Sorry, You're Not on the List
One in an occasional series of dispatches from parties you should have crashed.
Event: 50th-birthday dance party for political commentator and former recording industry lobbyist Hilary Rosen.
Venue: Georgetown's private L2 Lounge.
Crowd: Tipper Gore, Wolf Blitzer, Debra Lee, Donna Brazile, Dan Glickman, Claire Shipman, David Gregory and other political/media insiders.
Timing: The bash was held a month after Rosen's actual birthday. "None of my friends wanted to have a party until after the election -- and I guess I didn't either," she said. "We had to know we were really celebrating."
Bar: Open, with killer specialty cocktails.
Food: Oysters, carving station, decadent chocolate cake.
Big surprise: Tammy Haddad's birthday video with well-wishers Anderson Cooper, Tucker Carlson, Hillary Clinton and ... Sarah Palin. The Alaska governor taped the personalized greeting after her interview with Greta Van Susteren. "We are very proud of you -- all your successes and all of your accomplishments," said Palin. "Nothing but the best for the next 50 years." And then she held up a handmade sign that said: "Happy Birthday Hillary." She'd misspelled Rosen's name, but was a good sport about giving a shout-out to someone who criticized her a lot during the campaign.
