” Washington never looks more out of touch than it will this weekend, when movie stars, music moguls, media mavens and their advertisers join President Obama at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.”
” As we say in Washington, the dinner is “lousy optics” – rarely more so than Saturday night, when the backdrop will be joblessness, a budget deficit, the Boston Marathon bombing and a blood-red line in Syria.”
While we were unable to locate the guest list and menu for the 2013 affair , we did come across both for last year . This should give the reader some idea of the sacrifice the first family is enduring for you .
The 2012 Guest List:
The guest list seems to be lacking in actual journalists , doesn’t it ? Then again , the MSM is lacking in actual journalists as well .
The 2012 Menu :
” The White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner menu is a selection of four courses, chosen by the board out of a total of nine. Here is the planned menu:
Salad: Black lentil terrine with lump crabmeat; tango green and red artisan greens; red and yellow tear drop tomatoes, paired with a dill vinaigrette.
Break presentation: Seven-grain rolls; white and wheat rolls; sourdough rolls; flatbreads and butter.
Entree: Texas-rubbed petite filet with a calvados demi, paired with duo of jump shrimp seasoned with red curry, roasted haricot verts, baby pepper, patty pan squash, tasso mache choux risotto.
Dessert: The Galaxy–rich chocolate truffle mousse layered with chocolate genoise and almond macaroon; ganache truffle center finished in chocolate glaze, garnished with fresh raspberries.
Freshly brewed regular and decaf coffee: A variety of regular and herbal teas.
Wines: Estancia chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.”
