QUOTES of the DAY
A “Juicebox Mafia” Passover: “It’s beginning to look a lot like Pesach,” Center for American Progress fellow and liberal blogger Matt Yglesias wrote in a Monday tweet accompanied by the beautiful photograph above. He also wrote, “Preparing a seder dinner is giving me a newfound appreciation for the efforts of Jewish homemakers throughout the ages.” And this: “How does Manishevits [sic] manage to make such bad wine? It’s way off the charts.” Traditional spelling of the wine is “Manischewitz.”
“Things I don’t like to hear from my cab driver: ‘I remember you. I know where you live.'” — NJ‘s Susan Davis in a Monday tweet.
Luke watches Lifetime?
“After the #Sabres #fail I’m drowning my sorrows in #williamandkate on Lifetime. I’m only going to watch 1 scene.” — NBC’s Luke Russert in a Monday night tweet. Lifetime aired “William and Kate” last night, the love story of Prince William and Kate Middleton. We hope Luke enjoyed the scene where, after a big break up, Kate jumps in the water and swims to William while he stays dry on the dock.
Buttry’s apathy toward Royal Wedding
“Things I care less about than a royal wedding: No, can’t think of anything.” — TBD Community Engagement Director Steve Buttry in a Monday tweet. Good thing he’s not doing what he does in the UK — you know, not a very engaging thing to say.
A presumably urgent question
“Hey, Vegas folks: Can someone report whether @mattapuzzo is alone at a bar, wearing a tiara & telling folks it’s his birthday? Thnx!” — AFP‘s Olivier Knox in a Monday tweet about AP investigative reporter Matt Apuzzo. Apuzzo responds, “If only. I’m at my kitchen table eating Cheerios and prepping for work.”
Trump Hair Joke of the Day
“Is there any person on the planet ignored more than Trump’s barber?” — Syndicated op-ed columnist and FishbowlLA Editor Tina Dupuy in a Monday tweet.
A blogger’s beer recommendation
“The perfect springtime beer.” — Washington Examiner‘s political blogger Lachlan Markay in a Monday tweet paired with this picture.
Dana Perino aspires to color-coordinate like Laura Bush
“Not much happenin’, so I’m organizing closet, switching out winter for spring. Color coordinating like @laurawbush, super-organizer.” — FNC Contributor Dana Perino in a Monday night tweet.
Journo takes in spring
“It’s 71 degrees outside still and marvelous; I’m taking my office to the courtyard. Thank you, Washington, D.C., this is sort of spring.” — Politico Assistant Editor/Web Producer Jedd Rosche in a Monday tweet.
Fake Jim V. gets threatening
“Oh for chrissake andy, never say that again” — Fake Jim VandeHei in a reactionary Monday tweet to Politico‘s Andy Bar who writes, “Greta’s sweet spot.” Barr’s referencing FNC’s Greta Van Susteren who writes, “Bill Ayers calls Senator McCain a WAR CRIMINAL.” We also liked this one from Fake Jim: “Staff, I appreciate everything you do. But if we don’t win a goddamn Pulitzer this year get ready for a summer without air conditioning.”
“I realized on the drive home that the reason Pulitzer coverage is interesting is that the stories are tinged with desire and envy.” — Steve Myers, managing editor at Poynter.org.
