Quotes of the Day

Uh oh. Blogger calls Ann Romney b-word

“How many more times does Ann Romney need to come off like a bitch before she stops getting a free pass?” — liberal blogger Jimmy Zuma, who writes the D.C. Water Cooler for Technorati, a weekly column for the Tuscon Sentinel. He also writes for the blog Smart v. Stupid.

This is an awkward moment?

“That awkward moment when you wonder who that wonderful smelling guy is and realize you put on men’s cologne this morning.” — Nicole Young, recovering journo.

Reporter rethinks post-election R & R

“I’m changing my post-election vacation plans. Was thinking beach. Now I’m thinking padded walls and soothing music.” — Reuter‘s Sam Youngman, who also wrote within the last 24 hours, “The Ryan train is slowly but surely getting me closer to home and some clean laundry. Ohio today, Virginia tonight. #lovetheroad.”

God we miss ex-TBDer Julie Westfall

“The really important thing is that @ErikWemple beat @FishbowlDC on this.” — Ex-TBD hag Julie Westfall on WaPo Erik Wemple writing the story that the pub he used to the edit is officially finito. We’re glad Westfall, who has all the warmth of a Ginsu knife and was known for having difficulties getting along with her TBD colleagues, has her priorities straight on what is really important. Westfall was most recently working as an associate editor for KPCC.org at Southern California Public Radio out in LA. Though her¬† website doesn’t clearly reflect it, she just began a new job with Journal Register Company/Digital First Media, now home to a slew of ex-TBDers including Jim Brady, Steve Buttry, and Jeremy Binckes. Oh, and she loves news and loves Twitter! Congrats for that, Julie and the countless things you brag about on your website regarding all your revolutionary contributions to TBD. Update: WCP first reported the news of TBD‘s official demise at 2:42 p.m. Wemple came in at 3:15 p.m. and heavily cited WCP for previous reports on TBD, but never indicated they broke Wednesday’s news. Wemple’s story was significantly superior, included a first-person account and a quote and confirmation from WJLA’s VP and GM Bill Lord.

Journo seeks and gives guidance

“Earpiece no longer working on six-month-old iPhone. Suggestions?” — Slate‘s Dave Weigel. Also… attention editors: “A media org could do worse than to sublet an Ohio apt for a month and park a reporter there.”

Be safe BB!

“Good morning. Gorgeous morning here – heading out for a run-thoughts on the day?” — FNC’s Bret Baier.

Words to live by…

“One very important thing I learned about my job is that it is never about me or how lousy I was treated. But it is all about my cowboy boots.” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review‘s Salena Zito.
