Best Quotes From the Weekend Shows 12.20 – 12.23

ABC’s “This Week” - “George, he has contacted a foreign country and said, I will sell you classified information for something of value.  That’s what we call a traitor in this country.”  - Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) on Edward Snowden’s letter to Brazil.

CBS’s “Face the Nation” - ”A whistle blower doesn’t run.  A whistle blower does not disclose information that has nothing to do with what he says his cause is, which is the privacy and civil liberties of Americans.”  - Former CIA Director Michael Morell on Snowden.

“Fox News Sunday” – “Well, he said it in a way that would be a little more probably appropriate for the duck woods than it would be for the pages of a major news magazine.”  - Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” – “I don’t think about the presidency. I think about the job that I’m doing at the moment.” –  IMF managing Director Christine Lagarde on running for President in France.

CNN’s “State of the Union” -”They said hey Joe, we’re OK with the bill. We like the bill. The bill is not bad at all. We can live with that. But we just don’t trust government stopping and doing what we say we’re going to do.” – Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on the failure of his background check bill.

PBS’s Washington Week – “There may be a strong feeling, not a unanimous one, that they should concede the phone program; let the phone companies keep that in the name of preserving other parts of the intelligence community’s efforts, especially the ability to look at overseas Internet communications, which they frankly think are more important.” – NBC’s Pete Williams on the intelligence community’s attitude towards reforming the NSA.

BTV’s  ”Political Capital” – “These incredibly important programs -Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security -are not sustainable in their current form. We’ve got to get at those.

Religion, ‘Evil’ Slip Into Media Reports on Shootings

It’s not just FNC’s Mike Huckabee who injected religion into the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school. He was just more explicit about it.

The dust had barely cleared before Huckabee blamed the incident, at least in part, on the secularization of schools. “We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools,” he said on FNC Friday. The remarks made news and some in the media criticized Huckabee for what they saw as an oversimplified view.

But conservative commentator Erick Erickson said nearly as much in a column for RedState today. Erickson referred to the shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, as “an evil creature” and said “liberal pundits” who “mock” religion “have chosen the very society that generates the heinous act we saw on Friday — a society replacing ourselves and our standards with those of God.”

But the word “evil” itself, a word often associated with religion, has been bandied about to describe what happened Friday and not just by conservatives… Read more

Mike Huckabee Might be Tone Deaf

Just in time for a softer, gentler GOP, Fox News host Mike Huckabee is coming out with a new book. It’s called, Dear Chandler, Dear Scarlett: A Grandfather’s Thoughts on Faith, Family, and the Things That Matter Most. 

Published by Penguin Group, it’s written as a series of “heartfelt” letters to his two young grandchildren and includes advice for people about the “common beliefs” that “bring us together as a nation.”

Does Huckabee realize the R’s LOST last night? Has he been talking to Karl Rove? Think of this as a cherry atop that loss.

Anyhow, our favorite tidbit of advice involves love and marriage… Read more

Morning Chatter

QUOTES of the DAY

“You can’t hear me. Isn’t that convenient?” — MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Wednesday night during an interview in which he snapped at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on immigration policy. Brewer said she couldn’t hear him and questions were translated through a third party. Needless to say, something was lost in translation.

Yoohoo Robert Allbritton, you listening?

“I’m not a TV person. They don’t give me a fancy wardrobe budget, I’m a real American.” — Politico Executive Editor Jim VandeHei on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday morning. During the segment, Mika and Joe ragged on him for his black New Balance sneakers. Above is how he responded.

Wisdom is…

“People say dumb stuff constantly. Do you read Twitter???” — BuzzFeed Political Editor Ben Smith.

Vandalized?

“Rising GOP star Mia Love’s #Wikipedia page vandalized overnight with racist and sexist slurs fxn.ws/OsaMsm” — Fox News. Was the page stabbed?

GOP Convention Security Vs. The Media

“I swear to god they change the security check points every hour to fuck with the reporters.” — Salon‘s Irin Carmon.

In a moment of sister solidarity…

“I want to know WHO the sister SECRET SERVICE AGENT is who is assigned to @PaulRyanVPshe has a cute BOB! FIERCE! Do it girl! #sistersupport” — Sophia Nelson, columnist for USA Today, Essence and theGrio.com.

As well as true admiration…

“@GOPconvention security guy just told me he’s hit the beach in Clearwater every day this week#RNC2012 #imdoingthisallwrong” — Roll Call HOH’s Warren Rojas.

Gov. Christie noshes on the media

“I understand that folks in the media have nothing better to do but to do that stuff they want to see controversy I understand that because these conventions have become per packaged shows and you all want have something different to talk about.” — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in a Wednesday night interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan on the floor of the Republican National Convention on the extreme critiques of his speech from the night before.

