Death Of Pardoy Watch

Comedian Stephen Colbert, at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner:

Here's how it works: the President makes the decisions. He's the Decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Just put 'em through a spellcheck and go home.

Actual reporter Joe Curl of the Washington Times, responding to a blogger who yelled at him for not being more critical of some sketchy poll numbers he quoted Karl Rove using:

And it was a news article, numbnuts. Rove said, I wrote. Get a clue. I'm a reporter, dillhole.

(Incidentally, I am provisionally in favor of the insult "dillhole," because as far as I can tell it's pure nasty-sounding onomatopoeia, rather than being a bigoted slur like most of our swears (including many of the other terms Curl uses in his correspondence).)
