“Was a great time,” remarked Dan Henning, Press’s spokesman. “Awesome speeches by [House Majority Whip James] Clyburn and [Sen. Byron] Dorgan and Media Matters President Eric Burns.”

Also there: Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (was to speak but was late, “skipped down his long list of evening events to make sure he got to BillÂ’s”, said his aide; Rep Maxine Waters (D-Calif.); Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), WaPo‘s E.J. Dionne, Mother Jones‘ D.C. Bureau Chief David Corn, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin, ABC 7′s Leon Harris, XM talk show host Joe Madison, Karl Frisch; Media Matters founder David Brock, former Clinton WH Counsel Lanny Davis, even conservative commentator Ron Christie; and David Shuster showed up at the end.

“Media Matters throws a solid party,” Henning added. Cuisine included “lobster, some sort of mushroom quesadilla contraption that was amazing, bacon wrapped scallops, etc. Two good bars, too. Lots of books sold, Politics & Prose was there.”
