The PEOTUS departed Hay-Adams at 6:17 p.m. and at arrived at 6:34 p.m. at No. 9 Grafton St., Chevy Chase (right off the circle). Thanks to the good work of Hans Nichols (of Bloomberg and "Daily Show" fame), Montgomery County property tax records showed this is the home of conservative columnist George Will (valued at $1.9 million, according to the 2008 levy).
We're still awaiting confirmation that this is indeed Will's house from the transition, but your pool is satisfied with the documentation.
Your pool has been told it's a dinner party.
And, thanks to an enterprising photographer, a shot through a window showed op-ed stalwarts William Kristol and David Brooks are also part of this unlikely gathering of tight, right suits.
Transition mouthpiece Tommy Vietor was also spied inside the manse.
This is for real, folks. The bloggers are going to love this one.
First of all, photographers taking photos through the window at a dinner party is just creepy. Second of all, we're really supposed to be outraged about this or something? Why wouldn't he talk to conservative writers? It's not as if he shied away from the other side during the campaign, even going on Bill O'Reilly to get yelled at by that old gasbag. Let him try to work his charm with that crowd. There's little downside.
Nah, there's no outrage or anger. What I feel is more like pity.
Could you imagine wasting a perfectly good evening with that company?

I laughed when I heard about this
Basically its a room full of people whose work over the past year and a half or so was dedicated to defeating Obama. And now they have to sit down at a table with the living, breathing proof of their total defeat.
