Quotes of the Day — To the Right
Breaking bread with terrorists
“At an extravagant penthouse apartment in downtown Chicago, The Daily Caller dined with former terrorists Sunday night.” — The lede to The Daily Caller‘s Jamie Weinstein’s story on Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson’s dinner with former Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn. The Daily Caller posse included Carlson, Weinstein, Big Journalism Founder Andrew Breitbart, a Daily Caller contest winner (a female who, so far, remains anonymous) Carlson’s brother, Buckley, and Weekly Standard senior writer Matt Labash. Read the story here. Carlson also went on WMAL’s “Morning Majority”: “At one point Bernadine compared the United States to Nazi Germany because of course she did! … I am appalled by them, but she is smooth,” he said. Best line: “I’m sure I somehow caught Syphilis from that dinner.” Listen to the full interview here.
A question posed to Breitbart online: “What’s your favorite name you’ve been called on Twitter?” He replied, “‘Fat Reich Wing Fascist Racist Faggot’ is synthesis of the online leftist argument against me. Variations on that theme.”

Bio of the Day — Stephen Hayes: “I am not the guy who writes for the Daily Standard. So please stop sending me tea party stuff. I follow a variety of issues mostly nuclear or missile related.” (As D.C. journos know, Stephen Hayes writes for that right wing mag more commonly known as The Weekly Standard.)
Scribe is disgusted by coffee
“I don’t drink coffee, never have. I’ve had most of 2 cups in my life, couldn’t finish them & sips of all sorts of doctored versions. #Gross” — Townhall columnist and radio host Derek Hunter. Explaining further, he adds, “Coffee is warm, dirty water that you can’t make taste good. No matter what you add to it, the underlying flavor is warm, dirty water.” On a completely different note, Politico media blogger Dylan Byers tweets a story he wrote on a “Pew survey finds more media bias.” To which Hunter cracks, “Must’ve read your shit.” (Sidenote: Byers was scheduled to go on the Bill Press radio program this morning. He showed up FINALLY, but was extremely tardy. Stay tuned…we’ll inquire and see if he has any decent excuses. UPDATE: Byers overslept. Seriously, VandeHarris let you get Zzzzz’s? UPDATE 2: He had an iced coffee in tow, which means he was late and actually STOPPED for it.)
