Open Thread Wednesday

Did anyone have a favorite political April Fool's prank yesterday? Yesterday's debut of MRC Latino kept us from making April Fool's Day fake-quote mischief on Tuesday, but our blogger Tom Johnson has always written some funny stuff when we've done fake "Notable Quotables."

This fake tweet is pretty funny, for example: "@LukeRussert Ppl say I'm only on TV b/c of my dad but geez next to Ronan Farrow I'm Johnny F'ing Carson."

Here's a few more:

"The more I think about it, who cares whether my father was Woody Allen, Frank Sinatra, or Darth Vader? Our obsessive reverence for patriarchy has done so much damage to this country. It's why women don't have the right to control their own bodies." -- Ronan Farrow, MSNBC's Ronan Farrow Daily, April 1.

"The search for Flight 370 goes on, and two deadlines loom. One is that batteries in the aircraft's black box are close to running out, which would make any undersea wreckage much harder to locate. The other is that climate change soon will enable the Loch Ness Monster to swim from Scotland to the Indian Ocean, potentially confusing and even threatening search teams." -- MSNBC's Chris Hayes on the April 1 All In.

"I detest what performance-enhancing drugs have done to baseball. Sometimes I find the true allegations about PEDs as depressing as the false allegations about Iraqi WMDs. Then I regain perspective and remember that nobody died when Barry Bonds lied." -- ESPN2's Keith Olbermann on the April 1 Olbermann.
