White House Pooler Interviews Springsteen

TIPS FROM THE POOL, INTO THE DEEP END

NYT‘s Helene Cooper is a lucky duckling. Today she got to interview none other than Bruce Springsteen.

“Pool was able to interview Springsteen on the tarmac, after he alighted Air Force One, with his wife, Patti, from the rear of the plane. Asked if this was his first trip on Air Force one, he said yes, then started grinning. ‘It was pretty cool,’ he said. He said he chatted with the president during the fligjt [sic] about the effect of Sandy on New Jersey. ‘I’m feeling pretty hopeful,’ about the chances that the Jersey shore will recover.”

Guess Bruce is feeling pretty good about changing his mind about performing for Obama on the campaign trail.

Morning Chatter

QUOTES of the DAY

ATTENTION SHOPPERS: “They’re just like us!”HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery with the accompanying photograph.

Geraldo’s drunken Yom Kippur

“I’m filled with profound introspection for Yom Kippur fast- drinking baccardi rum and coke zero (no fruit) I am delirious drunk and starving” — FNC’s Geraldo Rivera rolls in with the anti-Yom Kippur. Way to go Geraldo! You better start now for next year.

A warning to drunken journos

“D.C. police will begin administering breath tests for suspected drunken drivers on Sept. 28, mayor’s office says.” — Washington Examiner‘s Alan Blinder.

Arianna has a sweet time in Italy

Chuck Todd admits he’s biased

“I’m biased about Yom Kippur .. I love the holiday because the idea of atoning is just a refreshing way to soul cleanse.” — MSNBC and NBC’s Chuck Todd.

Tips From The Pool…Into the Deep End

“Motorcade left Kent State at 6:37 for the drive back to the airport. One member of the crowd outside Kent State held up a thumb as if requesting to hitchhike with the motorcade, which, alas, did not stop.” — NYT‘s Helene Cooper in a Wednesday evening White House Pool Report.

Christiane has a polyp 

“Unfortunately I’ve got a polyp on my vocal chord which I am having removed Friday. Wish me luck and a healthy voice!” — CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

Funniest mispronunciation this week: CNN “Reliable Sources” Howard Kurtz‘s pronunciation of the surname of State Dept. Spokesman Philippe Reines: Rinds (as in pork rinds). The actual pronunciation of the “Fuck off” spokesman is Rains. But who knows, maybe Howie was sending a deeper, subliminal message. The screwup came on the heels of Reines blasting CNN for revealing contents of the diary of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi.

Ass-y lawyer calls out CNN’s Hamby on Twitter

“@PeterHambyCNN Enjoyed speaking to you for the Ohio article. I’m Mark Weaver, not Mike Weaver. thx.” — Mark R. Weaver, Esq. Really Mike? Did you ever think to just email Hamby and not be such a d–k on Twitter?

Morning Chatter

BREAKING: Cricket in WH Briefing Room

“A chirping cricket in the White House briefing room…at first i thought it was an iPhone! Tune in to hear her (and me) on @GMA…” — ABC News White House Correspondent Jake Tapper.

Travel Bitches

“Boarded flight to DFW on time. For an O’Hare layover, it wasn’t bad. Nowhere to sit, but we got pretzel dogs.” — JRC’s Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry. But everything wasn’t hunky dory. Mimi Johnson, Buttry’s wife, wrote, “Texting from the back of the plane with Steve Buttry, who is in the front of the plane. It seems that we agree #unitedsucks.”

Former Hill flak calls congressman a dumb racist

“So having the not very smart/racist congressman Steve King call you a better vp nominee than Sarah Palin is a good thing- right?” — former 21-year Hill flak Jim Manley, now a Senior Director at QGA Public Affairs.

For obvious reasons we couldn’t resist this from Mother Jones’ David Corn: “I was going to go fishing tomorrow. But I’ve canceled the trip because I’m too exhausted after fishing today. #ARomneyExcuse

Congressional flak endures Vegas red-eye

“So tired, couldn’t even be bothered to fear for my life during intense turbulence. Kept waking up and thinking, ‘Well….we had a good run.’” — Erica Elliott, Comm. Director for House Maj. Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on the red-eye from Vegas this morning.

“This episode [of] intervention is making me never want to drink again.” — Townhall‘s Kate Hicks.

WH Pooler kept too far away

“Pool is being kept too far away to hear what’s being said — courtesy of roller coaster just behind. Big hug for one woman, who spoke earnestly to Potus for around one minute. He is slowly making his way from one group of people to the next, taking pictures with babies and chatting. Hands on hips. But pool too far away to hear.” — NYT‘s Helene Cooper at the Iowa State Fair Monday.

Morning Lust: FLOTUS Still Finds POTUS Sexy

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END


In a White House Pool Report by NYT‘s Helene Cooper filed late Tuesday night President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama made their feelings for each other plain at a fancy NYC fundraiser at Gotham Theater. They’re still hot for each other. And if that thought makes you uncomfortable, you might not want to read the mushy details.

She: After announcing that they hardly get to travel together anymore, she spoke of how he has changed, saying, “The only difference I’ve noticed is the salt is starting to catch up with the pepper. I think it’s sexy.”

He: POTUS thanked Flotus. “You notice how she’s getting cuter. She is remarkable and it’s the reason why I’ve got remarkable kids. I have improved my gene pool.” He said that “it’s true this is the closest we get to a date, which I’m going to have to fix in about 14 months. Now the truth is, this is not my idea of a date night, normally our dates do not end with me being before 400 of our closest friends.”
