AnonymASS Tipster of the Week

This little dollop of hate comes to us from London. The person writes, “Jesus Christ. You can’t name somebody and describe them as a ‘longtime source.’  Somebody who is always so self-righteous and defensive really should brush up on their basic journalistic conduct.” Sorry, AnonymASS you lost me at Jesus.

Tweets from Heaven

“Mike, we miss you.” — @Stacynam regarding Mike McGrath, Politico‘s V.P. and Publisher who died on Monday morning.

Quote taken out of context

“Man if I was in DC, I would totally bike up to your house right now & watch it w/ me / make ur love life awkward” — Labor Journo Mike Elk to journo Tim Shorrock.

This note was unfortunately sent to a Washington female journalist on Twitter. We won’t say who, but she might RT it. “I wanna f–k you…they say republicans have good p–y.”

From the Dept. of Bragiculture

“@AnnCoulter is the only pundit that is not emotionally tied to a candidate and actually offering us logical analysis” — RT by Conservative Commentator and author Ann Coulter.
