Pool Report #4
Hay-Adams to George Will's house

The PEOTUS departed Hay-Adams at 6:17 p.m. and at arrived at 6:34 p.m. at No. 9
Grafton St., Chevy Chase (right off the circle). Thanks to the good work of Hans
Nichols (of Bloomberg and "Daily Show" fame), Montgomery County property tax
records showed this is the home of conservative columnist George Will (valued at
$1.9 million, according to the 2008 levy).

We're still awaiting confirmation that this is indeed Will's house from the
transition, but your pool is satisfied with the documentation.

Your pool has been told it's a dinner party.

And, thanks to an enterprising photographer, a shot through a window showed
op-ed stalwarts William Kristol and David Brooks are also part of this unlikely
gathering of tight, right suits.

Transition mouthpiece Tommy Vietor was also spied inside the manse.

This is for real, folks. The bloggers are going to love this one.

Why's he courting conservatives?
The secret service guy who triggered the delays on Metra should be ARRESTED and FIRED. And if this was an assignment--the supervisor who had him do this should be ARRESTED AND FIRED. They are TRYING to cause problems with people getting to the inauguration from Chicago--plain and simple.
