It’s 3:34 a.m. Do you know where your reporter is?
“Jerk @DCPoliceDept officer — working the wreck I-395 near Cap Hill — told friend and me in cab ‘idiots’ like us cause these accident.” — The Daily Caller‘s Alex Pappas.

Tragedy and celebration in Warrenton
“WARRENTON, Va. (AP) – Virginia State Police say 1 pilot dead, another injured after crash involving 2 planes.” — HuffPost‘s Ethan Klapper tweeted this. In happier news, Warrenton was also the site of this weekend’s nuptials between NBC “MTP” Executive Producer Betsy Fischer and Politico Senior Reporter Jonathan Martin. Congratulations to Fischmart on their wedding. We hope all the wedding planning paid off.

“@dceiver i have to say, strip away the fun snark, sounds like you liked the show! (Ssshh. I wont tell anyone)” — ABC’s Jake Tapper, who hosted “This Week” on Sunday, referencing HuffPost‘s Jason Linkins, who writes up the Sunday shows. After getting through as much of Linkins’ Sunday roundup as we could bear, yes, he does suck up to Tapper about how smart he is throughout. But he also inexplicably runs a tweet by Salon‘s extraordinary Alex Pareene twice. God knows why. We just hope Pareene still sports his porn star mustache.