John Harwood needs lifetime supply of Rolaids

“How spell relief? Fixing audio prob, finishing convo floor live shot 1 sec before delegates start nat’l anthem. #nickoftime #rolaidsmoment” — CNBC and NYT’s John Harwood. In December of 2011, he had another R-o-l-a-i-d-s moment when he wrote, “Nothing spells relief like being late for a school concert — to find you are just in time for your kid’s performance.”

Gwen’s pen explodes

“When u watch my @NewsHour intvu w @marcorubio tonite, know an ink pen exploded all over minutes before cameras rolled. #glamor” — PBS’s Gwen Ifill.

Ryan Speech Fallout

“Oh fuck Ryan listens to Zeppelin too, oh fuck how did he turn out like this?” — InTheseTimes labor journo Mike Elk.

Reporter admits spoiled ways

“I’m so spoiled riding in motorcades with the roads closed, I’m now sitting in traffic not understanding why the police don’t clear the way.” — Politico‘s Ginger Gibson.

Star Sighting: Sissy Spacek

“In other news, pool reporter spotted actress Sissy Spacek standing outside Obama’s campaign office in Charlottesville today.” – HuffPost‘s Jennifer Bendery.

Huckabee now ‘wallows’ in the media

“Oh it’s true, I’ve fallen from the high perch of politics and now I wallow in the mum of the media, but I still know as a country we can do better.” — Fox News host Mike Huckabee rips not one but two of his careers in a speech last night at the GOP Convention.

 

 

Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

Journo stops to tweet touching moment

“Sitting on porch with Fix Jr as nice wind blows and temps in 70s. Hard to imagine a better day.” — WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza.

Important Question to Ponder: “Is there an episode of Three’s Company that does NOT revolve around some misunderstanding?” — Politico Senior Political Reporter Jonathan Martin.

Journo Snobbery

“NYT reporter nxt to me rolls eyes when I say I work for huffpost, then pulls out pen and paper as I pull up Tweetdeck #thisisnewmedia #wsf12.” — HuffPost‘s Rebecca Searles.

Weekend travel woes

“I’m within mere moments of an @ABC7Stephen-style Amtrak breakdown.” — CNN’s Matt Dornic on Friday night Amtrak ride between New York and D.C. referring to ABC 7 Correspondent Stephen Tschida who once had an unforgettable journey between D.C. and Philadelphia.

Speaking of train complaints…

On Sunday night, CNN’s Lizzie O’Leary was aggravated by different things aboard the train: “BRING BACK THE OLD CHEESE PLATE. #Amtrak,” she wrote. And this: “You, bro on the cell phone, are in the Quiet Car. Where I do not mess around.”

Actress was ‘well spoken’

“Talked to actress Gabrielle Union at the Komen kick off. She was well spoken, addressing the Planned Parenthood controversy head on.” — Washington Examiner‘s Nikki Schwab. So what did Union, who lost a friend to cancer, say that was so eloquent? The quote: “Since she passed my sense of urgency has greatly expanded and increased — it just sucks.” Schwab “reported” that Union “didn’t flinch” when asked about the recent Komen/Planned Parenthood controversy. “I can say as a proud Democrat that I don’t bat an eyelash supporting Komen and I don’t bat an eyelash supporting Planned Parenthood because ultimately their goal is the same: saving women’s lives,” she said. That’s a lot of still eyelashes, right, Sticky?

Baier remembers deceased colleague, puts sons in matching outfit

“Happy Birthday to our friend Tony Snow.. he would have been 57 today. We miss him!” — FNC’s Bret Baier on Snow, former White House Press Sec. and Fox News anchor, who died from cancer in 2008. In less touching news from Baier… he dressed his boys in matching outfits over the weekend and then tweeted it out for the world to see. Fortunately, he said, he didn’t have to wear the same outfit. Really, fortunately? We’d have paid good money (well, maybe $10) to see the picture of the whole fam dressed head to toe in matching frocks. Kind of like that horrible Mike Huckabee family photo fiasco.

Reporter enjoys teeny bopper musical influences.

“May have to #WIrecall that ‘Call Me Maybe’ song. Just caught myself starting to car jam to it. Fortunately Waka Flocka intervened.” — Politico‘s Dave Catanese.

Comm Director Has Frustrating Fios Weekend

Heritage Foundation’s Comm Director Rory Cooper can’t say enough against FiOS.
“Going on four weeks of major @FiOSTV fail. 3 wks no on demand. 2 days of reset every 10 mins. Can’t even watch it anymore. Argh.” Cooper added, “We get this screen and then full reset every 15 mins on @FiOSTV Maddening. @VerizonSupport.”

Stanton’s stance on England’s Jubilee

“I’d rather smoke bath salts with Jeffrey Dahmer than watch the queen’s #jubilee.” — Roll Call‘s John Stanton.

Peter Ogburn contributed to this report.
