At White House Correspondents’ Dinner, an Unlikely Trio

(Kyle Samperton).jpgOur interest in Our Nation’s Capital usually involves whatever’s cooking at the Corcoran, the National Building Museum, or the Hirshhorn, but then we saw this photo taken by Kyle Samperton at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. The Saturday night gathering of a whopping 2,500 journalists, politicians, diplomats, celebrities, and a smattering of fashion designers (including Donatella Versace, Narciso Rodriguez, and Jason Wu) brought out rocker—and Obama fan—Jon Bon Jovi, who had the good sense to stand proximal to what we recognized as an Andy Warhol-style pop art graphic of Larry Summers, director of the National Economic Council. To recap, that’s Bon Jovi, Warhol, and Summers. As George Constanza would say, “Worlds are colliding!” Our brother blog, Fishbowl DC, has more images of the “politi-pop” artwork, which adorned the walls at the Atlantic/NJ reception, here.
