Guest List is Out for State Dinner for South Korean President

Two head scratchers and a laugher come to mind when perusing the list. The two head scratchers are D. Scott Davis, Chairman and CEO, UPS (He is one of the very few corporate types invited to the dinner) and Lee Rosenberg, President, American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

The laugher is Billie Jean King. I was at an event in Chicago, when President Obama was first running for Senate. It was an event for Obama's opponent, Blair Hull. The event was specifically to announce that King was endorsing Hull over Obama. I distinctly remember King grabbing the microphone before the small group and shouting how important it was that Hull be the Democratic senate candidate in Illinois rather than Obama.

  1. Excellency? Honorable?

    Does that chit still fool anyone?
    One has to be seriously stupid to refer to these parasites in that way. It is sickening beyond sickening that some indoctrinated weaklings refer to these psychopaths as "Leaders".

  2. I wonder how much this little dinner party is going to cost us. Is 'Mr. Michael P. Moore' that Michael Moore? If so, they will have to buy a lot more food. More tax dollars we don't have on their way to a later toilet flushing party.

  3. Thanks for posting this informative attendee list. Candy Crowley the recent debate questioner along with Scott Pelley, yes an 'ubiased' media being wined-dined(paid off?). As noted, Michael Moore (will he remove the frayed ball cap?). And also as one commenter noted, one really can no longer exhalt the political class with titles like 'honorable,' most are anything but.

  4. Guys (star-gazer and anon), it isn't the Michael Moore that you think it is. THAT Michael Moore's middle name is Francis. Trust me, I thought the same thing when I first saw the name, but I immediately looked it up to be sure. I don't know who Michael P. Moore is, but he certainly isn't the hypocritical, ball cap wearing, Jabba the Hut figure that we all know and love....

    Before anybody blows an o-ring, I am being facetious with the whole "know and love" thing.
