Sally Quinn Is Not Finished With You, Desiree Rogers

by Jim Newell

Historic Washington Cocktail Party Host Goddess Sally Quinn, the first columnist in Washington Post history to be fired for writing bad columns, has been spending some of her free time on the Twitter machine after finally busting it out of husband Ben Bradlee’s locked scotch cabinet and refilling its gas tank.

Here she takes her Twitter Victory Lap over not-of-Washington Desiree Rogers’ resignation, which people like… Sally Quinn… and maybe another person or two… have been demanding for weeks. We don’t really get this Twitter either, but we’re not punny. Let’s go with “Older lady calls younger lady a whore” and never check Sally Quinn’s Twitter again.

Actually, let’s check Sally Quinn’s Twitter tomorrow and every day thereafter, because she may write something funny.

Well Sally, we can’t all Tweet for a living.

An American in Toronto March 1, 2010 at 7:34 pm

Blah, blah, blah, Sally Quinn (who I only remember from being regularly bashed in the old SPY magazine)

What about this!:

donner_froh March 1, 2010 at 7:35 pm

Just wait until that pig-in-the-parlor Irishwoman Quinn discovers that Rogers is not white. Then there will be hell to pay.

Jim Newell March 1, 2010 at 7:36 pm

[re=522316]An American in Toronto[/re]: Oh jesus. How could he let the New York people down like this?

rocktonsammy March 1, 2010 at 7:37 pm

That black Ford ain’t running in New York.

Potater March 1, 2010 at 7:37 pm

Sally Quinn is not a SHIThead, but a shitHEAD.

The socialites in DC all live in huge glass houses, I hear.

Hooray For Anything March 1, 2010 at 7:39 pm

Here’s my twitter twit: The Washington Post fired Sally Quinn this week when they realized she was not a Society HOSTESS but a Society HO.

Tommmcatt March 1, 2010 at 7:49 pm

[re=522324]Hooray For Anything[/re]:

How long after a series of indiscretions does it take before a “ho” simply becomes a mean old society lady?

Alex_P March 1, 2010 at 7:52 pm


Each and every single one of Sally Quinn’s tweet contains just as much information as an entire Sally Quinn column!

Alex_P March 1, 2010 at 7:57 pm

[re=522334]Alex_P[/re]: Apparently I don’t know the plural of “tweet”. For shame. :(

(P.S. It is “twats”, or sometimes “twittles”.)

“the first columnist in Washington Post history to be fired for writing bad columns”

Oh, Jim, you make my shrivelled little heart glad with joy!

norbizness March 1, 2010 at 8:05 pm

[re=522324]Hooray For Anything[/re]: You see, Sally Quinn forgot she was a no-talent BOSSFUCKER instead of a NO-TALENT bossfucker.

JooJoo Bee March 1, 2010 at 8:07 pm

[re=522320]Potater[/re]: Now THAT’s editing.

lemprika March 1, 2010 at 8:10 pm

I think Sally is just upset that it never dawned on her to gate crash the fiesta. I wonder if anyone will try to crash her son’s nuptials.

imissopus March 1, 2010 at 8:13 pm

That’s teach that uppity Negress to think she can be a social anything in Sally Quinn’s Washington.

As if I needed one more D.C. pissbag to loathe with the white-hot intensity of a supernova. Damned Wonkette.

populucious March 1, 2010 at 8:16 pm

Sally Quinn was fired from the Washington Post when they realized they had hired a DELUSIONAL TWIT instead of the SOCIETY COLUMNIST they were hoping for.

Judas Peckerwood March 1, 2010 at 8:19 pm

Dumb as a (Washington) post.

Hooray For Anything March 1, 2010 at 8:20 pm

[re=522330]Tommmcatt[/re]: I think now that she’s lost her column, she’s lost her special “Ho” powers and is just a mean old society lady now. Like when a super hero is stripped of their powers and has to live life as a normal person– if the Obama’s don’t show up at her society functions she no longer has the power to write column after column trashing them and make unimportant administration officials resign.

BuddDwyer March 1, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Pretty soon, she’ll be sending smoke signals.

Out of her ass.

Is there no limit to her HO-dom?

digibal235 March 1, 2010 at 8:40 pm

I guess she was getting a little to UPPITY for Ms. Sally’s taste and had to be put out with the FIELD NEGROES.

“pig-in-the-parlor Irishwoman Quinn”

It’s a real shame you had to use this before St. Patrick’s day.

SayItWithWookies March 1, 2010 at 9:08 pm

I’d love to see the painting of the wicked, petty bitch with a face like an old saddle that I’m absolutely certain is hanging in Sally Quinn’s closet.

