QUOTES of the DAY
Weekend Sighting: Bloomberg’s Jim Snyder and The Hill’s Alex Bolton at Standard, a beer garden on 14th Street NW, drinking German beer and eating soft pretzels.
NBC’s Luke Russert: “The pug is not impressed by his new pillow.”
What comes around goes around
“Trips me out when folks write me a snarkly tweet, then get an attitude when I return the favor. Like they can only do it.” — Washington Watch’s Roland Martin in a weekend tweet.
More Weiner fallout
“As a former Weiner myself, that’s my maiden name, I definitely sympathize with him.” — CBS’s Nancy Cordes on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday.
Father of the Year material, right?
“Promised to take daughter off wife’s hands today. Promised daughter adventure. Thinking B’More aquarium.” — National Review Online‘s Jonah Goldberg in a weekend tweet. Perhaps at some point private matters can be kept at his house so the daughter isn’t perceived as a bother.
Alter gives Abramson the nod
“I’ve known new NY Times editor Abramson since college. She’ll be terrific and she worships right thing—reporting.” — Bloomberg Review writer and NBC News Contributor Jonathan Alter in a weekend tweet.
Journo has message for Senate Chief of Staff
“Note to Senate Chief of Staff who left their @nationaljournal mag at gym: you want to rip off address label before you leave it on the bike.” — Roll Call‘s Shira Toeplitz in a weekend tweet.
Finally a message from Washingtonian‘s Garrett Graff that’s relevant, not pompous or otherwise unnecessary: “Metro is doing bag searches in Woodley Park. It’s an even dumber policy when you see it in action.”
The modern alarm clock
“I love my iPhone with a new, profound depth. Four — count em — four alarm apps got me out of bed today.” — WaPo‘s Social Media Producer Katie Rogers in a Monday morning tweet.
Will the Washington Post ever get tired of photographing and quoting perpetual protester Medea Benjamin? — Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) Speechwriter and Political Advisor Amanda Carpenter in a weekend tweet. Benjamin is co-founder of Code Pink.
