Cameron State Dinner Guest List is Out

by Keith Koffler on March 14, 2012, 8:40 pm

Here is the list for you to peruse.

A few highlights:

George Clooney is on hand, without a date.

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is there to continue his pursuit of the Secretary of State post in a second Obama term.

Warren Buffett, who has donated his brand in its entirety to President Obama, is of course in attendance. It looks like he finagled an invite for his daughter Susan as well.

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is there too – are they thinking they can pluck his vote for the health care bill?

Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder got a vote of confidence. And former Mayor Ed Koch was shipped down from New York.

And of course Valerie Jarrett will be at the party. She goes to absolutely everything.

Hillary is there, but no Bill.

BTW, Michelle’s outfit was by Marchesa, according to the pool report:

FLOTUS wore a sheer, dark teal (or blue-gray– there is some disagreement among the poolers) floor-length gown that has a short train in the back and ruching at the waist. Her hair was pulled back off her shoulders and she wore a bold, sparkly, multi-strand necklace that was a beaded mix of blues, teals, and turquoise.

Judge for yourself. Here’s a link to some photos.

Anna Wintour is known as Nuclear Wintour by those who have worked for her.

The dress designer is Harvey Weinstein’s wife. How rich. These fat cat moguls all have wives who make the world a better place one designer dress at a time.

Susan March 14, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Lots of his campaign bundlers are there too. Just like Clinton sold sleepovers in the Lincoln bedroom, Obama sells seats to taxpayer funded extravaganzas…

pianogirl88 March 14, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Anna Wintour is one of the big bundlers.

Give me a frickin’ break…..the Honorable Valerie Jarrett!?! Who are they kidding?

Dress is horrendous as usual. They never seem to fit her body correctly.

Sadie March 14, 2012 at 9:18 pm

She’s built for burkah-wear.

Star March 15, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Too matchy-matchy…Mrs Cameron would have drawn jeers on FASHION POLICE, too. Of course, Joan Rivers would NEVER…

Robin H March 14, 2012 at 9:12 pm

What is with the ‘honorable” title? I found a state department website with a listing of gifts received. Up until the O took office they were listed as “President” and “First Lady”. Now it’s “The Honorable Barack Obama, President of the United States” and “Michelle Obama, First Lady”. Are they afraid we’re going to forget them once they leave office? God, what egos. And none of them are honorable, especially Jay Carney.

Sadie March 14, 2012 at 9:17 pm

Interesting.”Honorable” BO and the “Honorable” Valerie – now guess which one is the real president.

Granny Jan March 14, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Honorable? See for yourself.

Robin H March 14, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Saw that Granny. Love all your stuff! And I agree, maybe the reason they have to call themselves Honorable is cause no one else will!

Susan March 14, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Another great video Granny Jan. He is a petty tyrant, who feeds his ego by putting his opponents in embarrassing situations where they can’t fight back. The photos with his feet on the furniture really tick me off. It is infuriating to see him treat historic pieces of furniture like the Resolute Desk with such blatant disregard.

Boo March 14, 2012 at 9:41 pm

I am beyond confused. I commented here about the “honorable” Valerie Jarrett as she was listed at a previous state dinner. Now I see even more!!!! – John Brennan? Jay Carney? Jon Favreau? Patrick F. Kennedy? Jacob Lew? David Plouffe? Pete Rouse? There are many more, but I couldn’t stand to go back and count. I need to calm down. Is the Honorable BO the dog next? Someone please explain.

Granny Jan March 14, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Boo March 14, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Thank you GJ. Your reply lowered the BP a bit. I am calling “Here, honorable kitty” but she doesn’t answer.

The Honorable–a Hill term–and only for members and maybe cabinet officials..Not movie stars or staffers. So ironic, isn’t it?

Sadie March 14, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Here’s the menu.

First Course

Crisped halibut with potato crust

Shaved Brussels sprouts, Applewood smoked bacon

Second Course

Spring garden lettuces

Shallot dressing, shaved breakfast radish

Cucumbers and avocados

Main Course

Bison Wellington

Red wine reduction, French beans, Cipollini onions


Warm Meyer lemon steamed pudding with Idaho huckleberry sauce and Newton Pippin apples

An American wine will be paired with each course.

pianogirl88 March 14, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I heard that the WH was bragging that many of the veggies/salad stuff came from ME-chelle’s garden out in the back forty. I call BS on that!

srdem65 March 14, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Bison?! They’re serving their guests buffalo meat! ugh.

Star March 15, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Agree–ew. Very lean–doesn’t that mean tough?

Star March 15, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Buffalo…huckleberries–when’s the hoedown?

srdem65 March 14, 2012 at 9:34 pm

I hope everyone has a good time and enjoys the meal that we paid for. With his polls tanking, MrO might be the captain of the Obama Titanic.
Play on.

Janna March 14, 2012 at 9:36 pm

OMGoodness…they raided the tack(y)le box again for the WTF blotus jewellllls didnt they ???? Holy canolli..I am so embarassed for this country. Wow….can I just move to Canada please ?

Janna March 14, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Never mind….I say that butt I do NOT mean it…I am armed and angry. Bring it …..

Lizzy March 15, 2012 at 5:34 am

Don’t feel bad that tackle box around her neck probably cost several
thousand dollars and so did that dress bet the whole thing was around
$10,000 at least.

Anonna March 14, 2012 at 9:52 pm

MIchelle Antoinette’s hair is not long enough to be pulled back off her shoulders, unless they are talking about the hair that grows on her shoulders.

I don’t suppose there are any Republicans on the guest list!


rawheadrex March 14, 2012 at 11:01 pm

Amazing how that which is nothing descends to the bottomless pit. So it is with that which has achieved nothing and has created only a vacuum of responsibility. Welcome to Obamaresponsibility. The Hollywood sycophants are in closest of quarters, embracing each other and wondering how their next movie may enhance the nonsense of a lost presidency and country whilst enriching them. Oh, the dilemmas of the superelite!

Susan March 15, 2012 at 9:28 am

The Hollyweirds don’t do anything for free. The Daily Caller is reporting that Obama’s propaganda film cost his campaign $345,353. His campaign refused to comment on whether Tom Hanks was paid for his services…

Redwine March 15, 2012 at 2:49 am

That Justice Scalia was present scares the crap outta me.
