Journo love

“Alex Burns. Maggie Haberman. We love you both.” — MSNBC’s Alex Witt on Sunday afternoon to guests of the program Politico‘s Burns and Haberman.

Is Jason Linkins a 13-year-old with a drinking problem?

“Damn it! I promised myself that my ‘work bourbon’ would last until the New Hampshire primary was over.” — HuffPost‘s left-wing media reporter Jason Linkins spent the weekend trying to be Hunter S. Thompson and failing miserably. On Sunday morning he adds, “The winner of this debate is vodka.” Still later he says simply, “Drink” and links to a music video. 

Huntman’s Mandarin falls flat

“I was in the press room, actually, last night during that debate and the press kind of erupted into laughter at that so I’m not sure that moment went over very well.” — RealClearPoliticsErin McPike on MSNBC Sunday afternoon in response to a question on Jon Huntsman‘s use of Mandarin in Saturday night’s debate.

HuffPost reporter gets shout-out from Eva Longoria

“Eva Longoria just retweeted me. I mean, that’s cool.” — HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery.

Bad form: Reporter RT’s himself

“RT @MikViq: Basically, Romney is saying that IF he could correct the SuperPAC ads he would, but since he hardly knows these people, he can’t.” — NBC’s Michael Viqueira. To be fair, Viqueira is not a serial self RTer. This is the first act of this nature that we’ve seen from him. But why do this ever?

JMart pricks Newt, Pinocchio and WaPo

“Love that Newt is still turning to washpost Pinnochios [sic] as pushback. Plays well in Laconia.” — Politico‘s Jonathan Martin.

Muffin metaphors

“Ever since Peggy Noonan called Newt Gingrich ‘an angry little attack muffin’ all I see is a screaming blueberry muffin when he talks…” — MSNBC Contributor and Daily Beast Columnist Meghan McCain.

WaPo‘s conservative issues blogger Jennifer Rubin assesses the weekend: “Loser: Diane Sawyer winner: people who can’t stand Huntsman.. he’ll be gone soon.”

Ball puts debate moderator’s hair on notice

“John DiStaso wins Best Early-State Mullet category.” — The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball of the Union Leader reporter who helped moderate the NBC debate Sunday morning. And FNC “Redeye” host Greg Gutfeld suggests this: “After debate, David Gregory’s hair is having brunch with John Huntsman’s hair.”

Sick designer on the loose

“Throat hurts + fever + headache + congestion = me today :-( #justshootme.” — Washington Business Journal Designer Timothy Wong. (This was Sunday; hopefully he’s on the mend today.)

Erick Erickson issues “apology” to ABC

“Dear ABC News, I was wrong. You set the bar for stupid so high in last night’s debate even NBC did better than you.” — RedState.com’s Editor-in-Chief and CNN Contributor Erick Erickson.

Headline on a story by CBS Political Director John Dickerson on Slate: My Baloney Has a First Name, It’s M-I-T-T

Weekend drive-thru

“Wendy’s drive-thru in Vienna, VA. Apparently, tonight, this is how I roll. #suburbanadventures #withajrbaconcheeseburger” — Capitol File Editor-in-Chief Kate Bennett.

QUOTES of the DAY


“I hope the wait means the food & beer are good.” — former TBD Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry in a Thursday tweet from Moab, Utah, where he is in the above photograph. Buttry “checked into” the brewery  on Foursquare. A big thank you to his wife, Mimi, for sending along this picture of Buttry among the buttes. Buttry boasts that he was called “Butthead” long before the real one ever existed.

Arianna, Arnold and sleep

“Arnold, 2009: ‘You only need to sleep six hours and then you have 18 hours left.’ Turns out he should have slept more.” — HuffPost/AOL‘s Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington in a Thursday tweet.

Europe bound

“Off to Ireland ….” — NBC’s Norah O’Donnell in a Thursday tweet.

“I refuse to click the AP wire story slugged: ‘AP-BC-US Baby-death-microwave.’ — Politico Special Projects Editor Russ Walker in a Thursday tweet.

Irritated journalist

“There’s a special place in hell for whomever added me to this latest PR database. No, I don’t want to interview ‘social media gurus.’ — NPR’s Andy Carvin in a Thursday tweet.

Peculiar sequence of events…

The gist: The White House stands by its decision to leave the paper high and dry but has some fancy explanations for it.

Wapo apologizes to the Israeli Prime Minister: “We meant ‘Binyamin,’ but we wrote ‘Benjamin.’ Sorry, Mr. Netanyahu.”
