Cocktail Chatter With Clooney, Plame, Snow at D.C. Bash (FREEPERs mentioned!)
Editor and Publisher ^ | 4-29-06 | Joe Strupp

Posted on 04/29/2006 11:28:30 PM PDT by STARWISE

NEW YORK Saturday night’s much-awaited White House Correspondents Dinner, featuring appearances by President Bush, George Clooney and Valerie Plame, among others, kicked off with a round of cocktail parties scattered over two floors at the Washington Hilton. At the Reuters’ party you could get a drink called The Cheney Shot—made with Wild Turkey.

Over 2700 attendees were expected. Jeff "Skunk" Baxter of the Doobie Brothers, a guest of The Washington Times, was dressed in a kilt.

About 15 protestors from the conservative Web site Free Republic raised a fuss outside on a sunny evening, passing out baby pacifiers with “CNN” written on them and carrying signs. One featured a picture of Osama bin Laden and the words: “My best friends are Dana Priest, James Risen, and Eric Lichtblau” (all recently named Pulitzer winners).

Inside, Valerie Plame and husband Joseph Wilson were in the crowd spilling out of the ABC News party (they are guests of the network at the dinner). Plame was pleasant, but asked by E&P why she came tonight she said, “I’m sorry,” adding in mock-red carpet lingo, “I’m wearing Armani.” Her gown was ivory.

Asked what might happen if she met the president, she repeated, “I’m wearing Armani.”

One of the most valuable men in America. Definitely one of the most effective. Long live Rush.

If this idiot is an example of a covert agent, no wonder 9/11 came as a complete surprise. The scary part is not that she was ever "exposed" but that she would even qualify.

The press produced some video parody about the whitehouse press secretary where a real Helen Thomas

That was put on by Colbert who was the "entertainment." He literaly died at the podium as the audience only laughed politely a few times. The President was the best! See if you can catch his remarks in a rerun on CSPAN.

Turns out it was staytrue, but Buford had one in a similar vein.

to all

I manufactured (printed and mounted) almost all the signs we used.

However, almost none of them were my ideas.

Kristinn requested that I do the "my best friends" sign. I made it, even though I thought it was one of the weaker ones I made. My favorite was the one that had "The US Media is too scared to publish this" and it had one of the Danish cartoons featured.

I agree with all these remarks

After watching, I went to my car which was blocked in by traffic and secret service. So I made a makeshift sign that read

Call 911

Colbert's

Career

Just Died

I had about 100 people walk by. Most did not read my sign, but about 20-30 laughed hysterically after reading it.

Quick thinking on your part.

It's sad when a young man crashes and burns.

"Colbert was seated next to venerable Helen Thomas."

Ooh, yuk! If he had any sense, he would have got up and moved. How can anyone enjoy their meal sitting next to a sour face...
