Taking Out The Trash: WHCD Edition

What we almost missed today…

• CNN reports Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) will not actually be attending the WHCD tomorrow as a guest of Fox News.

• C-SPAN isn’t the only place you can catch the WHCD dinner. CNN and MSNBC will both be airing it. And according to a release, CNN’s Kate Bolduan will be live from the red carpet “to capture the arrivals of the Washington and Hollywood elite.”

Sam Haskell celebrated “Promises I Made My Mother” with a book party last night (to kick off WHCD weekend?). We hear those in attendance included Miss DC Kate Marie Grinold, Tammy Haddad (complete with TamCam), NBC’s Betsy Fischer, Bloomberg’s Margaret Carlson and Kate Michael.
