Late night, Chinese food

“U know its gonna be a late night when a huge chinese food order on a cart makes its way into the capitol. Senate staying late 2 leave 2nite.” — CNN’s Dana Bash in a Wednesday tweet.

Twitter peer pressure

“Trying to get my colleague @natashalennard to tweet some more. She seems skeptical. #mustapplysomeclassicpeerpressure.” — Politico‘s Amie Parnes in a Wednesday tweet referencing her new Click coworker Natasha Lennard.

Oprah and Beck – an Aha! moment

“That’s where the Winfrey comparison falls apart. You could never imagine her joking about poisoning the speaker of the house or talking about choking the life out of a filmmaker or fantasizing about beating a congressman “to death with a shovel” (as Beck did for Nancy Pelosi, Michael Moore and Charles Rangel, respectively). Beck is divisive.” — an excerpt from NYT‘s Mark Leibovich’s Wednesday profile on FNC’s Glenn Beck.  The story appears in print Sunday in the NYT Magazine.
