Shots From Today’s Daily Beast Inaugural Brunch

100_3570.jpg

The Daily Beast and Morning Joe crews jointly hosted a well-attended (though tricky to-get-to courtesy of a myriad of road blocks) brunch this morning at the Council on Foreign Relations building. While plenty of bold-faces mingled the room imbibing “Obamimosas” and quiche, the star of the hour had to be David Axlerod whose hand everyone wanted to shake.

We bumped into Peggy Noonan who told us that after the pilot on her US Airways flight from New York yesterday came on to announce they were departing for Washington D.C. the entire plane had burst into applause.

Jay Carney
, who is departing Time to be Joe Biden‘s director of communications showed us his transition Blackberry (they get a new one next Tuesday) and said that there will be no AIMing in the Vice President’s office, either (Joe will have to give up his Berry, also). He also said that he doesn’t foresee himself coming back to news reporting after his stint in the government, though “maybe as a columnist.” Of course what journalism will look like in four to eight years is anyone’s guess! Pics from the brunch after the jump.

Larry Sinclair’s Wild Ride with Obama–MSM Cover-up?

Larry Sinclair claimed to have performed oral sex on Barack Obama in the back of a limo, and later in a hotel room while smoking crack cocaine. Oddly, the New York Times has ignored this important story.

He’s now suing Obama, David Axlerod, the DNC, and FBLA. (Okay, we made that up. But if he knew of our secret plans for world domination, he would have sued us.)

Sinclair had been claiming to be a big-spending drug dealer, all the while living in Duluth on welfare. He’s been sparring with Dear Murray, the dean of LA River bloggers.
