What Passover is all about, right? 

“Guess how many Passover seders I was invited to tonight? 0. Because the media isn’t run by Jews. It’s run by bad Jews. My grandfather used to tell me I wasn’t jewish enough & that my mother & father were awful parents. But the joke’s on him bc he’s dead now.” — Mother Jones Engagement Editor Ben Dreyfuss.

“If your face looks just like that of Anne Frank & you have the body of a 12 year old boy, I’m just not that into you.” — Sydney Elaine Leathers, ex-sexting partner to failed New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner.

After getting Twitchy’d, Josh Barro defends his tweet about U.S. Airways


“This is so stupid I don’t even know how to explain why it’s stupid to someone who doesn’t understand how stupid it is.” — NYT‘s Josh Barro.  Honky Tonk Infidel replied, “Yes @jbarro there is something dumber than @TwitchyTeam. And if you fetch a mirror, you will find it.” Barro: “A stupid mirror?” The Guardian‘s Ana Marie Cox tried to comfort him, saying, “It will pass, the site’s contributors have the attention span of… hey did you realize it’s called ‘Twitchy’?” See Twitchy item here.
