TRANSLATION: Bunch of Dudes Turn Out for Dinner with David Cameron
Here we go again:
Even Cameron was impressed by the quality of the people who turned up for the dinner. The list read: David Brooks (New York Times columnist); Joe Klein (Time columnist); Paul Gigot )editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial pages); Richard Haass (president of the Council on Foreign Relations); Bill Kristol (founder of the Weekly Standard), EJ Dionne (Washington Post columnist); Frank Foer (editor, New Republic); David Remnick (editor, New Yorker); Wolf Blitzer (host of CNN’s Situation Room); Maurice Brauchli (executive editor, Washington Post); Michael Gerson (senior fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations) and Irwin Steltzer (Sunday Times columnist).
Okay I know there are ladies in Britain, because there’s a lady on all their money. So why can’t Patrick Wintour of The Guardian see that these are ALL BLOODY BLOKES? Also, who is doing the inviting for this thing? Is it like the Summit Series, where it’s mostly dudes but they invite cheerleaders to fill it out?
Curious if there were women there, and they were just hiding from the scary reporter, or if maybe there was a ratio problem - either in the event itself, or in who was actually visible there. Or maybe it’s me. Women tend to cower under chairs at these events, petrified of being noticed.
