QUOTES of the DAY
Unlike Clinton’s Reines, NRSC flak drinks D.C. tap water
“Not sure its newsworthy but FWIW I like to keep it interesting and drink the DC tap water.” — NRSC Spokesman Brian Walsh in a Tuesday tweet. He’s making fun of the WaPo profile written on Sec. of State Hilary Clinton flak Philippe Reines, who, for the profile offers the writer “helpful” tips on “color” about him. One of the stupider examples is that Reines doesn’t drink D.C. tap water.
Weiner’s ‘ultimate blow‘
“BREAKING: In ultimate blow, Dem leadership forces Weiner to pull his self-nomination for The Hill‘s ’50 Most Beautiful’ contest.” — Politico‘s Patrick Gavin in a Tuesday tweet.
Politico reporter attended same high school as Gov. Christie
“Chris Christie’s interview with Piers M. was conducted at my (his) high school. Didn’t love it there but glad to see it.” — Politico‘s Jennifer Epstein in a Tuesday tweet.
“Things won’t be the same around here without @frates, a real gentleman who always proves that chivalry isn’t dead.” — Politico‘s Amie Parnes in a Tuesday tweet. She’s referring to Chris Frates who’s moving to NJ.
“First Weinergate, now Hef calls off wedding hmmm …” — CNN Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry in a Tuesday tweet.
Sklar’s charge: Few women in Page One
“I loved Page One. It was a great documentary. But it was depressing how few women made the cut, to speak, from the NYT and outside.” — Mediaite Editor-at-Large Rachel Sklar in a Tuesday tweet. Page One gets screened in D.C. tonight with a Q & A with some of the documentary’s stars.
A brief episode of The Nerdy Shore
“Looking for a good aftermarket power adapter for my two-year-old Macbook. Anyone particularly enamored by theirs?” — WaPo liberal blogger and Nerdy Shore cast member Ezra Klein in a Tuesday tweet.
Reporter falls for his soup
“I love you, Chicken Enchilada Soup from Chili’s.” — The Atlantic‘s Joshua Green in a Tuesday tweet.
“I cannot get my hands around this whole Weiner story…” — Comedian Ali Wentworth in a Tuesday tweet. She’s the wife of ABC GMA Host George Stephanopoulos.
Unnecessary Tweet of the Day
“Did not realize that patch-covered heavy-metal jean vests were called ‘battle jackets.'” — Reason Associate Editor Peter Suderman in a Tuesday tweet. Neither did we, Peter, and we still don’t care. You may think we’re insulting you, but it takes talent to win this award. Just ask Metro Weekly‘s Sean Bugg, who has filled this slot many times.
