My “Cocktail Party” with the “Elite Media”

On Saturday night I was able to attend the RNC “Media Welcome” party at Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, and was able to rub elbows with numerous media and political luminaries while enjoying the finest food and drink from all over New York- good times. My first ten minutes in the door I ran into Larry King, Gov. Pataki, and finally Rudy Giuliani, whose hand I got to shake in one of the highlights of my year.

Later I saw Mayor Bloomberg, Don King (!), Wolf Blitzer (who was next to me at one of the food tables), and numerous other CNN personnel; as usual at these things the room was probably half PR people, but there were also literally dozens of people who I recognized as correspondents/talking heads, but whose names I couldn’t place.

When my sister was in town a few months ago she was in that very building and ran into Michael Moore; alas, Fat Fat Fatty was not on hand for the RNC event. But there was a THRONG wanting to interview Don King everywhere he went. Only in America.

When I first skimmed this, I read the last sentence as containing both "Michael Moore" and "THONG." (shudder) Some things are too horrible to contemplate. ;-)
