Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) on C-SPAN this morning. He also gave a big shameless push for his Twitter following, saying he’s in a big push to tip over 40,000 followers.

Astrology anxiety

C.S. Lewis causes Monday stir with D.C. journos

The saga concerning author C.S. Lewis started like this: Politico‘s Ben Smith: “5 yr old devastated by ending of The Silver Chair. #cslewis.” Then deep thinker extraordinaire, The Nation’s D.C. Bureau Chief Chris Hayes, jumped in, saying, “@benpolitico those books changed my life at exactly that age.” (Changed his life? Of course at five-years-old, the age when most people really try to find themselves.) The Daily Caller‘s Mike Riggs, however, jumped into the conversation in a Monday tweet to second the sadness of the books, saying, “@chrislhayes @benpolitico That series serves as a dry run for life’s more epic disappointments. Rem. asking mom if all of them were sad.”

Journo confronts the unexpected

“I have mashed potatoes in my hair. What a day.” — Social Media Producer Katie Rogers in a Monday tweet.

She thought she left it behind when she moved here from Chicago.

Moe Tkacik and Lindsay Lohan

“I am about as rehabilitated as Lohan, and less “employable.” I keep a lower overhead, at least.” — Former WCP‘s Das Krapital writer Moe Tkacik wrote Monday when asked if she’d been rehabilitated (not in the alcoholic/drug sense, but on Robert Stacy McCain featured above).

Speaking of, um, dorky decisions…

“I’m finally going to get serious about Google Reader. Not a New Year’s resolution though; it would never happen that way.” — WCP‘s Benjamin Freed in a Monday tweet. > Update: A sassy Freed got snappy and declared, “I don’t mind you calling me a dork, Betsy, but I wrote that tweet last Thursday.” (Fine, Freed, you wrote the tweet last Thursday. We humbly stand corrected. We didn’t, however, call you a dork. We called your decision “dorky.”)

Middle of the Night Banter

What are journalists like in the wee hours of Election Night?

WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart remarks on his facial hair after a follower scolds him, saying, “OMG, @CapehartJ, you’ve got scruff! #MSNBCafterdark. ” He replies. “LOL. Not my shaving day.”

Donald Edmond, attorney, who wants to take over Politico by starting a publication called Common Sense 2012: “@FishbowlDC You realize you’d overtake Politico in this town if I wrote for you FT right? Black Republican in DC w/humor and insight.” (Note to readers: Edmond is an anti-trust lawyer we were Twitter “arguing/discussing” with well into the morning.)

ABC’s Rick Klein: “@karentravers I will sleep only when @berman14‘s hair gets out of place.” (Travers is an ABC White House reporter; Berman is an ABC News correspondent.)

Beck is divisive.” — an excerpt from NYT‘s Mark Leibovich‘s Wednesday profile on FNC’s Glenn Beck.  The story appears in print Sunday in the NYT Magazine.
