WHCA Dinner: Ladies and Gentlemen, Set Your TIVOs

If the WHCA Dinner is our Oscars, then it makes sense for C-SPAN to be our E! C-SPAN sources confirm that, for the first time, Washington's favorite cable channel will be covering the "red carpet" entrance live, meta-broadcasting the unexpurgated version what "Access Hollywood" and "Entertainment Tonight" will whittle down into a montage of Jane Fonda and that supermodel Whatsherface.


We heard that the SPAN was originally going to do a whole "Joan and Melissa" thing, with Steve Scully and Brian Lamb earnestly asking Ann Compton and the junior spokeswoman for the House Committee on Whatever, "Who are you wearing?" But how many times can you hear -- let alone see -- "Ann Taylor" before before you poke your eyes out with a shrimp fork?

Complete sked after the jump. FWIW, Wonkette will be one of the B-listers roped into commenting on whole sad affair, right there with Ron Silver. Hey, they pre-empted "America and the Courts" for this, people.

LIVE beginning at 6pm - Guest arrival at the red carpet. (we will be watching the guests as they arrive. In typical C-SPAN style, we will provide our audience with the scene... not doing any interviews...just watching and listening. Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and others will also be in the red carpet arrival area...they will do their own interviews. We'll just be watching)

Around 7:30 or so we are airing a taped discussion on Hollywood and Politics with Ron Silver, Jeff Greenfield, etc.

Around 9pm we'll re-air some highlights from the red carpet arrival...

Program begins at 9:30 w/ Pres. Bush, Cedric the Entertainer and others.

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
