Gov. Dannel P. Malloy

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Monday that he attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner over the weekend in Washington at the invite of People magazine.

The correspondents’ dinner is an annual event attended by the president as well as a host of Washington-based journalists, politicians, and celebrities. This year’s dinner was headlined by comedian and late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien.

The governor said he was seated with “Parks and Recreation” star Amy Poehler, as well as “Mad Men” actress Jessica Paré.

“It was kind of fun,” he said.

The governor’s office did not issue a press advisory ahead of Malloy’s trip. Asked Monday whether the public should be notified when the governor is leaving the state, Malloy deferred to Andrew Doba, his spokesman, who said the governor’s office keeps the news media apprised of events where Malloy is speaking or has the opportunity to be interviewed. The correspondents’ dinner fit neither category, he said.

“I can assure you, the lieutenant governor knew,” Malloy said.

The governor said he also attended an after party hosted by the MSNBC cable news network following the dinner.

“Rachel Maddow was making cocktails,” he said.

I don’t want a celebrity governor, I want a good governor. Tragically, I have a wannabe in both those categories.

The media is only told when Malloy is giving a speech or being interviewed - something public. So, if he sneaks out of town to party like a bon vivant, the public and media is not told. That’s quite a standard.

Maybe we can ship him out to Chris Dodd….

Governor Mallory fits comfortably into the crowd. Networking for a future DC job? We can only hope. How much more damage could he do in DC? Afraid to think of it.

After feeding at the public trough for more than 20 years, Malloy expects this to be paid for by someone else. If he had to write the check he would be home watching American Idol. It is standard procedure for these hypocrites.

The thought of having cocktails with Rachel Maddow would be far more than enough to get me to give up drinking.
