Morning Chatter

Journo can’t resist Paula Deen interview

“Not that I’m watching this, but this Paula Deen interview is tough to watch.” — Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz, upon watching the chef on NBC’s “TODAY” Show this morning.

Awww…

“25 years ago this day, @DCrittenden1 & I were married. It feels still like it did then.” — The Daily Beast‘s David Frum.

Politico Playbook Publish Time: 9 a.m.

Journo Love (and Hate)

“Looking fwd to chatting today w/ show veteran @ByronYork — one of the few honest reporters re truth abt #amnesty Bill.” — Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.

On being late…

“Next time I’m late for something I’m just gonna say that I actually showed up one minute early, which will maybe fly for 3 hours.” — HuffPost Social Media Editor Ethan Klapper.

Reporter to millenials: ‘I love your passion’

“Tweet 30k goes out to all you brave millenials who had to take jobs you weren’t thrilled to accept right after college. I love your passion.” — Washington Examiner‘s Justin Green.

And now, something awful…

“Basing your self-worth on RTs and favorites is probably a terrible idea, but some days it works out OK.” — Jesse Berney, a progressive speechwriter who has written for HuffPost, Salon and the revolting Wonkette. Figures. How pathetic.

Anonymous to FishbowlDC: “Who’s going to adopt the Twitter handle @BenWhite’sunsentemails? Here’s one: ‘Dear John and Jim: If you ask me to write another thumbsucker on Friday night that we all know no one will read, I will ride that fucking Amtrak down there and wipe the smug off your faces with a flamethrower.’ That kind of thing.” — In response to a quote we ran from Politico‘s Ben White Tuesday, who said that the best emails are the ones that are never sent.
