Fox News’ Gutfeld to Grace Washington D.C.

FNC “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld will be visiting Washington next week on behalf of his new book, The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph Over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage. The folks at will host a book part for him at the infamous Breitbart Embassy on Capitol Hill. Invite Only. Might not want to crash this one…if you’re not invited they won’t be shy about kicking your a– out.



What’s Dana Tweeting?

If you want political insight with a conservative point of view, you should follow Fox News’ Dana Perino on Twitter. If you like compromising photos of people’s pets, you should also follow Dana Perino on Twitter. It’s a mixed bag with Perino. One moment, she’s criticizing Congress for not having put forth a budget, then she’ll tease Greg Gutfeld, co-host of “The Five,” then she’ll tweet out occasionally pornographic pictures of her beloved pooch, Jasper.

For example, here’s Dana ribbing Gutfeld, Eric Bolling and Bob Beckel, her co-hosts of the Five, in a recent tweet:

What a tease! Seeing Eric Bolling wearing nothing but a Constitution is scary enough, but I REALLY want to here about Bob Beckel’s date.

Dana then waded into the recent NFL replacement refs controversy by tweeting:

Luckily, she acknowledged that she was only joking because the referees she was complaining about were the real, reinstated refs.

But just like Skynyrd has to play “Free Bird”, Dana knows her hits. It didn’t take long for her to tweet out the picture of her pup, Jasper, seen above in a compromising position. Dana tweets, “Can not bear the anticipation of the debate – wake him when it’s over!”

This actually works on a lot of levels because Jasper is doing a really good job of summing up how I act when I see people tweeting about their pets.

What’s Dana Tweeting?

It’s time to check in with chronic over-sharer and prolific tweeter, Dana Perino of Fox News. As 1/5 of “The Five”, Dana tweets about the most mundane day-to-day activities. We’ve seen her tweet about fashion, her feuds with fellow Foxer, Greg Gutfeld, and anything else that passes through that blonde head of hers. For example, when she was feeling a sore throat coming on, she asked for help from her flock of followers.

She got bombarded with suggestions. They ranged from tea to honey to whiskey. The last suggestion made Dana very happy.

Perhaps she dipped into the whiskey just a little too much because before you know it, she had tweeted out the terrifyingly pornographic picture of her pooch seen above. Dana has caught Olympic fever saying, “Jasper the contortionist. Maybe he will be able to compete in the diving competition after all.”


The FishbowlDC Interview With Daily Caller’s Resident Daredevil Josh Peterson

Say hello to The Daily Caller‘s Tech Editor Josh Peterson. He has been with the publication since October, and before that worked at the Heritage Foundation for a month as an intern in their investigative reporting unit. Born in Honolulu, Peterson grew up in Forest Lake, Minn. with his mother and stepfather. Among Peterson’s claims to fame is that he once gave himself a black eye in a skateboarding accident when his face scraped on the side of a concrete staircase. (He can barely tell the story he’s laughing so hard.) The incident landed him in the ER and he awoke with his eye swollen shut. “I was definitely a klutz growing up,” he said, explaining that he BMX biked and played hockey. “I played a lot of sports but I was always hurting myself. I will still graze the corner of a table now and then. My shoulder will hit a wall by accident.” At 25 he broke a rib in a martial arts accident and a couple years ago he sprained an ankle. Putting it mildly, he said, “I’m an adventure seeker. I hope that I’m a fearless journalist.” He plays guitar and sings and says D.C. isn’t necessarily a perfect fit. Some people love Washington, he says, “I’m not that person. But I feel passionate about being involved in public discourse.”

If you were a carbonated beverage, which would you be? Cherry Coke. I’m addicted to the stuff.

How often do you Google yourself? All the time.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever said to an editor/boss (or vice versa)? I haven’t gotten to that point, yet. I’m saving that for a rainy day and a different place of employment. I love my job.

Who is your favorite working journalist and why? Jillian Melchior, a friend of mine from my alma mater, Hillsdale College. She’s fearless.

Do you have a favorite word? Elegance.

Who would you rather have dinner with – The Daily Caller’s David Martosko, Kim Kardashian or CNN’s Wolf Blitzer? Tell us why. Kim Kardashian. I have a feeling David and Wolf would understand.

The Earth’s human population is dying out and you must save it. You will spend a romantic evening with either Gabby Sidibe (“Precious” etc..) or Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas). Who will it be? (Neither is not an option.) Gabby Sidibe.

What swear word do you use most often? @#%#!

