By Betsy Rothstein Comment

“They are creepy creeps who don’t know they got a problem.” — CNN Contributor Ana Navarro on “New Day” this morning regarding New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner remaining in their respective race and political position.

“Anybody that says ‘TMI’ to me on twitter is failing at the internet.” — Daily Beast columnist and “Raising McCain’s” Meghan McCain. But can she maybe cut down on the exclamation points? “I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S SO COOL!!!! So proud (tomorrow is the last day of filming, emotions are at an all time high)!”

The Media Observer

“By my count, Pres Obama has held 123 press availabilities since taking office of which 24 were formal, solo WH news conferences.” — CBS White House Radio Correspondent Mark Knoller.

Forget happy hour. Try anchovies!

“Certain days can only be fixed with anchovies at 2 Amys.” — Washingtonian Style Editor Kate Bennett.

The Media Observer

“Wolf Blitzer right now doing some hard reporting on ‘BEYONCE’S NEW DO.'” — Mother Jones Washington Bureau’s Asawin Suebsaeng.
