On my phone (don’t make me get the link) looking at the WSJ and, in “White House Crashers Filmed for Show,” this popped out at me:

A Bravo spokeswoman said that the couple, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, had told camera crews for Half Yard Productions, which produces the reality television series “The Real Housewives of D.C.,” that they had been invited to the dinner “and the producers had no reason to believe otherwise.”

Dude, if a couple of no name aspiring TV wannabees – on cable, not even the networks – say they’ve been invited to a State Dinner and nobody looks at them askance, what does that say about your guest list?


Remember when Bush had the Queen over and the journalists were all whining that it was only intelligent people and heads of industry and people that the Queen and her retinue would actually enjoy talking to, but John Travolta wasn’t invited? 。。。