You’ve just been told the big news: You get to have your own Sunday morning talk show. Who will be on your roundtable? (Pick four journalists or pundits types.) Tucker Carlson, Greg Gutfeld, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart. It would probably be the funniest show on television. Sunday morning shows are so serious. I think it would help to lighten up the atmosphere if there were more comedy in politics.

On a serious note for a moment, if you could have dinner with a person who has died, who would it be? Bruce Lee. I’m a mixed martial artist, and he has been a hero of mine since I was a boy.

Who is your favorite Boybander and why? (Ezzy, Hazy, Weigel, Attackerman, Beutler) Definitely Attackerman. I’m a huge fan of Wired’s Danger Room blog. They cover some of the craziest technologies. Their coverage of national security issues overlaps with the things I cover, so I’m always trying to read what they have to say.

When you pig out what do you eat? Chili and Rice.

What is your absolute favorite item of clothing in your closet? We want the fabric, the brand, the store and the price if possible. If it’s a certain kind of underwear we don’t want to know about it. My yellow Google sunglasses.

Pick one: Mad Men, Scandal or True Blood. Mad Men

Have you ever had a tarot card reading? Yes. Having studied Religion and Philosophy in college, I am fascinated by belief systems that people use to ascribe meaning and significance to their lives, as well as psychological games that allow people to gain deeper insight into a person’s psyche. Tarot and astrology also have a fascinating history tied to the Church.

Have you ever had a near-death experience? Once I fell asleep at the wheel while driving on the freeway during rush hour, only to wake up right before I sideswiped the wire guard rail. The car was totaled, and my little brother was in the passenger seat. We were both alright and no one was hurt, but my worst fear had been realized.

Ever been arrested? Does being grounded count?

Perino Poll

As we continue our ongoing team coverage of Dana Perino’s sequin-covered backpack, we may have had a shift in how she views her bag. The pack in question, which you can buy for $425  at Nordstrom, has been ridiculed by Fox’s Greg Gutfeld. Perino has worn the pack “with pride” the past few days, but recently, she tweeted, “been having second thoughts about backpack. but then get 5 compliments & change my mind.” A-HA! She admits that there are second thoughts, though. Since we’re here to help, we wanted to get YOUR opinion on the matter. We’ll let Dana know the results to our Fish Poll.



Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

“Senator, the pornographic material has been removed from your desk.” — the note that “Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she left in Sen. Al Franken‘s (D-Minn.) desk on the Senate floor. She broke the news to Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night.

Perino’s mesmerizing Pack

“The shiny backpack is memorizing [sic] to airport security. Looks great on he X-ray belt.” — Fox News Contributor Dana Perino. We’re pretty sure she meant mesmerizing. As some readers know, we’ve been having some fun with Perino’s sequined backpack this week after FNC’s Greg Gutfeld razzed her about it.

Yeah sure, Eddie

“Guy on bike actually hit me as I was running but my spidey senses kicked in and I was able to minimize the damage to my spinal cord.” — FBDC and The Blaze’s very imaginative Eddie Scarry. We’ll check for bruises later to make sure he’s okay.

Journo gets delayed by buggy, bonnet wearing woman

“Why yes, I did get delayed en route to Lancaster, PA, when I got stuck behind a horse-drawn buggy driven by a woman in a bonnet. America!” — The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball.

Leibo’s words of wisdom: ‘”Cartagena could be buzzword for wild behavior in political-roadtrip context. Usage: ‘The staff went all Cartagena at the victory party.’” — NYT’s Mark Leibovich.

Those were the days…

“Just reminiscing that when I covered the Clinton White House, it was the Secret Service that was embarassed [sic] by the president. Times change.” — CNBC’s Eamon Javers referring to members of the Secret Service purchasing prostitutes in Colombia.

Dolly Parton has a fan in the Washington Press Corps

“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’

“Epitome of #nerdhappyhour w/ @ZekeJMiller, @evanmc_s and @ethanklapper.” — Politico‘s Juana Summers. As most know, Zeke Miller works for BuzzFeed, Evan McMorris Santoro for TPM and Ethan Klapper is at HuffPost.

Yesha on the phone

“My friend on the phone, ‘I’ve had sex with 3 women’..umm…thanks for that info…you’re not my type…she’s ridiculous.” — D.C. web designer and blogger Yesha Callahan, who later added, “She’s such a weirdo.”

By the way…HuffPost‘s David Wood, who won a Pulitzer, has a fan at Politico. It’s his wife, Assistant Managing Editor Beth Frerking.

Cryptic Convo Between Two Journos

Politico‘s Jonathan Martin to no one in particular: “Why won’t xxx apologize to xxx for xxx.” And this: “Xxx is saying xxx bc they don’t want to talk about xxx.”

