people know that Mitt Romney is Richie Rich Prick.”

On GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich: “There are actual newts that are less slimy than Newt.” Maher pointed out that Gingrich left his first and second wives who had cancer and multiple sclerosis. He asked, “How is it that when Newt fucks you, you get very very sick?”

On ex-Rep. Weiner: “This is a guy who has a sex scandal and doesn’t get any p—y. Really, not a blowjob from an intern or a tryst in a men’s bathroom?”

On Palin: “Who has better qualifications than Sarah Palin? She’s got a Facebook. She should be president.”

At one point during the religion portion of his material, he remarked on the Catholic Church and joked about the Pope wearing a dunce cap. He said, “I was never molested. It’s their loss, I was a cute kid.” He also went off on Mother Theresa and said that even she had a crisis of faith during her life. “This is like finding out that the colonel doesn’t eat the chicken!” Maher cracked.

On Fox News: “Outside the Fox News bubble are facts. You can actually measure shit.”

On suicide: Maher said he’s “pro-suicide” or “whatever clears the highway.”

Maher recalled a USA Today story on weather casters who doubted global warming. He said his weather caster was a “woman with big tits who used to be on Telemundo.”

At one point the audience moaned as Maher seemed to go too far. “Sorry,” he said laughing as he looked out into the subdued suburban crowd. “I don’t know where the edge is here.”

Note to Readers: FBDC’s Eddie Scarry was responsible for tracking the number of times Maher said “fuck.”