Lionel Hutz Esq. March 1, 2010 at 9:09 pm

Well, it is about time someone teaches Desiree Rogers that you are nobody in DC until you steal some old powerful guy from his wife.

AxmxZ March 1, 2010 at 9:15 pm

It’s kind of like that time that gossipy twat Sally Quinn lost her job when it was pointed out to her that she was failing at writing non-retarded things that people would want to read, at which point she turned to Twitter.

honkyman March 1, 2010 at 9:21 pm

Despair not, she’ll still be writing the Internets edition of “On Faith”, whatever the fuck THAT is.

“Sally and I have agreed that the column will return to what had been its original focus on faith, family and entertaining and will appear online at ‘On Faith,’ a section of that Sally guides,” Brauchli said in a statement.

Hooray For Anything March 1, 2010 at 9:33 pm

[re=522391]AxmxZ[/re]: Those who write, write. Those who can’t, twitter

grevillea March 1, 2010 at 9:41 pm

Sally’s just bitter about having to put on a sari to sneak into WH dinners.

Mr Blifil March 1, 2010 at 9:43 pm

In the seventies Sally figured out she wasn’t a BLOWJOB queen, she was a blowjob QUEEN.

S.Luggo March 1, 2010 at 9:49 pm

Quinn’s tweet is why I hold true to both the First Amendment and involuntary commitment.

ladymacbeth March 1, 2010 at 10:20 pm

today is “assholes who seriously need karmic intervention” day.

or “DC: just like hollywood only less important.”

BuddDwyer March 1, 2010 at 10:26 pm

Sal’s under the table again, but now she’s on Twitter!

Georgetown lives!

BuddDwyer March 1, 2010 at 10:31 pm


Sally made a tweet!

S.Luggo March 2, 2010 at 12:12 am

Ben, open source.
— sometimes I feel like my apartment is just the place where my shoes live and when I come home they’re like “hey bitch, we’ve been fabulous”

One Yield Regular March 2, 2010 at 1:39 am

What a thoroughly gratuitous, completely unnecessary, revealingly crass thing to say – as if Emily Post had been a tea-bagger.

richardwb1 March 2, 2010 at 2:06 am

“Sally can’t dance no more, Sally can’t get off of the floor.
She can’t dance no more, Sally can’t dance.
…but in spite of all the amputations,
she still listens to the rock and roll stations.”

Sally Can’t Dance

Smoke Filled Roommate March 2, 2010 at 2:13 am

..and white (yes, WHITE!) shoes WELL AFTER LABOR DAY!

Rachel Ray Jihad March 2, 2010 at 2:22 am

Is there any bigger sack of rat-jackal-pig-dog shit than Sally Quinn? What an utterly useless slag. She could barely put together a column, wrote like a high school mattress-back sniping at people who fucked lesser men than she did, and never had an inappropriate thought or comment that she kept to herself.

ella March 2, 2010 at 8:19 am

Here, Sally. Lap up a bowl of milk for breakfast. Treetz later.

PsycGirl March 2, 2010 at 8:40 am

[re=522391]AxmxZ[/re]: as opposed to Sarah Palin, who turned to Twitter when it became clear that she failed at SAYING non-retard….OOPS, mentally challenged things that anyone wanted to hear.

germansteel March 2, 2010 at 9:43 am

At least there’s no commonly accepted known fact that Desiree slept her way to her job.

The Silver Fox March 2, 2010 at 10:03 am

[re=522356]imissopus[/re]: The Help was just getting a little too big for her britches in the esteemed opinion of Ms. Quinn.

Red Zeppelin March 2, 2010 at 10:05 am

Today we are all Georgetown society matrons!

llibra March 2, 2010 at 10:40 am

[re=522321]Cookie Guggelman[/re]: Oh no, Sally doesn’t merit the C word. She lacks the warmth and the depth.

(I stole that from a commenter on I can’t remember what blog. In that case it was Liz Cheney who didn’t merit the C word. I love it.)

Flanders March 2, 2010 at 11:16 am

Shockingly mean.

Decker March 2, 2010 at 12:23 pm

[re=522466]S.Luggo[/re]: Too bad WP and print media are going down faster than Sally Quinn on a boss husband. Otherwise they could hire Meg McCabe to fill their pages with her wit and bounty.

Long Form Def Certificate March 2, 2010 at 12:41 pm

Sal needs to take a lesson from that other noted wallet-chaser, Anna Nicole Smith, & expire.

edgydrifter March 2, 2010 at 1:24 pm

[re=522334]Alex_P[/re]: Truly, it’s like a drunken slattern fractal.

desertwind March 2, 2010 at 2:27 pm
