Yes, I'm inside his mansion. In Tripoli! But we're headed to a shelter...I'll ring back later."

David Brooks, columnist, reacts to a job offer in the Obama White House; he was later informed that it was part of a joke orchestrated by Newt Gringrich (top center) in retaliation for Brooks' earlier statements about him.
"The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming!"
May 16, 2011 at 2:42pm
"Hello, Intrade? Yeah.... BLUE HORSESHOE LOVES NEWT GINGRICH."
"AEI's buffet is open, and it's free!"
May 16, 2011 at 2:44pm
Newt just agreed to let me narrate his and his wife's next educational video. Ha! That'll show Krugman who the real intellectual is!
May 16, 2011 at 2:45pm
Don't tell me you're not in the building Krugman, I can see you!
May 16, 2011 at 2:47pm
Gotta go, my friends are waiting--we're playing Navy SEALs.
May 16, 2011 at 2:53pm
"I just said something with conviction, I gotta get away from here!"
May 16, 2011 at 2:54pm
Mr President! David Brooks here -- haven't got much time, can't explain. But if anything happens to me, I just want you to know I voted for you!
May 16, 2011 at 2:57pm
"He's coming down now, right behind me! When I say 'Patio Man,' hit him in the face with the pie."

"Ailes, I don't think I can keep pulling the wool over the eyes of these NPR hosts. They're asking questions!"
May 16, 2011 at 3:16pm
David Brooks; ducking the hard questions since 2003.
May 16, 2011 at 3:18pm
"I think Krugman just tapped my shoe in the bathroom stall!"
May 16, 2011 at 3:19pm
Crikey! Is that a bipartisan compromise I see?

Quasimodo clears a path for his beloved Esmerelda.

The call is coming from inside the Speaker of the House...
May 16, 2011 at 3:45pm
I would just take from Brooks directly, you won't be able to beat it. How about -- "Relax, We’ll Be Fine" -- for starters?
May 16, 2011 at 4:03pm
"Hey, just had lunch with Paul Ryan....I know! I know!
May 16, 2011 at 4:37pm
"OMG! He mentioned Edmund Burke and Reinhold Niebuhr. I'm going to write the column now: 'Republican Virtue is Not Always Personal Virtue.'"
May 16, 2011 at 4:40pm
Sorry, I forgot to add a second quotation mark in the above entry. Well, scratch me off the list.
"You're shitting me? Shields is DEAD? Do I get top billing starting this Friday?"

"Brooks reacts after Gingrich touches his leg under dinner table."
May 16, 2011 at 5:13pm
Thomas Nagel? On the line for ME?
May 16, 2011 at 5:16pm
Do you believe his head's even bigger in person!
May 16, 2011 at 5:47pm
It can't wait till Saturday I expect to be gone.
May 16, 2011 at 5:52pm
Oh crap, it's Jon Chait. If he sees me here inside the Koch mansion I'll end up in one of his snarky posts.
May 16, 2011 at 5:57pm
"I'm not the product of my conscious thinking. I'm a social animal!"
"I'm on my way to see Daley. Don't tell Krugman."
"That's what she said! By 'she' I mean Margaret Thatcher."
May 16, 2011 at 5:59pm
Do you think Chait
will take the bait?
May 16, 2011 at 6:02pm
"I am in position now, when Krugman comes downstairs I am going to so totally pants him"
May 16, 2011 at 6:03pm
Don't know if I'm allowed a second shot, but:
"Ok, I have to move fast -- it was dumb but I accidentally mentioned the New Republic and the alarm went off right away!"
May 16, 2011 at 6:17pm
"Mr. President? Newt is serious. Shit, he saw me. He knows I'm a spy. I gotta go...."
Roger, I am bailing out on the windbag...who should I support now?
May 16, 2011 at 7:02pm
"Help! The people are coming! The people are coming!"
May 16, 2011 at 7:03pm
"Get the camera up here. He agreed to an interview!"
May 16, 2011 at 7:34pm
What? You mean I was RIGHT about something?
May 16, 2011 at 8:34pm
So Newt gets annoyed and says "Stop focusing on my past. Focus on the future." I can't believe I said this but . . . "OK, when are you going to divorce your current wife?"
May 16, 2011 at 9:01pm
"I just used the word 'poop' in my latest column. This getting in touch with my evolutionary neurobiology is so liberating!"
May 16, 2011 at 11:22pm
"I have to use the toilet and I'm waiting to interview Newt. I find that if I bend over I can hold it longer."
May 17, 2011 at 8:46am
"OMG. Is that Paul Ryan? Honey, you won't believe who's looking directly at me! And my shirt isn't even tucked in. How embarrassing."
