Gala Geffen Inauguration Bash Planned

According to the New York Post's Page Six column, Maureen Dowd is planning a little gathering just in time for the Obama Coronation Inauguration.

MAUREEN Dowd's love of the Hollywood elites continues unabated. The Times columnist and avowed liberal, who has dated Michael Douglas and Aaron Sorkin, is hosting an inaugural weekend bash at her DC home honoring David Geffen. Insiders say she's hoping President-elect Barack Obama will stop by. Geffen helped turn the tide against Hillary Rodham Clinton in California by stating in Dowd's column that Clinton was "polarizing" and "ambitious" and calling Obama inspirational. Geffen then held several Obama fund-raisers.
I guess my invitation got lost in the mail.

Hat tip to New York magazine's website that added this gratuitous aside:
([Dowd]'s looking more and more like Arianna Huffington ... just check out the picture!)
They say that like it's a bad thing.

Update (1/20/09): Maureen's party was the must invite of the Inaugural season. Full report here.

Which one will be more appalled at the comparison: Dowd or Huffington (or their respective stylists)?

And this kind of maybe-the-president-will-swing-by-my-soiree story involving a reporter or journalist or columnist always makes me queasy.

What's more, my invitation never arrived either, although my cable bill landed in the mailbox ahead of schedule.
