Dinner from Hell

I will never complain about another dinner party I go to again:

Barack Obama took the next big step in his Republican charm offensive on Tuesday night, when he dined with several of the nation's most prominent conservative pundits.

The president-elect arrived at the Chevy Chase, Md., home of syndicated columnist George Will shortly after 6:30 p.m., according to a press pool report. Greeting him at the residence were other luminaries of the conservative commentariat, including the Weekly Standard's William Kristol, New York Times columnist David Brooks, and Charles Krauthammer of the Washington Post.

What was the conversation like? "Remember that time a few months back, when you said I was a danger to the Nation? Please pass the asparagus?"

I know, I know, change the tone, reach across, hope, change and all that. But cost. If we can't snub William Kristol, what's the fun in winning elections?

Strangely enough, I LOVE George Will. He's always got the last page in Newsweek.
