The Luke & Jake Show

Don’t these guys have text for cheeseburger conversations?

As if online conversations weren’t demented enough, here we have Politico‘s Jake Sherman seeking cuisine recommendations from his BFF Luke Russert, NBC’s Capitol Hill Correspondent. (No doubt the Russert-loving and pathologically deranged* Noreen Malone of The New Republic will consider this post “pathologically vicious” because posts about cheeseburgers or dragonflies just are vicious. Too bad Noreen doesn’t actually do her homework before writing puff pieces? Luke did engage in light self-promotion by tweeting and retweeting his “Dateline” Debut 38 times in February 2012. Pointing that out was just, well, factual.)

Onto the conversation. Even Ellie Hall of BuzzFeed and Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green felt compelled to chime in.

SHERMAN: “Any restaurant recommendations in Modesto?”

RUSSERT: “In and Out Burger.”

SHERMAN: “Weak.”

ELLIE HALL: “Um, In-N-Out Burger is always the right decision.”

RUSSERT: “No @ellievhall it’s that @JakeSherman just wants to expense more than $12 bucks to @politico”

JUSTIN GREEN: “Sweet bros.”

SHERMAN: “I’m tight w company dollars. But I’m a no carb man.”

*Hey Noreen, let’s have lunch! Shake Shack?
