Sally Quinn Is Not Finished With You, Desiree Rogers

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

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

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

    What about this!:

  • donner_froh

    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

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

  • rocktonsammy

    That black Ford ain’t running in New York.

  • Potater

    Sally Quinn is not a SHIThead, but a shitHEAD.

  • Cookie Guggelman


  • AnnieGetYourFun

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

  • Hooray For Anything

    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

    [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


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

  • Alex_P

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

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

  • Josh Fruhlinger

    “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

    [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

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

  • lemprika

    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

    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

    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

    Dumb as a (Washington) post.

  • Hooray For Anything

    [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

    Pretty soon, she’ll be sending smoke signals.

    Out of her ass.

    Is there no limit to her HO-dom?

  • digibal235

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

  • southern mark smith

    [re=522319]rocktonsammy[/re]: You can have any color Ford you want, as long as it’s black.

    “pig-in-the-parlor Irishwoman Quinn”

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

  • SayItWithWookies

    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.

    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

    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

    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

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

  • grevillea

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

  • Mr Blifil

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

  • S.Luggo

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

  • ladymacbeth

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

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

  • BuddDwyer

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

    Georgetown lives!

  • BuddDwyer


    Sally made a tweet!

  • S.Luggo

    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

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

  • richardwb1

    “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

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

  • Rachel Ray Jihad

    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

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

  • PsycGirl

    [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

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

  • The Silver Fox

    [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

    Today we are all Georgetown society matrons!

  • llibra

    [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

    Shockingly mean.

  • Decker

    [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

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

  • edgydrifter

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

  • desertwind

    Bitch better not cross The Voodoo Queen.
