When the Embassy’s Rockin’…

Suspicious Package- WaPo‘s Tom Toles, Christina Sevilla of the U.S. Trade Representative’s office, Bloomberg’s Tim Burger, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Bryan Greene and LAT‘s Josh Meyer- performed at the Danish Embassy Friday night, across the street from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s house (she no-showed). The event was in advance of the UN’s Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December and the band dedicated one of its last songs The Beatles’ “Come Together” to its cause.

Adoring fans included Dick Keil, Anu Rangappa, Juleanna Glover, Kiki Ryan, Brian Walsh, Doug Heye, Mark Paustenbach, Sasha Issenberg, Wendy Gordon, Jill Collins, Lauren Vicary, Kenny Day, Adam Zagorin and Allan Lengel, among others. The after-party continued at the Darlington House on Dupont Circle… there we were joined by Matthew Cooper, Polson Kanneth and Amy Holmes, to name a few.

What “Last Laughs” Will Journos Give Bush?

Dana Milbank interviews a handful of White House reporters to find out (in light of the funny anecdotes now being recalled from the Ford administration) what funny stories will reporters tell about President Bush when he passes?

    But probably the most promising chicken-head story was provided by Dick Keil, the former Bloomberg News reporter Bush called “Stretch.” The 6-foot-5 Stretch recalled a 2001 news conference on the Bush ranch in Texas, when an unusually talkative Bush exhausted all questions and was finally asked what he had done that day. Recalled Keil: “He noted that he had begun his morning by spending some ‘quality time with the first lady.’ Following a dramatic pause for effect, he got that wry grin, and said, ‘Usually, I go running.’ “
