TV cameras were barred from the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, D.C., tonight, and only one print pool reporter was allowed access to cover the event. If you weren’t invited, AP photographer Charles Dharapak is happy to give you the experience of being left in the parking garage with the president’s motorcade. We wonder how many cars would have been there before those sequestration cuts hit.
If there’s a doggie bag coming, the contents should look something like this.
Sea bass has been on the menu for all three of Obama's big meals this week…dinner with senators, lunch with Paul Ryan, and the Gridiron

It’s a car-themed week for Dharapak. Here’s Rand Paul from early Thursday morning. Is that a motorcade starter kit?
