Quotes of the Day


HuffPost White House and Congressional Reporter Jennifer Bendery: “Hill reporters using their greatest weapon against mean Capitol Hill officer telling us to leave!” She posted the above photograph of Capitol Hill reporters from last night.

‘Steamed Greta

A commenter from our story yesterday, “Steamed Greta Comes to Ed Henry’s Rescue” wrote, “‘Steamed Greta is also a Swedish breakfast dish.’” We had no idea.

Assessing Ezra’s shiny TV lips

“Umm, is @ezraklein wearing a diamond shine pink lipgloss?” A popular follower of Washington media types @emokidsloveme in a Thursday night tweet after watching our Ezzy on MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell‘s “The Last Word.” She said Klein is likely wearing Mac Lusterglass and explained, “It’s a type of lipgloss, it’s got micro glitter flecks in it for that diamond shine when you’re talking to Lawrence O’Donnell.” This is not preposterous. Back in January, Mediaite‘s Editor-at-Large Rachel Sklar also suggested Ezra might wear lipgloss on TV.

Yes, there are dumb questions

“Dumb question of the evening: What’s the mood on Capitol Hill tonight?” — CBS White House Radio Correspondent Mark Knoller in a Thursday night tweet.

Double the fun with Sean Hannity

“Double-dipping w/ @seanhannity today – radio show this afternoon, TV show in mere moments. #thencanigohome #doubtful” — Sen. Rand Paul‘s (R-Ky.) Spokeswoman Moira Bagley in a Thursday tweet.

A desperate plea

“ATTENTION UNNAMED SOURCES: Return My Freaking Phone Calls, Please.” — Conservative blogger and former TWT Editor Robert Stacy McCain in a Thursday tweet.

The Observer

“This is by far the most insane situation I’ve ever seen folks in all my years on Capitol Hill. #debt” — Roll Call‘s John Stanton in a Thursday tweet.

Interns come bearing cupcakes

“Interns in the office finish up today… and just brought in sweets from Georgetown Cupcake. Well played, interns. Well played.” — Military TimesDan Lamothe in a Thursday tweet.

Unnecessary Tweet of the Day

“Baking in apartment sans AC = not fun. (And yes, I think this is a completely necessary tweet. It’s hot.)” — Roll Call feature writer Jessica Estepa in a Thursday tweet. Previous tweets about her lack of a pantry and an iPad being referred to as a “mobile device” earned her the award in recent days. How hot her apartment is still unnecessary, but a note to Metro Weekly‘s Sean Bugg: She’s gaining on you!

Reporter closes down House Gallery

“Last person in my House gallery for #debtmageddon, so CSPAN volume down, @parksandrecnbc volume up.” — Politico congressional reporter Marin Cogan in a Thursday night tweet.

Scribe reacts to Christie fat jokes and remarks

“What I learned in doing a Twitter search on Chris Christie: People are cold.” — Jen Connic, Social Media Producer for the Star Ledger in Newark, NJ, in a Thursday tweet. Unfortunately we thought NJ meant National Journal. We regret the error.

Gym time: ruined

“Grrr. Gym experience ruined by two gossipy, cackly queens. Not even cute, either.” — The Guardian’s Matthew Wells in a Thursday tweet.

QUOTES of the DAY


Whose got the ugliest, most loathsome facial/neck/seeping into chest hair in America? Meet America’s non-journalist Ian Murphy, the Buffalo Beast’s prank caller who appeared on MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Wednesday night. Please, Murphy, buy a razor, this is terrifying.

Number of days since @DCJourno has tweeted: 9 (His/her last utterance was on FishbowlDC with this interview by intern Alec Jacobs. We don’t think Alec’s interview caused the disappearance, but we hope the anonymous D.C. tweeter will return soon.)

Tapper Block Watch

“This is spamming and if u keep doing it i will block you.” — ABC News White House Correspondent Jake Tapper to a follower named @Chani_11 Wednesday. Tapper is known for his no nonsense Twitter personality.

Prank on a prank

“Just got a call from David Koch. What does he want at this hour?:-)” — Syndicated columnist and Strategic Communications Strategist for Bullfight Strategies Karl Frisch in a Wednesday tweet.

Reporter wins the morning, noon & night

Politico‘s @mollyesque wins the morning/noon/night with Vanity Fair shout-out for her lede about Reid and hookers.” — Politico Deputy Congressional Editor Martin Kady goes all out in a Wednesday tweet “Win the BLANK” analogy about reporter Molly Ball, linking to this.

“Man” panel

“Im the least manly person alive, but what the hell/RT@LetsTalkLiveDC We’re gearing up for a “Man Panel”w/Adrian Loving @Bkownacki & @PWGavin” — Politico‘s Patrick Gavin in a Wednesday tweet. Fellow man panel members are Brendan Kownacki (“media adviser, strategist, producer, commentator and self-proclaimed futurist”) and Adrian Loving (self-proclaimed DJ, “social stylist” and graphic design professor. In 2009 he told Washingtonian that he dances in front of the mirror daily.)

TBD fallout

“And, the next shoe drops at @tbd: major layoff.” — Former TBD GM Jim Brady in a Wednesday tweet.

TBD has not failed. A venture has to be given a chance to succeed before it can fail.” — Robert Frost? Not really. These are the words of TBD‘s Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry.

“Really disgusted by some Tweeps gloating over what happened @TBD. We all work in the media. Any one of us could get laid off any day #awful” — The Washington Examiner‘s Nikki Schwab in a Wednesday tweet.

Jim Brady reveals true feelings about Mark Judge

“So let me get this right…Your biggest failing is not being the New York Press?” — Community Journalist Jen Connic in a Wednesday tweet to Jim Brady in reference to Mark Judge, who writes opinion pieces for The Daily Caller. Judge trashed TBD in a story Wednesday in which he wrote about applying to TBD for a job. Brady’s response to Connic: “Apparently. And that I didn’t hire him. He’s lucky I don’t publish the e-mails he sent me before I blew him off.” Another line from Brady: “Best is the “he’s an idiot” part followed by his desire for a job under said idiot. I think that technically makes him an idiot.” And this: “Damn, now I see my mistake. I didn’t listen to a guy who wanted a job at TBD despite my apparent hackery: Silly me.”

A scribe’s dishwasher nightmare

“All-day, Kafkaesque nightmare buying a Sears dishwasher today. And still not done installing it.” — Congressional Quarterly‘s John Donnelly in a Wednesday Facebook update.

Bret Baier: hooked on golf

“Watching the replay of the golf. Was trying to go to bed early but I am hooked. Can’t wait for good weather and green fairways.” — FNC anchor Bret Baier in a Wednesday night tweet. (Baier is more than a decent golfer. He lettered on four teams at DePauw University and is a member at Congressional Country Club.)

Necessary Tweet of the Day

“For the record, everything I type after 10 p.m. should be tagged #latenighttweet and considered accordingly.” — Metro Weekly Co-Publisher Sean Bugg in a vital Wednesday night tweet at 11 p.m. (This item was in direct defiance to Metro Weekly writer Chris Geidner‘s request.)

Media assoc. at war with her clothes

“Tried on seven different outfits this am. Bad way to start off the day.” — Rachel Slobodien, senior media associate at Heritage Foundation in a Thursday morning tweet.

The week in birthday wishes…

The Hill‘s Molly Hooper and TWT‘s Ben Birnbaum. Happy Birthday!
