The British dude who’s on Countdown with Keith Olbermann a lot wrote a book! About Obama! Just like EVERYONE ELSE! Bully for him!
Brit political writer Richard Wolffe had a book par-tay in Washington, D.C. Monday night and Politico was there at Cafe Atlantico to document it. Never one to miss out on a party was Senior White House Advisor and Grand Dame of Fierceness, Valerie Jarett, who was also there, being her fetching self as usual. Other party guests included Obama speechwriter Jon Farveau and actress Rashida Jones (um, are they dating or NOT?), David Axelrod, Gwen Ifill, Michele Norris and more.
The book is called “Renegade.” I can safely say I probably won’t read it, but it was humorous to hear Wolffe try to justify why people should buy his Obama book over the eleventy ka-billion other Obama books already on the saturated OBAMANIA market.
It talks about his basketball game! Ooo, goodie! I’m SOLD!
