Inaugural Roundup

  • Guess who's not coming to dinner? On Monday, Barack Obama will host a banquet at the Hilton Washington in honor of his former rival John McCain -- one of a series of bipartisan-spirited dinners that night, with others paying tribute to Joe Biden and Colin Powell. Not on the guest list, though: Sarah Palin. Mother Jones reported yesterday that the Alaska governor will be in her home state preparing for the new legislative session. Her rep told the magazine he didn't know if she had been invited; the Obama inaugural committee declined to say.

  • Conservative counter-programming: Invitations went out yesterday to a right-leaning inauguration-night party hosted by NewMajority.com, a new conservative group blog helmed by former Bush speechwriter David Frum. The e-mail asks guests to "Celebrate/Commiserate [cuz (what) else r we gna do?]" Is that how the kids are talking these days?
