Read this: Ex-Redskins seek better jobs (Heath Shuler, Fred Smoot)
"We weren't successful with me as quarterback, so I lost my job."
-- Rep. Heath Shuler (won four, lost nine as QB) arguing why he thinks Nancy Pelosi should be ousted from the top of the party which --hint, hint -- might open up a spot on the leadership ladder for a young conservative Democrat from North Carolina.
"It's time for the black Ryan Seacrest of sports, life and politics to be heard."
-- Fred Smoot making a pitch for someone to hire him as a pundit, now that his plans to open a D.C. Waffle House are on hold. "Everybody looks at what they're good at," he tells Dan Steinberg, "and I've always been good at talking." In a mini-audition, blabs about Favre, Wall, McNabb.
