Politics: Obama’s state dinner plays like a lefty’s night out

  • Who’s invited? A ton of Obama staffers and anticipated Obama staffers will be there tonight. And a couple of big-name Hollywood types. And some who kind of span both celebrity and Obama staff, like Kal Penn. Oh, and Rahm Emanuel’s brother Ari, who was the inspiration behind Jeremy Piven’s “Entourage” character.
  • Who’s not invitedA lot of Republicans. Sen. Dick Lugar and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal are pretty much the most likely tighty righties holding down the fort among the 300 guests. Fox news is already playing it off as a major slight for some reason. What did you expect? You haven’t exactly done him any favors. source
