British Author Finds ‘Humility’ In Missing TV Interview Due to Oversleeping

Matthew Hancock, a British Minister of Parliament and author, must have made sure to set an alarm for a party in D.C. celebrating the American publication of his book Masters of Nothing. He was there on time Tuesday, unlike an uncomfortable episode he experienced in London earlier this year.

“I haven’t heard about it for a while but it’s very nice of you to remind me,” Hancock, 34, told FishbowlDC, when asked if he still gets grief for the time he failed to show up for a TV interview in London. He missed the spot because he didn’t wake up in time.

“What it reminds us is we’re all flawed,” he said with a laugh. “And if you assume that anything can be done perfectly, whether a regulation implemented perfectly, or a minister gets up on time every day, we’re all going to fail. We’re all flawed individuals and we need that humility in policy making to get things right.”

What a deliciously P.C. answer.

What was particularly troublesome (read: hilarious) about Hancock’s sleep-in is that the segment he was booked for was about… Read more

Ex-Politico’s Karin Tanabe: ‘I was Terrified’

Ex-Politico staffer Karin Tanabe revealed last night that there will be a sequel to her fictional book The List. “There’s got to be a sequel,” she said at a party celebrating the publication of her first book.

Though The List is a kind of fictional tell-all about Tanabe’s tenure at Politico, several current staffers still showed up to offer congratulations. Former employees showed up as well, including Kendra Marr Chaikind, who was fired from the publication in 2011.

“I wrote it really fast in secrecy,” Tanabe said in a short speech to the room of 70-ish attendees. She started it in the summer of 2011 while still working at Politico. “I was terrified,” she said.

Tanabe acknowledged other Politico “survivors” in the room (some of whom could be heard trading jokes about Politico) and said her book is about “paying homage” to reporters working in today’s new media environment. Of new media, she said, “It’s easier to make your career but also break your career.”

At one point, what appeared to be the cast of D.C. Housewives swooped in and had their photo snapped by the photographer. Among the women (and wearing all sorts of furs and leathers) were… Read more

The Week Hosts Academy Awards Bash

The Kalorama manse of lobbyist Juleanna Glover played host to The Week‘s first annual Academy Awards party last night.  Complete with Oscar-shaped cookies, popcorn and tuxedo-clad servers passing trays of Junior Mints, Milk Duds and Redvines, the event was a perfect balance of festive glitz and a casual night at the movies.

Despite the all-star lineup of party hosts (Ron Bonjean, Tammy Haddad, Juleanna Glover and Karen Finney), the fete was not over-attended, offering around 100 guests a relaxed atmosphere to mix, mingle and eat their weight in miniature grilled cheese sandwiches* (see: me).  Spotted taking in the festivities were FD’s Mary Kathryn Covert and Michael Steel, CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Sam Dealey of Qorvis, Sarah Bonjean, Janet Donovan, NRSC’s Brian WalshLynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times, soon-to-be USA Today‘s Jackie Kucinich, Doug Heye, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Mark Paustenbach, Glenn Ballard, Pepper Watkins, Jay Newton-Small, Jeremy Bash of the CIA, Barbara Martin, Becca Glover Watkins, Kimball Stroud, Washington Life‘s Kevin Chaffee, WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart, Daily Caller’s Megan Mulligan,  UrbanDaddy’s Jeff Dufour and an uber-preggers Jayne Sandman.

The Week Snags Party Set to Host Oscar Fete

The Week has recruited an all-star team of Washington party hosts to help with their first annual “Oscar Viewing Party.”  Tammy Haddad, Ron Bonjean, Juleanna Glover and Karen Finney will join The Week at Glover’s Kalorama manse on Sunday, February 27, 2011 for a toast to the Academy.  A sneak peek at the invitation offered hints of “red carpet arrivals” and suggested “festive attire.”

If the hosts’ past performances are any indication of attendance, this party is going to be packed.  By “festive,” we hope they mean tank tops and board shorts because it’s going to be caliente in there.

Journos Get Jacked

 

ABC’s Rick Klein, Daily Caller’s Alex Pappas and Becca Glover, CBSNews.com’s Brian Montopoli, Kenny Day of MainJustice, Chris Bodenner from The Atlantic, “J.Do” Janet Donovan, Christine Delargy of CBS, National Journal’s Matt Cooper, Liz Glover and Politico’s Shira Toeplitz were a few of the media types spotted downing whiskey with the Tennessee congressional delegation at the home of Juleanna Glover last night.  Complete with a curbside bar, statues and swizzles sticks in the shape of Jack Daniels, valet parking and plenty of swag, Glover’s Kalorama manse was transformed into headquarters for the “Back Jack” campaign, the company’s push to make Jack Daniels’ birthday a national holiday.   We’re not sure if the campaign will be a success but it certainly succeeded in getting us drunk. 

Fred Feted: A Toast to Thompson’s Memoir

Presidential candidate of yesteryear and former GOP Senator Fred Thompson and his new memoir “Teaching the Pig to Dance” were celebrated at the home of Juleanna Glover on Saturday evening.

Despite intense weekend heat and humidity (Note: Thompson was not rocking a Hypercolor button-down – that’s sweat), journalists such as WaPo’s Amy Argetsinger, NBC’s Betsy Fischer, Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich, Janet Donovan, Politico’s Kiki Ryan and Jonathan Martin, CBS’ Jan Crawford and Christine Delargy joined guests like Jack and Susanna Quinn, Mark Neuman, Christopher Reiter, Janine Turner and Karen Feld to raise a glass for Thompson.

Noticeably absent from the fete were several of the invitation-featured hosts including Kay Kendall, Tammmy Haddad and Bo Derek.
