Quotes of the Day  – Herman Cain Edition Part Deux

Holy sh&$ they missed it?

“I’m on a train and haven’t seen the Cain press conf yet. Was it really that terrible as my Twitter stream seems to indicate?” — Human Events‘ infamous ambusher Jason Materra.

“Will be on an underground train during Cain presser. I understand that my entire career is at risk because of this.” — Yahoo! News’ Chris Moody.

The Atlantic reporter goes on Canadian TV to discuss Mr. C

“Just went on Canadian TV, where I was asked what I think ‘aboot’ Herman Cain.” — The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball.

And the good news is…

“The one thing that can be said about Romney is no one would ever accused him of making sexual advances…including Mrs. Romney. #Robot” — Townhall.com contributor and periodic radio host Derek Hunter.

Stalking journos

“The Hilton hotel chain will not release any information about Herman Cain’s stays or upgrades at their hotel.” See here. — National Review Online‘s Jim Geraghty.

“It is gross that the press is going after Cain’s family. Still the question about his wife’s height is something we gotta check out.” — Slate and CBS’s John Dickerson.

It’s Caining Women

“Dangerous for Cain to say he has no memory of ‘this woman.’ If any connection demonstrated, it will be…inconvenient. #ItsCainingWomen” — Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief David Corn.

Cain family pimping? So far, out of the question

“I’m also glad Cain didn’t have his family up there. You can’t say stay away from my family then pimp them for a photo op.” — Washington Watch’s Roland Martin.

Where’s Mark Sanford when you need him?

“Fox, please, for the sake of all that is good, bring in contributor Mark Sanford for his analysis.” – Politico‘s Alexander Burns.

Talking jive with Conroy

“Also should be noted that I have weirdly been known to confuse jibe with/jive with.” — RCP‘s Scott Conroy.

Journos poke fun of Cain’s third person usage

“A reporter named Sam Youngman has a lot of unanswered questions #funwiththirdperson” — The Hill‘s (soon to be Reuter‘s) Sam Youngman.

“Ron Fournier finds it a bit sketchy when people talk about themselves in the 3rd person.” — NJ Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier.

Premiere Vs. Premier

“Like @RealClearScott, I have many pet grammar peeves and one surfaced in a release today: The use of ‘premiere’ to mean the best. #premier — Las Vegas political TV reporter.” Jon Ralston.

Journo on mend after dental surgery

“Oral Surgery 2 week check up: very good! Return to normal eating habits! I’m so happy!!!” — C-SPAN’s Jeremy Art.

Bio of the Day: She dined with the Prez. Does Michelle know?

Roll Call‘s Christina Bellantoni: “Christina Bellantoni has covered Washington, D.C. for Talking Points Memo, The Washington Times, and Roll Call. She has helped TPM and Roll Call expand exponentially, including by securing TPM a place in the White House Correspondents Association and the White House press pool. She has dined with the President, profiled Michelle Bachmann, and has appeared on TV numerous times, including times on Fox, Friends, and Countdown with Keith Olbermann. She will also discuss how the media landscape and political journalism has changed thanks to social networking and technological tools.”

UPDATE: Bellantoni wrote in to clarify a couple things. First off, as an Institute of Politics fellow at Harvard this fall,  the blurb above is from one of her undergraduate student liaisons to advertise her weekly study group via Facebook and via internal Harvard list servs.  Secondly, there is a student typo, which she had them correct weeks back – it should read Fox & Friends. Duly noted.

All in a day’s work

Editor falls prey to office treats

Spotted: WaPo‘s “The Fix” reporter Aaron Blake outside the Grand Hyatt Tuesday morning, where he had attended NJ‘s year-out political event. He slipped into a taxi and promptly put on his seat belt.

Herman Cain: Lover of short women?

Say it isn’t so

Quotes of the Day

Schieffer’s crush on Paltrow intensifies

CBS “Face the Nation” Host Bob Schieffer completes Politico‘s “Answer This” interview in which he answers the question, “What would you attempt to do if you knew that you could not fail?” His reply: Gwyneth Paltrow. Read the full interview here. Re-read FBDC’s Matt Dornic‘s FishbowlDC interview with Schieffer from Friday in which he also discusses Paltrow. In that interview he called Paltrow his unfulfilled item from his bucket list. Even journalists like Gawker’s vulgar Jim Newell are starting to talk. “Bob Schieffer seriously wants to bang Gwyneth Paltrow.” Come on Newell, this is Schieffer for God sakes. Show some respect.

National Review campaign correspondent Jim Geraghty (who, in dim lighting, could pass for Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift‘s cousin) remarks, “Oh, Facebook, just stop it.”

Is Roland Martin game for Dancing With the Stars?

“I say we start a campaign to get @rolandsmartin on #DWTS next season!” — An Orlando-based Roland Martin follower named LaRon Hickman. Looks like the “Washington Watch” host and CNN Contributor doesn’t object — he did proudly retweet the notion.

Washingtonian Editor reads at least three newspapers

“Today’s my 1st day as a 3 newspaper household (NYT, WP, WSJ), which I realize is 3 more than the 17 neighbors in my building get combined.” — Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff. Congratulations?? We hope he doesn’t become a hoarder. A better question: How many of those neighbors read Washingtonian?

Late-night ‘retard’ insensitivity with Dan Riehl

“OK, I know sum [sic] people hate the word, but Barry looks like the class retard in this pic.” — BigGov Contributor and blogger Dan Riehl. See the picture of President Obama here.

This won’t go over well at the office…

“I think it’s funny that @FoxNews’ resident anti-LGBT pseudo-shrink @KeithAblow has the word “blow” in his last name.” — Syndicated columnist and progressive radio personality Karl Frisch.

Help! Fix Howie’s Teleprompter!

Funny, we didn’t think National Review Contributing Editor Jim Geraghty bore any clear resemblance to Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift. But who knows? Maybe CNN “Reliable Sources” Host Howard Kurtz had spun himself around so many times that he didn’t know who was who.

On his Sunday program, Geraghty and Clift planted strange smiles on their faces as Kurtz introduced them to America as each other. Chicago Sun Times‘ Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet got to play herself.

Howie’s flub: “Joining us now, Lynn Sweet wash bureau chief and columnist for the Chicago Sun Times, Eleanor Clift, contributing editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast and a panelist on the McLaughlin Group and Jim Geraghty, contributing editor at National Review.”

Geraghty took a moment away from getting his hair cut today to talk to FishbowlDC. He said he knew the error was happening, but didn’t think it was a big deal. “Are you really going to write about this?” he asked. (Well, of course we are. What does he think I’m doing on the phone with him? I used the silent trick and waited for him to say more.) “Out of the corner of my eye it looked like they were flipped. Not much you can do about it. I’m sure it’s not the biggest snafu I’ve ever seen in cable news. I’m sure most people at home can figure it out. I look forward to this fascinating and in-depth article.”

The photographs above are Geraghty’s and Clift’s parade of awkward faces as Kurtz introduced them. In the moment, Clift seemed to take the whole thing in stride, as if to say, ‘Who cares? So I’m Geraghty today. Anyhow, Howie…’

NRO Subscribers Get Quite a Jolt

Apparently, the links in National Review Online‘s morning email “Jolt” are sending readers to porn sites.

Jim Geraghty, in a post tagged “I Hate Mondays,” says the version of the email he sent to editors was fine, but the link-shortener used must have converted the links into portals to some unsavory content.

Not to worry. A new email will be sent to subscribers, and “The Powers That Be have been notified.”
