Sunday Panels: Only Males Need Apply

Do you have a penis? Do you know a little something about politics or can you at least fake it? Then the Sunday morning political talk show circuit is for you. This Sunday features a particular abundance of testosterone on Fox News Sunday and most of the other shows. Each week we’re going to keep tabs on the gender breakdown of the panels and guests and see who regularly invites females on their shows and more importantly, who doesn’t.

Good Morning FishbowlDC Readers

QUOTES of the DAY


A belated but heartfelt Happy Birthday to NRSC Spokesman Brian Walsh who, according to Politico’s Playbook, celebrated at Hill Country last night. We’re running a picture of his dog, Rudy, because any excuse in a good excuse to run this pooch sitting pretty in his faux L.L. Bean Shearling jacket. By the way, we understand Walsh was given the trendy Shake Weight as a gift. The free weight works your triceps, shoulders, even your chest. Visit here if you want to know more.

Henneberger freelancing for TIME

“Closing my first piece for TIME. And when is the last time I spent even a DAY working out of an office? (A: I don’t think my kids even remember it!)” — Former Politics Daily Editor-in-Chief Melinda Henneberger in a Wednesday Facebook update. She’s writing a few freelance stories for the magazine.

Something unusual in Washington: An all-female roundtable

“It’s a fine collection of women.” — MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist in reaction to TIME‘s Rick Stengel saying he’d prefer to be in Washington this morning with the all-female roundtable of Mika Brzezinski, Norah O’Donnell, BBC’s Katty Kay and WSJ Columnist Peggy Noonan. Brzezinski was in Washington Wednesday night for a speaking engagement for her book, Knowing Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What You’re Worth.

D.C. Rule of Thumb

“Rule of Washington dinners: where two congressmen speak, one will for a few too long, God bless him.” — National Review Online’s Kathryn Lopez in a Wednesday tweet.

Journo Movie Watching

“Am at the part in “Broadcast News” where Bill Hurt is smiling as he watches himself, fake tears on his cheeks, in his own date rape newscast.” — Politico‘s Maggie Haberman in a Wednesday tweet.

The Critic

“FYI: All marital splits are a ‘long-time coming.’” — Politico‘s Patrick Gavin in a recent tweet.

The Observer

“Nothing makes your day like a Capitol Police officer chastising a cabbie for barreling through the crosswalk.” — The Takeaway’s Capitol Hill radio correspondent Todd Zwillich in a Wednesday tweet.

What makes Ratigan a New Yorker?

“When the smell of urine on the sidewalk no longer bothers you.” — MSNBC Host Dylan Ratigan, who was in Washington for the WHCD last weekend, in a “21 Questions” feature for New York Magazine. Read the entire interview here.

A quick convo between two journos

Politico Media Coordinator Stefanie Christensen: “Why do female Hill staffers refuse to blowdry their hair?? have you noticed this phenomenon?”

Politico CLICK writer Karin Tanabe: “I certainly have and it is all kinds of wrong. Wet hair = only okay at the beach or during the Nirvana years.”

Washington Life’s Most Invited – Which Journos Made It?

<img alt="iStockglass cornucopia255.jpg" src="/fishbowlDC/files/original/iStockglass cornucopia255.jpg" width="250" class="alignright" hspace="3' vspace="3"/ Washington Life has released it’s “Most Invited” list and here are the Washington journalists who made the A-List. We must say, no big shockers. But one question: Where the hell is Tammy Haddad?

Haddad, a who’s who around town, is spotted at many a party and hosts her annual Garden Party, one of the most sought after soirees of the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner weekend. But she didn’t make the cut. As we reported yesterday, WL Executive Editor Michael Clements poked “fun” at Haddad’s grey hair stripe during a dinner at Blue Duck Tavern Tuesday evening by making the hair streak a place on Foursquare. We do sincerely hope her hair isn’t what kept her off the list, as it seems a rather petty, inappropriate reason to exclude her. We’re also not convinced it was that “fun” of a thing to do the other night.

We’ve asked Clements for comment on how decisions about the list were made. Stay tuned…

The List: CBS’s Rita Braver, NBC MTP Host David Gregory; BBC’s Katty Kay, VF’s Christopher Hitchens; BBC’s Katty Kay; Politico’s Mike Allen; MSNBC’s Chris Matthews; NBC’s Norah O’Donnell; WaPo’s Sally Quinn, Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger and FNC’s Chris Wallace.

> Update: Clements has replied. It’s heavy on Washington speak, but he has some points to make – like 12 of them. Check out his verryyy long quote after the jump. Many thanks to Clements for his response. In all his remarks, he had no comment on Haddad not making the list…
