A remark on HuffPost’s soiree

“Lovely Huffington Post party tonight.”
–Former scribe Matt Cooper, now with financial crisis commission, who mingled on the gorgeous rooftop of HuffPost‘s Pennsylvania Avenue office Thursday night.

Sean Penn blocked from Washington Examiner scribe

“It would have been a better story had they gone to fisticuffs.”
-A PR rep at the HuffPost party Thursday night regretting (a little) that actor Sean Penn and Washington Examiner’s Tara Palmeri were blocked from interaction at HuffPost’s party. (Backstory: Palmeri was thrown out of a D.C. event on Haiti earlier this year where Penn appeared. Palmeri posed a few questions that he and flacks didn’t like; the scribe was thrown out of the event.)
