Mika Brzezinski’s Book Party at Arianna Huffington’s House

Huffington Post senior editor Willow Bay and co-founder Arianna Huffington hosted a book party for Morning Joe co-anchor Mika Brzezinski‘s new book All Things at Once last night at Ms. Huffington’s Brentwood home. Arianna, perhaps one of the most charming people on the planet explained her role in encouraging Mika when her galleys came out. We don’t know why Joe Scarborough was there…also selling his book released in June of last year. But he was. They’re not married to each other right? Did Alan Colmes have to book tour with Sean Hannity? Somehow Joe made it about him,”It was in this room a few years ago that I predicted Barack Obama would never win against the Clinton machine,” he told the swanky LA literati. “Glad it wasn’t on TV.”

Mika, was finally given the microphone and noted she was warned against writing this book because it was too honest and could “damage her brand.” She seem genuinely impressed with the caliber of the crowd.

We spotted Larry David, yes that Larry David. Sherry Lansing was there. Journos James Rainey from LAT, Tina Daunt now of Huffpo LA, Sandra Tsing Loh, Mickey Kaus of Slate.com and of course Lawrence O’Donnell from MSNBC.

We will post more pictures later today.
