Party boy no more

According to Richard Johnson's gossip column in the NY Post, James Guckert/Jeff Gannon can't believe he hasn't been invited to tomorrow's White House Correspondents Dinner. But that's because everyone who would have invited him assumes that someone else has invited him—
"It seems to me to be odd to exclude the one person who has brought more attention to the White House press corps than anyone else in years," Gannon tells PAGE SIX's Jared Paul Stern. "Probably many who would want to extend such an invitation already assume I will be in attendance.

Guckert/Gannon attended the dinner the past two years and had every intention of going this year. Joe Strupp of E&P quoted Guckert/Gannon in February—

"I'm sure someone is going to ask me or offer me the opportunity to go. It is a great publicity event."

Maybe for him, but not for his date. I fear that Guckert/Gannon's understanding of Washington is only skin deep.
