Quotes of the Day

Jack Abramoff gives heartfelt thanks to book party guests.

Party Chatter

“Sometimes it gets a little depressing  to see your picture on the front of the Post.” — Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff in a living room speech at Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson‘s home last night. He called the party “one of the finest evenings” of his life in the past eight years. One thing’s clear: Sure beats federal prison.

“Not a chance!” — Carlson on giving a mid-party tour of his new house.

(Much more on the Abramoff book party later…)

Um, no

“Would it be cool if I got ‘Drudge Life’ tatted on my lower lip?” — Fake Jim VandeHei.

Oh what a surprise: Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff brags about himself. “The CIA (!) reviewed @thethreatmatrix this week in its in-house journal, calling it a ‘reading pleasure.’”

Resumé Gems

“Don’t overlook me.” — FBDC applicant in a cover letter.

Bio of the Day

NJ (soon to be USA Today‘s) Susan Davis: “I’m a reporter. Despite that, people seem to like me.”

Like father like daughter: The art of self-pimping

“Self-promo alert: Blast from the past! Back to my old stomping grounds at DC’s NewsChannel8 to appear on @LetsTalkLiveDC on Wed in 11a hour!” — The Hill‘s Howeesha (a.k.a. Judy Kurtz, daughter of the illustrious Sexy Daily Beast Howie).

Emily Miller‘s new gossip column, “Emily’s Post” launched on PoliticsDaily.com today. Miller, who’s held gigs with ABC, NBC, for Condoleeza Rice, Tom DeLay, Rick Lazio and Colin Powell addresses her past in the press as well as the ongoing drama surrounding her reputation as a “woman scorned” in the Jack Abramoff scandal in her debut column.

“Having been fodder for every gossip column in town, starting today I’m turning the tables — and becoming one D.C. gossip columnist who fully gets what it’s like to be on the receiving end,” Miller says in her premier post.