Leibovich to Martin: “It’s a sign of desperation.”

Martin: “Mark Leibovich, it’s sad that xxx is turning to desperate negative attacks…’sad’ is good. ‘disappointing’ my fave. ‘unfortunate’ not bad.”

Leibovich: “Jonathan Martin, I’m finding all of this deeply troubling. I’m desperate to change the subject.”

Fish Poll Results: Yesterday we asked what you thought of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz‘s (D-Fla.) new hairstyle and color. Most of you like it. In fact, 60.23 percent chose “Love it. She looks good with straight hair.” A reader named “Gussley” wrote in the Comment Section, “Hair, like chests, should be neither too big or totally flat on a woman.”

Peter Ogburn contributed to this report.


What’s Dana Tweeting?

It’s time to peek in on what Dana Perino of Fox News is tweeting these days. So far, she seems to be very comfortable with over-sharing her thoughts on random topics as they pop into her head. Today, we are focusing on the must-have accessory of the season: The Perino Pack! Over the weekend, Dana tweeted that fellow Fox News friend and colleague, Greg Gutfeld, made a crack about her backpack.

A backpack covered in sequins for Princess Perino? If only we could get a look at such a monstrosity. Oh, wait. Perino tweeted out a pic of the pack for us to ridicule enjoy. We’re no fashion critic, but it’s pretty bad. It’s like a backpack screwed a rainbow and gave birth to this monstrosity. While she thinks Greg was being mean, we think he might have been trying to stage an intervention. Perino is unfazed by his taunts and later tweeted, “I felt humiliated at first when @greggutfeld ridiculed my backpack in front of everyone but now I wear it with pride (and good posture).”

Whatever you say, Dana. Wear it with pride if you wish, but we’re with Gutfeld on this one. That’s a fugly bag.

What’s Dana Tweeting?

When last we left Dana Perino of Fox News, she was doling out complimentary advice to would-be hoteliers on how to run a proper establishment. We have to admit, we are THOROUGHLY enjoying the Twitter feed of Perino since we started paying closer attention to it. While she may be best known as former Press Secretary to President George W. Bush, her interests go well beyond the realm of politics.

So, you might be asking yourself, “What’s Dana Tweeting?” Well, we’re here to help. Today, we find Dana in “dismay” over her lunch option.

Dismay may be a strong phrase for this situation, but we feel you Dana. Cottage cheese, better known as the “trailer park of cheeses” with pineapple? I wouldn’t eat that unless you covered it in bacon and cheese! And what about Greg Gutfeld? He gets Dana’s sloppy seconds?

The dismay was so severe that Dana moved on to some retail therapy.

Amen, sister! We’ve been preaching about the dangers of jean shorts for years now. And just because something is “back in style” doesn’t mean it’s worth wearing! The people in my local coffee shop look like genuine lunatics with their handlebar mustaches, skinny jeans and fedoras. It’s at the point where I wouldn’t even think twice if I saw some hipster walk in wearing full lederhosen. We have your back on this one, Dana. Stay away from the jean shorts unless you want to go clown from the neck down.

FNC’s Greg Gutfeld: Without Me HuffPost Would’ve Been Boring and Arianna Knew That

Either host of FNC’s’ “Red Eye” Greg Gutfeld thinks highly of himself or nothing of his former boss Arianna Huffington.

In the LAT‘s weekly feature “The Sunday Conversation” this weekend, Gutfeld discussed his three year stint blogging at HuffPost from 2005 to 2008:

You wrote for the Huffington Post in the early years, including a mini cartoon series making fun of Arianna Huffington. You essentially called her a hypocrite for not paying writers. How did you get away with that?

“I was pretty much their first blogger, because I was blogging from England and my posts showed up hours earlier than everybody else. Once I got in there, it was impossible for Arianna to get me out of there because I was fun mold. If you removed me, the HuffPo became boring and I think Arianna knew that. If I wasn’t there, the Huffington Post probably would have collapsed under its own self-seriousness.”

Here’s one of the cartoons Gutfeld did on Huffington.

Gutfeld no longer works at HuffPost and to date, it hasn’t collapsed.

FNC Hosts Psyched for CPAC Bathrooms

We  ambushed Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld and Andy Levy checking in to the CPAC hotel. And what were they most looking forward to at the conservative conference?  The speakers?  The panels?

Gutfeld couldn’t wait for “the hotel bathroom” (he “should have gone on the train,” but he didn’t). Levy, meanwhile, was most excited to “watch him use the hotel bathroom.”
