Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

NBC Washington’s Angie Goff poses for a picture with actor David Arquette at the Elle/Lani Hay dinner at The Ritz last night. Partygoers remarked on how good he looks a year plus into sobriety.

“Heard at Midway after flight quarantined over passenger with rash: ‘I’ve had it with these mfing rashes on these mfing planes!’” — Politico‘s Roger Simon.

Haitian journos welcomed to WH briefing

“Good afternoon, everyone.  Thank you for coming to the White House for your daily briefing.  I want to welcome — we have a group of Haitian journalists here visiting.  I want to welcome you to the White House briefing room.” — White House Spokesman Jay Carney.

Prostitutes and Take Your Kids to Work Day rarely mix

“The roughly half-dozen kids were models of decorum. There they sat, on the sidelines of the briefing room, staring down at the floor. None asked a question. But they might have been thinking “Mom, Dad, when we get home tonight, you’ll have some explaining to do.” — ReutersMary Milliken in their late-afternoon “Washington Extra” newsletter.

Journos are people too?

“Puppy power. OK tweeps, who is the cutest ABC Pup? @winstontapper or @eliwalterwoof? @jaketapper” — ABC News Political Director Amy Walter, who appears to be a part of a bizarre journo trend of creating Twitter accounts for pets.

Reporter, ahem, laps up her evening

“Hill Country consisted of lots of dancing and shots and country music. My night ended w/ sitting on guy’s lap (dare), but #embash goes on.” — Greenwire‘s Jessica Estepa.

Overheard at the Elle/Lani Hay party at the Ritz last night: “Those balls are gynormous!” No word on whether the person was referring to a baby or a donkey.

Spotted at Elle party: Actor Robert Duvall‘s nephew, Teddy. He showed up last year, too.

USA Today’s Lindsey to Reuters

This just in…

Reuters announcing that USA Today cover story editor David Lindsey is moving to Reuters‘ D.C. bureau to be Washington Editor-at Large.

UPDATE: The internal memo from Thomson Reuters Bureau Chief Mary Milliken: “It gives me great pleasure to announce that one of Washington’s most accomplished  journalists, David Lindsey, will be joining Reuters as Washington Editor-at-Large, focusing on the top political and policy stories of the day, including the 2012 Elections. He will start on November 28 and will report to me. David comes to us after more than a decade at USA Today, where he was first National Editor and then, since 2007, Cover Story Editor, overseeing the newspaper’s premier enterprise package each day for print, online and mobile. Before that he had a 13-year career at The Washington Post, where he served as DC and Virginia political editor, Metro editor and reporter on Capitol Hill, among other assignments. David has a proven talent for making top stories journalistically strong, visually appealing and targeted to core audiences. We relish the prospect of him doing the same at Reuters.  Please join me in giving David a very warm welcome to Reuters and wishing him much success in this new challenge.”
